Loving the good ol' garage sale days of summer!

I love Fridays. No summer school. My husband's working so I feel like I can do whatever I want. So what do I do? Roll right out of bed and go find some garage sales of course! I missed the last two weekends being in Florida, so I had to make up for that time :)
There were free refreshers at Starbucks today from 12-3. I stopped by just about everyone I drove past! YUM
I got this cute little box that has hanging files inside for $1. It's originally from Target. I'll swap out my crate that I've been using for coupons and use this instead. It will look much cuter When I first bought this (like an entire 2 hours ago) I was thinking I'd re-cover it, not so sure on the shamrock thing out year long, but now I'm thinking maybe not. Thoughts?

This is my favorite purchase of the day. Both for $5. I'm planning on using these to make a beautiful shelf like the one over at I Am Momma Hear Me Roar. Looks simple enough! I'll have to show if how/if it works out.

I also got a Radio Flyer wagon for my sister-in-law who wants to use it at her wedding. Brand new for $20. And I got a couple Express shirts and two skirts. And I stopped my Michael's. I love that store - could walk around forever. I bought a pack of plain gift bags and was going to use a 40% off coupon on my phone, but then my phone died. However the cashier was super nice and gave it to me anyway! I love nice people :)

Oh, and did I tell you (no, I did not actually) that we are MOVING! Yup, so that shelf is a plan for our new house. Our own REAL house. It's quite exciting. We close on August 6th and have possesion on closing. (I'll take some pictures and share them with you then!) So that's exactly a week before school starts. At least I'll have some time to get the house somewhat unpacked / set up, but then I'm sure school will take up a lot of my time. Oh, and another great thing about our house - it's .6 miles from my school! So, I'll be walking to school, or at least trying it out. Look at me now, all going "green" and being healthy at the same time!

I'm actually heading off to go camping with a couple of friends for the night - like in a half hour, so I should probably start packing. Dang, it's been a long time since I'm been camping...and it's going to be hot - but hopefully fun too!

So, have you found any sweet garage sale finds lately? I love hearing about your good deals too!


  1. I would redo the shamrocks, but everyone likes different things.

    1. Thanks for the advice. Okay - I probably will because that was my first thought too! (Sometimes I just need someone to agree with me and say, yup, you should do that!) And it will be fun and exciting to make it cuter :)

  2. Wow that's so exciting! Your own home! I can't wait until we can settle in one too! :)

  3. Congrats on the new home! I am a new follower from the 99% hop! Have a great week!

  4. I love garage sales too:) Following you on gfc and fb and hope you could follow me if you'd like:)
