I have started to fail myself already. Just over a month ago, Katie and I decided to start blogging together. We made the deal that we would write something every single day. It’s harder than it sounds and I’ve started to fail. I’ve skipped a few days. But it’s ok, I was with Katie in Iowa for a wedding and stuff.
That actually brings me to what I wanted to discuss with the rest of the world. Katie and I were in Laurens, IA, the same day as the community garage sale was going on. So of course, we packed up and headed out in search of the deals and steals and see what we could find.
I hope everyone gets to experience garage saling at least once in his or her life. It’s an amazing ritual that is hard to describe in writing. Here is one of the tweets I used to try to express how I was feeling shortly after we were done garage saling.Having yard sales brings out some of the strangest things I’ve ever seen. The people, the products for sale and the prices never cease to amaze me. It’s really interesting what some people think is worth trying to sell to other people and what they value other things at. But you know what they say, One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
Luckily, no one was hurt, contracted any diseases or lost large amounts of money. We did find an espresso/coffee maker for $3 that still works along with some movies, a pair of shoes for Katie and a couple other oddities. Sadly, we didn’t make it to the lady’s house that was selling homemade egg rolls before she closed up…
Thank God for such amazing and scary things as garage sales. A way to make a buck, sell your junk and kill a Saturday morning. Do you have any good garage sale stories?
