Me and the girls went Junk-Salin' Saturday.  I don't call it Garage-Saling because...well, that's obvious.  Ever optomistic, several Saturdays a year the girls get their loose change in their little purses and head out to find that elusive bargain.  More often than not we head home dejected with nothing more than a wasted morning.  Sometimes the girls are determined to bring home SOMETHING and so spend their hard-earned allowance or tooth-fairy money on a dollar-store trinket or some disgusting slobbered-upon stuffed animal --BLECH!  These items usually get placed in a pile for OUR future garage sale pretty quickly.

However, this was OUR DAY. 

Emily found a much-longed for pillow pal for 3 bucks.  I had previously refused to buy a pillow pal for 30 bucks.

Sarah got a great deal on an IPOD alarm clock.  5 bucks!  She even bargained and got them to come down from $10...that's my girl!

I got my best deal on a hand-made chest.  The girls are planning to redecorate their play-room into a gaming/media room and this will be made into a toy chest/bench for that room.  I am planning on making a cushion for when they need extra seating.  5 bucks people! We also found some cute girl clothes for Emily, a purse from Macy's with the tags still on and a couple of other things.  Success was OURS!

Guess we'll keep on Junkin'!
