Yard Sales/Garage Sales
Yard Sales, Garage Sales, whatever you call them, it's that time of year. People go through their precious unused items(junk), put a price on it, and try to get others to purchase it. My husband loves garage sales, my mother loves garage sales, my girls love garage sales, but I HATE THEM!!! Somehow I missed the boat on this one. (According to my family.) Don't get me wrong, I've gotten some good things from a few garage sales, but I'm sure the time I've spent going to them, digging through the stuff, and wasting the gas to drive around would be worth far more than what I've actually saved! Or, maybe I'm just a little bitter because the one and only time I had a garage sale I spent more on lunch than I made!! Now, we do live in the country, but on a paved road. You'd think SOMEONE would stop and buy some of MY good junk! I am trying to get an attitude adjustment about this to make my husband happy. Do you think it's okay to ride along, but sit in the car with a book????
