Okay, so it wasn’t just pocket change. It was junk drawer change. And in Canada change can mean anything from a penny on up to a tooney ($2 coin). But even so, we had fun with our junk drawer change today.
The kids are still sick, crouping the weekend away. But Mom and Dad needed to get out of the house for a bit and somehow enjoy the nice weather because, this being Canada and this being September, we are well aware of how few really nice days we have left. So we decided to go garage saling. The kids all piled in the car and didn’t mind tooling around our neighborhood at all. And why should they? They got some sweet stuff out of the deal!
Some of the stuff we got…
A castle, complete with knights, a canon and canon balls, etc.
I also found some items for a friend who is expecting, some Usborne and Scholastic books, and a Calvin and Hobbes book. My husband found a couple of philosophy and economy books that are right up his alley.) It’s amazing what you can do with junk drawer change!
So, do you love a good garage sale? What are some of the bargains you are proudest of?
(Actually, this just in, hubby has taken the “baby” to the ER and they have ordered chest x-rays because his croup should really have gone away by now… he’s had it since Monday. Pray for all my little guys [and my big guy who’s had bronchitis for over a month] to get better if you think of it!)
