‘tis the season

to be jolly…

…about YARD SALES!  or garage sales, or tag sales—whatever the wording may be for your part of the country.  Having lived from the deep South all the way up to the Northeast, I’ve noticed that there are several different names for the event.  Interesting.


I had vowed to fully declutter our home before heading out to search for ‘treasures’ among the discards of others, but well, that hasn’t happened.  I tried…really.  But last Saturday morning found us out and about as the girls decided to join in on the fun.  Homeschooling materials, home decor, summer clothing for the baby…we had a great shopping experience. 

But in an attempt towards frugal living, I am also challenged not to bring stuff home simply because it’s inexpensive; often I have to remind myself that we do not need a particular item.  Saying ‘no’ is a little hard at times!
