I love yard sales

I forgot to write about my exciting yard sale finds this past weekend. I actually hadn't planned on going to yard sales. I woke up around 7:30, got dressed, and headed to the gym. When I got there, I was disappointed to find that he gym didn't open until 9 am - all that effort to get up early for nothing! So to kill time, I drove around looking for yard sales.

My first big find was an HP Photosmart printer for only 5 bucks! I was extremely excited about this, because its a great thing to have for scrapbooking, especially when you have just a few pictures for a couple pages and you don't want to order just a couple pictures. Or if you need to reprint a picture because you screwed it up whilst scrapbooking. My next find was a brand new ink cartridge for my regular printer at home for just a dollar. Those things cost between $25 and $30, so that was quite the exciting find.

After yard-saling, I went back to the gym. They were having an Open House with food and games. For every game you won, you put your name in a jar for a drawing. I only won 1 game while working out, and I found out yesterday that I won a potted plant (gerber daisies) in the drawing. Yay!

Scott started working on the recessed lighting in the bathroom last night. Everything is starting to come together now, which is very exciting. I feel certain we will finish this weekend, as long as there are no complications with the recessed lighting. Keeping my fingers crossed :)


  1. Great deals on the printer and cartridge! I am wishing we had those kind of deals in Lynchburg.

    What color will the bathroom be in? It seems like it is coming along.

  2. Wow, those are some pretty nice finds at the yard sales. I wish we could have one here to get rid of the kids clothes instead of giving them to charity (if that is where they really go).
