Feeling good. And tired. Just wrapped up my Friday night ritual of searching for tomorrow morning's garage sales on Craigslist. This is actually where all of my thrifty ways start. I cannot bear to spend $70 on that cutie little summer dress when instead I can wake my tired ass up on a Saturday morning and get it just the same for $.50. Maybe a little worse for wear, but honestly, sometimes things are better when they are a bit worn in. You know what I mean?
When done the right way, I can find every good and useful thing for my family between the hours of 7-10am on any given Saturday morning. First things first, there will be a cup of coffee in hand. Then I'm free as a bird as I cruise along the open road in search of the master find of the weekend.
Last weekend it was the college girls who were selling everything to begin fresh after graduation. I scored the best dress of my life! Bright green and yellow with splashes of white, fit perfectly - I don't think I've ever gotten as many complements as I did later that evening. Here's to another successful morning... on the cheap.
