We love a good garage sale

 I know we've mentioned that we have a love for garage saling..but I just wanted to share what we got at our most recent trip for Siena for $6.
  • 4 shirts (1 still had the tag)
  • 1 puffy coat in great condition
  • 5 books(2 Olivia books, 2 Dr Seuss books, and 1 Eric Carle book that had 7 books inside it!)
  • 1 sun hat
  • 2 sets of pj's
  • 1 dress
  • 1 pair of shorts
 I love when you find a few great garage sales. We use a website called (the app is the best!). You can go through and click on each garage sale and see what they posted about it to see if it's something you would be interested in.  Then you can either click the X(this makes them transparent so you know you don't want to go to it), or the little save button(they turn purple so you know which ones are good), and then we map our route the night before. 

Last weekend we got 2 benches that we re-finished and just put some new fabric on them, but we had to paint one of them because it had some purple paint on it. Here is the finished product:

Pretty darn cute! If we had some more extra space I would definitely be keeping one of them!


  1. You guys are so good at garage sales! I love seeing all the treasures you find. Miss you guys! :)

  2. So jealous of your awesome book find! Sav would LOVE more Olivia books :) It seems like by the time things get to a garage sale around here it has been well used...I mean loved...

  3. Good for you! I love that you are frugal and really smart! Cute things for baby boo!
