Saturday Morning Dates


For the past two summers, Saturday mornings have been our time together going garage sale hunting. I have never been one to do this before but now it is become quite a strategic set-up. On Friday mornings I will look online & find all the sales for Saturday & then I organize them by area. I quickly send the list to Kirk who continues the organization by picking out the ones that we would like (i.e. ones that have no Baby items for sale!) & then he maps out the sales with an optimal driving route. I know this seems like a great deal of work but it has proven to be worth the effort! Over the past two summers we have found some amazing deals: brand new workout equipment, a brand new chair massager, an old table that I painted and made amazing (only $15!), books, jewelery, a fur stole, camping supplies, high quality cookware, & much more! So you never know what may be around the next corner...or garage in this case!

Hi Lynne & Kirk,

I think Lynne learned some great garage sale "techinques" from Dave when she was in Naples. There is a funny story there! You really can find fabulous treasures! Have fun bargain hunting!

Love, Janet
