Yes, I am addicted to garage sales. I check the classifieds online and make a map of the sales I want to hit EVERY week. It may be the THRILL of finding unique items or getting a GREAT deal on something I just have to have!!
I have been COLLECTING things for many years now and I want to share this "addiction".

Anytime I find a Scrabble game I pick it up! I love that you can create personalized projects with the 100 tiles that come with each game. Here are some ideas! (at least some of these ideas you can use real tiles).
On this absolutely freezing, cold, snowy day we knew it would be a perfect day to setup the Bounce House and exercise indoors! This has been an amazing garage sale find! I found it for $75 and the previous owners explained that it had never been outside and had only been used in their bonus room above their garage. They mentioned it was perfect for winter days and parties with friends and family. I was SOLD. We have used this so much! It is 9' x 9' and fits in our family room, if I push a couch out of the way. It completely inflates in about 90 seconds and the kids will practice gymnastics for about 20 minutes. They get another 20 minutes later in the day and then it's put away for the day.
We also enjoyed this story matching game. It includes 20 different story sequencing puzzles. The box is marked with a U.S. retail price of $38.85 and I paid $1 at a garage sale. A GREAT DEAL on our educational toys!
I found this great desk with a hutch at Salvation Army for $35. I sanded the whole thing and painted it white. But it is not finished. It needs to be sanded and painted again and a sealer to finish it off. I can't wait to get it finished and put it in my daughter's room. Oh, and I need to find new hardware for the drawers.

I purchased this hand weight for one dollar last summer! I have been using it every morning. It feels so good to stretch to wake up. I started last year with a much smaller weight and I was on the lookout for a heavier weight. I stumbled on this 8 lb bargain!
