Sale-ing through yards

I've had heaps of fun yard sale-ing the last two days, but I'm telling you, it makes a body tired. For those who know me, you know I'm not a shopper. I like to go in get what I want and come out. No wandering around the store for hours on end for this girl. However, I do enjoy browsing (quickly) through clearance aisles and yard sales. I know what I'm looking for and it doesn't take me long to discover if it is there or not. Most of what I've been looking for wasn't in anybody's yard this time. There's always tomorrow!

Some treasures I came home with: a great little dresser kind of thing, a "walkman" for little Bethany (she's been listening to the Chronicles of Narnia Radio Theatre for hours!), a pair of shoes for baby boy--for the fall/winter, some homeschool books and a frying pan that I hope will work better than the one I have now.

The dresser needs refinished. I have no idea what I'm doing, but it seems like a fun summer project. I'll have to do some research before I delve into that! Sounds like some before/after pictures will be in order.

All in all I spent less than $20. I was extremely picky about what I bought, after all, I just spent 30 days purging the school room and another two months purging the rest of the house! I do NOT need to bring more junk into the house.

You'll be glad to hear that my Hunny and I organized the storage room last night! It was unplanned, but we both dug in and hauled away a van FULL of discarded items. Yahoo!
Now only our room remains...I know there is stuff in there that I don't need/use. Hopefully next week I'll get that done.
