Thrifty Tuesday - Garage sale treasure

There are definitely certain garage sales that worth checking out.  This past weekend we decided to go to a couple of places with our friends from Kelowna to check out two golf course community that were having their multi-homes garage sale.  We started early to make sure we get to pick the best items they were selling.  Jeff and I have an idea of what we are looking for and what price we are willing to pay.  There's a bit of bargaining but also you have to really know your prices for certain items.  After checking a few homes in one community, we moved on to the next community and found some more great deals.  Here's some of the stuff that we found that we needed for our home.  Some are for decorations and others are for the kitchen.  It's fun doing garage sales some weekend but it's also important to just buy because they are cheap.  We have our list of items we need and we stick with that plan.  This weekend was even more fun because we went with our friends.  After the hunting we went for lunch and stop by a couples of stores for a little more shopping.  It was a very productive Saturday morning.  Do you like going to garage sales?
