For as long as I can remember, my family has called me "Garage Sale Woman". I have read folks now call it Junkin'. I got a steal on a wooden bookcase that is almost identical to what we have. (DH doesn't give away any books..so our bookcases keep growing.) A tall bookcase, like new $30, and a new summer dress and new blouse. Oh yes, a craft table lamp $5 ! I just love it when I get a good deal.
(Notice the boy's look on his face. That is about the same look I got when DH drove up with the truck to pick up the bookcase I found. I just have to love him!)
