Recently I have been doing a lot of "garage-saling" in my area. The past three weekends I have gone through Craigslist and found listings for garage sales that are really close to my home, went by the bank and withdrew $20 from the ATM and then went to town. You’d be surprised at how much you can buy at garage sales for only $20. What’s even better is these people usually really want to get rid of the stuff they are trying to sell so they are willing to negotiate. I have seen some awesome stuff recently, too. From old sewing machines to antique dressers to classic guitar amps. One person was even selling a wooden leg! I really don’t know what anyone would want with a wooden leg, but it’s still kind of cool. My favorite things to look for at garage sales is paperback books. Often times I can find some really good books for about $.25 a piece. That’s a steal!
I’m sure by now everyone is familiar with the tragedy that struck Oklahoma. The devastating tornado has left many people homeless, injured and dead. In the midst of such a tragedy, this heart warming story is one that will make you feel good.. or at least it made me feel good. This woman was talking about her lost dog and while being interviewed by a reporter, her dog was spotted under the rubble.
One of my favorite websites on the internet is a website called Post Secret. I happened upon this website many years ago and from the first time I saw it, I was addicted. Post Secret is a website where people anonymously send in their deepest, darkest secrets, usually they are written on postcard prints and then the owner of Post Secret posts these anonymous secrets on the website. New secrets are posted every Sunday. Post Secret has become so popular that they also have books of the secrets that can be purchased. I want them, but I don’t have the money to buy them right now. They’re for sale on Amazon.
