The Garage Sale

So I desperately needed (wanted?) a computer. Mine was slower than blue blazes!! But we seriously did not have it in the budget to buy one. I might have been able to scrounge away $2.00 a week but I would be an old woman by the time I had enough money to buy one! A door opened when we had to move my Grandma out of her house. We were going to have a HUGE garage sale, selling all the things that Grandma couldn't or didn't want to take with her. I asked my Aunt if I could bring my own stuff and sell it at the garage sale, as well as help her out. Well, let me tell you, I worked my buns off!! Keeping track of a one year old, being pregnant and dealing with 90 degree heat will make anyone tired!! I wheeled and dealed trying to make the most of my time and make the most money!!! At the end of the day, I had $318 and a LOT of change!!! I walked into Best Buy with a handful of ones,fives,tens, a few twenty's and my big prize, a one hundred dollar bill (from the futon I sold). I even had a bag of change, valued at five dollars!!! So now, I am the proud owner of a lower end NEW laptop! Which is how I was able to start this blog!!!!!!!!!!!
