GARAGE SALES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Last weekend was "baby day" in our neighborhood and everyone was selling their old baby stuff. The neighborhood didn't plan it that way but somehow it turned out to be the best garage sale day ever! My neighbor came knocking on my door Saturday morning and told me I needed to get my booty out of bed and get shopping. I begged and begged Ben to get in the car with me and drive around the neighborhood. After much resistance he agreed to drive me around and listen to me freak out at each garage sale we came to. Here is all the stuff we scored!!!
Baby swing
Ben practing fatherhood in our new umbrella stoller.
My FAVORITE purchase! This bassinet is like 5 things in one! It's a bassinet, changing table, rocker, it plays music, and vibrates. The lady who owned it still had all the new stickers on it along with the instruction manual and all!
Barely used car seat for Ben's car
Stroller / Carseat combo
Butterfly play mat....I bought this with Carrie in mind! Maybe I'll sacrifice this one and mail it to her!

As you can tell...I am a true Bell at heart. I just kept thinking how proud Aunt Barb would be of me and all my good deals! When we got back home Ben said to me, "I'm sure glad your not one of those girls that has to have brand new everything!" I'm all about a good deal! I also scored a highchair and a playpen. Here is the real kicker...I got all of this for about $100!!!

Good going Bell girl! I wish I had been with you. Did you hyperventilate like Barb does when she finds a good deal?

That is an awesome price! Now you can use all the rest of that money you would have spent on DIAPERS!!! Start saving...so glad to hear that all is well.

Wow, good job, Kami. Maybe we all need to come to Hawaii and go to garage sales.

Nice! That is the way to do it! I am always looking at the classifieds. Unfortunatley, there is no garage sales in the winter here

Becklett said...

Yes, but did you walk into someone's garage and start looking around when they weren't having a sale?? :)
Awesome! Wish I could've been there with you! Miss you!

That is the CUTEST bassinet I've ever seen! I heard through a few grapevines that you're pregnant, congratulations! Nice to know where I can check up on you two.

Some friends are planning a trip to Oahu sometime this spring so I'll be sure to let you know if it pans out. It would be great to see you!
