It's garage sale season! I love garage sale season! There are so many great buys to be had. You just never know quite what you might get in this treasure hunt.
I must confess this is one of last year's treasures. However, it was late in the year and I never set it up until now. My husband and I go camping every year. We go wilderness camping and so we canoe to get to our spot, which means tent camping only. We have been using a 3 man dome tent for years. Just last year, I thought we should upgrade and I began to think about it. Shortly, I found this like new nine man tent for $20.00! It has two rooms in it which I think we will like a lot. One room can have the sleeping bags and the other, a little area with table and chairs to stay away from mosquitoes and rain! (The cat did not come with the tent, he just wanted to pose for the photo shoot. :))
It also came with a free like new rubber mallet for pounding in stakes! It does seem that almost any time we need something, I can find it at a garage sale. The key is going regularly (which I have gotten lazier about in recent years) and patience. Knowing you will likely find what you need can keep you from running out and buying it.
Happy savings AND happy garage saling! :)
