Thrifty Tip #22: Some thrifty thoughts on garage sales...
*Just because it's a good deal doesn't mean I need to take it home. Wise stewardship...practice it!
*Along the same lines, know what you need, and stick to it. I have a good friend who knows exact sizes and seasons of clothing that she needs for her children. She's focused!
*A more serious note...don't be a jerk to get a bargain! I'm sure we've all seen "that lady" who grabs across the table and snatches the very thing we were picking up just to march it over and ask the host to take a lower price. God has really placed it on my heart that even a garage sale can be a place to act like Jesus Christ--loving others, putting others before ourselves, acting kind, being grateful...think about it! Is a good deal worth ruining a testimony of a loving Savior?
So there you have a few of my garage sale tips!
The word is out that this is a BIG weekend for neighborhood garage sales...thrifty thinking right there!
Have fun and let me know what good deals you find!
