#5 Second Weekend in June

I love the second weekend in June. It's the weekend Brad and I go to Liberty Lake, Washington to visit his family but that's not all. On this particular weekend the community of Liberty Lake has yard sales. There are usually between 200 to 300 on the same day. It's the only way to do yard sales. Over the years we've worked out a system.

Friday: we go out to find anything that could be out. (This only takes a few hours because the sales don't "officially" start until Saturday morning.)

Saturday: We are out the door by 8:00 am to get the hot items then spend the rest of the day looking and picking out smaller items then comes 4:00 o'clock. 4:00 is free stuff time. People are done for the day and start leaving out boxes of free stuff. It's so nice to get a good deal but free stuff is always fun.

This year our best purchases were:
1. A DVD player for the car $1.00 (Yes ONE DOLLAR and it works perfectly!)
2. A Dining room table with 6 chairs $175.00

Other items:
1. A pile of cute clothes for little Mildew
2. A jogging stroller
3. A Camel back
4. Wooden puzzles
5. Books
6. Disney Movies/DVDs
7. A Magazine rack
8. Games
