busy as a bee

okay maybe not THAT busy . . . but the time sure does slip away doesn't it?? no bargain hunting this weekend - we're preparing for our own garage sale, and depending on the weather tomorrow i hope it happens. if not . . then i'll be at the goodwill .. .where everything in the store will be 50% off (first sat of the month)!! make a note to check it out yourself!

now on to this cute little guy. found him at the goodwill outlet a few months back. so cute, so broken, so much potential! 

now i know i shouldn't post a before picture without an after picture . . but i'm still in the process of transforming him. just wanted you to know i am doing SOMETHING around here :) 

and since we couldn't spend money bargaining this weekend i decided to make a little money instead. 

found this crib at a garage sale for $5 . .it was taken apart and they didn't have the hardware for it. basically it sat in our house a little too long and my dear sweet husband took it to ace, picked up the hardware, put it together and i sold it on craigslist for $35. thank you cl for always coming through for me :)

and lastly since i like to add things to my "to do" list . .. i'm thinking of taking up couponing!! apparently that's not a real word but either way janae over at The Grocery Queen has totally inspired me. (and's she having a fun little giveaway so check it out) . . just scroll through her blog and you can't help but be amazed at how much FREE food she gets from clipping coupons. seriously your jaw will drop! if i was still in arizona i'd make her take me shopping every week :)
