Now I'm Cookin'!

OK, everybody, It's time to join
Debbiedoos, I Love Livin in the Carolinas
Garage Salen

Where people are encouraged to show off their thrift store/garage sale/estate sale/rummage sale/junk sale/flea market/swap meet finds.

Of course, I like to be different, so while everyone else shows off the cool thing they got for a nickle, I am going to show some of my neat freebie finds.

I just discovered that Debbie is on vacation this week. We could have a party at her place without her I suppose, that way when she gets back she would find empty pizza boxes all over the furniture, but I suppose that wouldn't be very nice.

So, don't head over to her party, but I already posted this before I realized it, so it satays.

I have mentioned before that I am not above a bit of Dumpster Diving, Curb Crawling, or Pile Picking if I see something that catches my eye, and I have shown off a few treasures in the past. They aren't truly garage sale bargains, because I never pay a cent, but they are treasures none the less, and you can't beat free when it comes to a good deal!

So here is another great Find!

Recently, while tossing our trash in the dumpster, I noticed a sleeping bag, all rolled up. Now, generally, even though I know it can be cleaned, bedding is kind of a creepy thing to pull from a dumpster, at least in my book, so I was just going to ignore it, but a little voice told me to look closer. I did and lo and behold, it was rolled up around this beauty:

The sleeping bag stayed in the dumpster, it was in pretty rough shape anyway, so I didn't feel too bad, but this came home with me.

Right now they are selling brand new for anywhere from $59.99 at WalMart, to $109.00 at the big dollar special sportsman stores.

This one looks like it has been used once or twice at the most.

Be sure and join me each Tuesday for Tuesday Trivia Tie-in, where readers are invited to share trivia and show off their treasures.
