One thing about me, I LOVE finding deals on different items. I also love to get rid of clutter that I don't need nor want anymore.

The first thing that comes to mind? Of course, garage sale.

There is something to be said for those weekend warriors who plot out a map and a plan every Saturday and Sunday just to hit as many sales as possible. I tried it once, and I did not succeed in sticking to my plan.

Maybe I just got sidetracked or got tired of jumping from place to place. I can tell you the few I did make it to, I found some cool stuff at bargain prices. I just wish I would've had the motivation to stick to it.

As my kids' baseball season starts to come to a close, I'll find myself with some spare time on the weekends to burn. I kind of want to give garage hopping another shot, but I want to build up some capital first so I can maximize it.

So how do I do that? Well, I should probably have a garage sale of my own right? My big question is this. How successful have YOUR garage sales been? What stuff has a tendency to sell the best and what kind of pricing do I put those things at to where it just flies off the proverbial shelf?

When we moved here over a year ago, we brought a bunch of stuff with us that we probably could've just left behind. In fact, we did leave some stuff behind that I wish we would've brought with us, but we ran out of room in the truck.

I want to make sure that if/when we move again, we don't have a truck filled to every inch possible. So, if I have a garage sale, will you come? What are you looking for? What do you typically buy at a garage sale when you go? In the words of Jerry Maguire, "help me, help you". Buy my stuff so I can buy other people's stuff!

Drop a comment below and tell me what you want to see at my garage sale. I'll hunt around and see if I've got it for ya.

Can You Guess These Towns From Their Satellite Photos?

I'm always down for a good brain challenge. This one however got the best of me.
It's always a fun time looking up address or cities and seeing them from a satellite point of view. You start pointing out landmarks and things you recognize.

One thing you don't account for however is something looking bigger or smaller than you seemed to think it was. So we started grabbing a bunch of these satellite pictures of cities and towns around Amarillo.

As we looked at them, we thought to ourselves, "how fun would this be to actually have to GUESS what these places are?". So away we went.

Go ahead and try to see how many you can guess correctly!
