The Neighbors’ Spring Cleaning Comes to My Benefit
These bright signs pop up on every street corner in Marquette
Spring cleaning uncovers all sorts of stuff. Thrown into the basement for a reason, that cabinet has absolutely no use. While I would love to say that I spent a few hours cleaning out my basement and hosting a garage sale, that is simply not the case. Instead, I cruised around town early on a Saturday morning looking for deals on items that I didn’t need.
You may have to dig a little to find what you are looking for…
Wading through bookshelves and strollers, I searched my way to the back of each sale before moving on to the next, unsatisfied. I have been on the search for a cheap bass guitar for the past 6 months and I felt especially lucky that day.
Finishing up with a sale a few doors down, I walked back home lugging a three foot long red bag. Nope, I didn’t find my bass… I have more of a talent for finding things that I am not looking for. A good example of this would be a volleyball net. I bought a volleyball net. Do I know how to play volleyball? No – I guess it’s time to learn! Even if it’s just a cheese grater, I have never failed to find something exciting from a morning of garage sale shopping.
Time to try out volleyball!
