Lego déjà vu!

Yesterday my son and I were on our way home from the doctor's office when I decided to pull into a garage sale.  When the kids were younger, I used to garage sale all the time.  I could always find great kids' clothes and toys for pennies on the dollar. Over the years, I've not gone to as many.  My schedule is busier, finding clothes for older kids is more difficult, and I really don't *need* anything.  However, I always love a good bargain and still try to get my bargain hunting fix in on occasion.

We pulled up and this particular one and all I saw was a bunch of junk.  My son, however, found his garage sale dream - a box of Legos with some miscellaneous toys mixed in.  My son loves Legos.  Even better, he loves digging through them and finding "rare" pieces. This box had potential and was sure to have some treasures. It wasn't marked with a price, my son asked what they wanted for it. "$5," was the answer.  Sold!

As soon as I snapped this picture, I had a flashback.  What started this whole Lego obsession was the best garage sale find *ever* when I discovered an 18-gallon tub plus a 10-gallon container full of Lego sets for only $20 for both, an unbelievable deal for hundreds dollars worth of Legos! Here's the picture snapped way back when with just a portion of our find.

It has been seven years since our first big Lego find.  However, I think he looks just as happy now as he did back then, don't you?

What a deal! My daughter is crazy about legos and hoping for some for Christmas. Wish I could find a deal like that. I am having a giveaway this week that you might be interested in. Come by and take a peek if you have a chance.
