Yard Sale Fun

My friend, Kay, and I went yard saleing (is that a word?) today. We found out about 2 sales in Orlando that advertised yarn.
We found them! The first one had crochet thread; we got 45 spools (?) for $35; this is my half.
The next one had two bags of yarn, about 14 skeins plus a double ended crochet hook (does anyone know how to use one of those?). This is my half; we spent $18 for all of it.
After those two, we drove around for several more hours, stopping whenever we saw a sign. These are the rest of my yard sale treasures:
A shirt for Tim - 25 cents
Wii game - $5, a book for Hope - $1, a rose shaped candy dish - $1
two DVDs - $2 each, a DSI game for Hope - $10, a Bugs Bunny paper punch - $1
Bookshelf - $3, a Shark steam mop with 5 cleaning pads - $25
Box full of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock - $1

We had a great time! After getting home about 2:00, I cleaned the house a little, made dinner and am settling in for a nice relaxing evening. Hope is having fun playing her new games and Tim is making a floor for Sugar's kennel (he picked up a truckload of lumber at a yard sale for $50!). 
I hope your Saturday has been as enjoyable as ours :-)
