Auction Deals

Andrew and I went to a local auction last Saturday and got some great deals! I think my favorite buy had to be for the kitchen. I bought a dozen square and rectangle glass storage containers (all but one with lids) for only $11.50!

Why am I so excited about that? Well, I will tell you. I have several other glass containers, but they are all round and most of them are larger (2 qt.). These are smaller, so I can use them for some of my smaller leftovers/sides. Also, they stack so much better on the shelves or in the refrigerator. So, it conserves a lot of space. (which is much needed in my small kitchen!)

I also bought a cardioglide exercise machine for $2, a really nice green quilt with white flowers for $2, a new tea kettle for $2 and a lot more! And, the stuff I got that I don't really want? Well, that will go in our next garage sale to make up for the money I spent. Isn't great! I absolutely love auctions!

Those glass containers are great - much healthier than plastic, too, since they won't leach chemicals into your food.

And BTW - our kitchen is about half the size of yours! :-o

I'd be afraid to go to an action. I would probably buy way too much stuff thinking, "Well, I'm getting a bargain." then end up spending $100! LOL!

You did really well at the auction. I love auctions, but haven't been for a long time. I was just thinking about those glass containers you bought earlier today and wishing I had some. When I was small both my grandmother and my Aunt Maimie had some. They are refrigerator dishes. I've been trying to incorporate into my life some of the things we used to do before all the plastics and disposables.

Looks like you and I are both into bargain hunting... I just posted a blog about some of the things I've gotten recently on my yard-sale adventures. ;)
