Fun Finds

Yes, I am still on vacation... and I'm blogging again!  It's addicting.  I really need one of those cute new shirts that TBA is selling!

Anyways, back to my fun finds.  Let me just say that garage sales in my hometown ROCK!!  The Goodwill stores are also like a gold mine!  Below are just a couple of the treasures I found while making my rounds yesterday....

I have never seen index cards like these before!  The use for index cards is endless so I thought these would be great because of their writing lines.  I'm still trying to figure out what I will use them for, but for $1, I couldn't pass them up.  Any ideas?

I got this game at Goodwill for only $3... it is awesome!!  It's called Zingo.  It is basically a Bingo game, but with a twist.  It comes with 8 player cards (double-sided... green is easier and red is more competitive).  To play you move the dispenser forward and then backward and it spits out two yellow tiles.  The first player to call out the word (and that has that word on their card) gets the tile.  The first player to fill their card is the winner.  What I like most about this game is that it has the picture and the word, so even my non-readers should be able to look at the picture and identify it while still seeing the word written.
(Here is a link to buy it at Amazon: Zingo- Bingo with a Zing!  The other games on there by this company look great, too!) 

I got other great deals on some games and books, too!  I love a good bargain!!  I'm still trying to figure out how all of these things are going to fit in my suitcases.  I'm considering abandoning the game boxes and retrieving them on a future trip home when I drive!

  1. I went to a garage sale today and totally thought of you! Andhow weird is it that my captcha was "zings"!!

  2. Great finds! I'm going to try to hit my goodwill store this week to see what I can find too! I'll be on the look out for those index cards. Love your blog!!

  3. A decent place to begin to guarantee that you will get an awesome arrangement is to check your credit report. You need to look here first since it will surely affect the financing cost you will get on your advance. cash advance
