My Next Yardsale Challenge

I have a new thing to look for when I go yardsaling. Here's a hint



Jacob gets mesmerized by the Slap Chop commercial Then the other day I ran into Walgreens with him and he stopped in his tracks when he saw the As Seen on TV display and right there was a Slap Chop in real life, for *only* $19.99. You know I won't spend $19.99 - since I know I will find one shortly for $1. Just gotta be patient. I've been seeing those Aquaglobes at yardsales so I know the Slap Chop can't be far behind.

Well I guess I'm not the only one complaining about bird poop at the National Mall - a new supervisor got appointed to overhaul it.

I want one too!! I figure they should hit our Walmart here soon, and then next year I should find some in sales! If you find one, let me know if it really does work!

My 8 year old son wants one of those too! I love when he turns around and tells me "we need that."

Who wouldn't want an item named Slap Chop?! LOL

Just goes to show you that the people who run our lives in Washington didn't even care about how their surroundings looked--too busy voting for wars in far-away countries. You and 30,000 other citizens finally made it happen (with the help of a little Federal stimulus $$$).

I FOUND ONE! I was at a yard sale a couple of months ago and saw one of these from Pampered Chef. I didn't even know how to use the thing until I watched the video on your site. Anyway, it was $1.75, so I bought it just because it was Pampered Chef. I'm glad I know how to use it now!

I read your blog faithfully but have never commented before. I too am a yard sale/garage sale/consignment store/thrift store junkie and I love seeing what you find each week. Keep up the good work on your blog!

Your post made me laugh because my girlfriend and I wanted one badly after watching it at Bed, Bath, & beyond. Well we went to a yard sale the following Saturday and got one unopened for $1 :)

My daughter is obsessed with Aqua Globes! But they are $9.99! No way!

I hope he gets one soon!
