…you begin to know the names the other *regulars* in your town.
…your mother announces she’s having a garage sale on your birthday and invites everyone over for the celebration–at the garage sale
…you give up your Saturday morning sleep-in because there’s a sale starting at 6 a.m. that you can’t miss
…your Friday nights are spent mapping out your Saturday morning plan of attack.
…your kids point out houses where their favorite outfits came from
…you see the dude in the truck that always beats you to the good deals and you floor it to try and race him to the next house
…you perspire at a department store when you have to buy something that’s more than a dollar.
…you come home with five baskets, three candle holders, and two picture frames that you don’t need.
…you tell everyone who walks in your house how much you got each piece of furniture for, and recall the wonderful moment you found them in someone’s driveway.
