The Deal of the Century

On Saturday, Eric and I dropped the girls off at their mom's house after they finished helping clean up at the fairgrounds. We went to town afterwards and had lunch. Eric wanted to run into Rural King before grocery shopping to pick up some weed killer. While he was in the store, I did what we all do... scrolled through Facebook. Haha
While I was scrolling, I came across a county garage sale posting (do you all belong to those groups on FB? Ugh... clutters my feed!) that I knew Eric would just HAVE to get. So, I messaged the girl and told her the dilemma, that we were shopping a few towns away and it would be almost 2 hours before we could get there, but could she PLEASE hold it for us. And she agreed! Woohoo!

So.... what did we get? And why was it the deal (maybe I should say steal) of the century?

You be the judge!

That's right friends! We're the proud new owners of 3 (yes, three) weight benches plus a treadmill...

For the grand prize of $25!!!!!

Eric has been dying to get a Bowflex and that beaut on the right is a genuine bowflex. The one of the left cracks me up because my parents had the exact same weight bench in our basement while I was growing up. All the pieces for all 3 machines were included. When we got there, she asked if we wanted a treadmill she had and she threw it in for free. SCORE!

So, we hauled it home and unloaded it. Everything is currently in the barn until our new pole barn gets built, but for that price, we really couldn't resist the deal. One of my coworkers husband's was jealous and offered me double just for the Bowflex. Haha We are looking forward to having a little home gym to use in the somewhat near future (fingers crossed).
