MTS and garage sales...

Somebody tie me down, there are tanks for sale at some garage sales this weekend. I check the paper almost every week to see what people are selling and this weekend there's a 40 gal in one town and a 50 nearby as well... Didn't say how much but most people don't as for much at the yard sales around here... I really can't afford anything and don't have anywhere to put them but I can't help but go look... but if I go look then I might not be able to help buying either.... Somebody stop me.............

I got a complete 10gal setup, Tank, filter, heater, hood, lightstrip and bulb for 5 dollars at a yard sale, became my male bettas tank.

Hehe.


My two favorite types of Garage sales.

The one where the person dosn't know what they have because they're selling it for a friend.

And the " Wife is going to kill me if I don't get this *blip* thing out of the house " sales.


You can get awesome deals at both.


In other words, how can you NOT afford it Milli?


By buying them so cheap, Your SAVING MONEY!

HEHE

U know you could buy them for 1 price and sell them for another price. If you enjoy yardsale buying then you could turn a small profit. Or you could turn them into breeding tanks or plant growing tanks or something like that.

The rope will aid in tying even more tanks to your car as you go around from sale to sale buying them all up.

This really makes me laugh at our insanity.

I bought 2 20gal tanks last month at our local meeting. Paid $3.00 each for them, and one was drilled. . They're still sitting in a corner of my garage. I have no idea where or what I'll do with them.
