Several years ago, my family was out running errands and came across a neighborhood holding numerous garage sales throughout their community. We decided to drive through and stop at a few.
At the very first sale we stopped at, we spied a gigantic Minnie Mouse before we ever got out of the car. She was just over 3 feet tall, which was taller than my daughter at the time. Stuffed friends this big usually retail for quite a bit, but we decided to ask how much they wanted for this one, which looked completely brand new.
It was $5.
Minnie Mouse came to live in our home. She’s moved with us a few times, living in both Georgia and South Carolina. Now, Minnie Mouse lives in our homeschool room atop our paper storage, keeping an eye on us each and every day.
