I make it a habit to shop for used stuff as much as I can. Not only does it make me feel like a good person when I save stuff from a landfill, it also works out nicely because I am poor. Well the last two places I went yielded absolute gold! First I went to Stuff, Etc. and found this on the DVD shelves:
Oh heck yes!!! I ADORE the Lizzie McGuire show. I can’t wait to bust this out on a Saturday and have a marathon! Also, I only paid $3.71 for it!
Then yesterday I went to the library book sale while I was home visiting my parents. It was pretty convenient because they live across the street from the library. I wasn’t expecting much because I had been to one of their other sales and was not all that impressed. I literally squealed out loud and embarrassed my sister when I saw this hiding among the videos.
OMG!!! My personal quest in life is to accumulate all of the original Baby-Sitters Club videos. I used to watch them all the time when I was little, but only the ones that my hometown library had….and I don’t think I have ever seen “Jessi and the Mystery of the Stolen Secrets!” I have no doubt that this will change my life…I haven’t watched it yet because my parents don’t have a VCR.
But that is not the end of the story…..a little ways down on the table I found this:
Now my collection includes all of these titles–
Jessi and the Mystery of the Stolen Secrets
Stacey Takes a Stand
Dawn and the Haunted House
Mary Anne and the Brunettes
Dawn and the Dream Boy
Claudia and the Missing Jewels
The Baby-Sitters Special Christmas
So, who’s up for a marathon. Now, just because I can, here are the opening credits from one of the shows to bring back fond memories for all of you (and get that song stuck in your head).
