My name is Brooke, and I am a hoarder. Well, I would be, if someone didn’t keep me in check. Instead, I’ll consider myself a thrifty, bulk saver. My fiance decided this Fall was the perfect time to clean house. The city-wide garage sales were in full force, which meant so were “my people” (you know, fellowContinue reading
