Yard Sale Finds: Under $20!
Even though I sort of consider myself a yard sale aficionado, I haven't had a lot of time this summer to make the rounds of yard sales. Both of my kids are growing, though, and I always like to have clothes for the upcoming season in larger sizes so I don't have to go and -- gasp -- buy clothes at retail prices.
So Mason and I ventured out this morning to three sales, and I was thrilled with the bargains we found! I did make sure to stick to my Yard Sale Rules, however. I did recon on Craigslist ahead of time, all three sales had children's clothes in my target sizes, and all the sales were within two miles of my house.
Here's what I scored -- spending only $19 for the whole lot!
From Left to Right:
- Top Row: two turtleneck sweaters for me -- $1 each
- Middle Row: Poetry for Children Book, Grandkids frame, 6 hardcover books on various topics (baking, herbs, etc)
- Bottom Row: 3 pairs toddler girls' jeans; 4 winter sleepers, 3 long sleeve shirt
All in all, I purchased 20 items and spent $19.
As a reward for Mason's awesome behavior, I spent $.99 extra on a day-old pastry from our favorite bagel place on the way home -- which brought the day's total to $19.99. The pastry didn't make it into the picture. :)
