Friday's Finds.

This is my favorite yard sale weekend of the entire summer!

My mother in law, Marion & I went out this morning for a sneak peak and here is what I found:

King size comforter set from JC Penneys - $20
Eddie Bauer clock - $4
Spice cabniet organizer - $0.50
Box of 15 working solar lights - $8

For Ronnie:  3 long sleeve shirts, 3 short sleeve shirts, 3 pants, 3 sweaters
1 boys hoodie
2 girl abercrombie sweaters
And below:  Old navy sweater, gap hoodie, abercrobmie sweater, old navy pants, shirt & sweater, denim skirt w/ shorts under it and brown leggings and stripped shirt.

All of these clothes for $2.  Total. 

I also picked up two pairs of crocs for me for $1 each, one purse and one bag ($1 for both) to use for our towels when we go swimming this summer.

Total spent for today:  $37.50.

A couple of hints for yard sales.

If you planning on buying more than one item, see if you can get a better deal. Sometime it works, sometimes it doesn't. Either way, be respectful of their decision.

Try to take small bills with you. 

I only buy clothes or shoes that I can wash with hot water in the washer.  Especially shoes.  This really applies to just about anything fabric for me.

Think about others when possible.  Today, I could get all the clothes that fit in a kitchen size garbage bag for $2.  Ronnie's stuff only filled up half the bag.  I filled the other half up with girls clothes for my friends with girls.  I was paying $2 either way - why not pass on a blessing.

Tomorrow there are lots of choices locally for yard sales. 

Grab a newspaper and the Bulletin Board and get going.

See you there!
