I really like to shop at garage sale because I find a lot of stuff that cost me very cheap. I ever got mango top for $1, dkny bag for $2, cupboard for $10 & guess jeans for $12 its really really become smart deal for me since my salary can not afford me to buy branded clothes but I do like fashion a lot, since then I try to hunt for garage sale. once there's one International school made garage sale, I have been there too and I got $0,25 for tie in aramis and when they want to close the garage sale they gave me a pair of nine west shoes for free. do you have some experience with me, you may also share in here.

I try and stay away from garage sales only for the simple reason that I tend to buy more books... and I don't need anymore books! And my kids buy toys they don't use. They are 10 and 14 and beyond playing with toys. I did get them some skates at one though. I also got two unused pair of dress shoes for $2 each at a garage sale. Best part is that I get a lot of wear out of them. I went to the Salvation Army store last week and got my daughter a t-shirt for $1.49, myself two shirts for $1.99 each, and a sundress for $6.00. I should go to the Salvation Army store more often.

I shop all the time at the Salvation Army store in my area. This one helps people in need with the money they make and I like that. I have found some great pieces of clothing, and furniture for next to nothing.

I love to go to garage sales, thrift stores, and flea markets! I find all my sons clothes, and mine and my husbands there, except for undergarments. But, they always seem to have name brand clothes for dirt cheap. I also have bought my coffee table, end tables, dining room tables and a couple of chairs at garage sales and saved a bundle on furniture.

I love yard sales, garage sales, and flea markets. Also second hand stores are great too (like the Goodwill and Salavation Army). Recently I went to a yard sale and was able to get an office chair on wheels for $.25 and a HUGE bag of clothes for the kids for $2.00 and in that bag were brand names, Osh Kosh, Old Navy, Liz Clayborne, Gloria Vanderbuilt, The Limited and others. Trying to buy clothes for 3 kids gets expensive so these sales are necessary.

I like looking at yard sales to and sometimes flea markets. You can find a lot of good deals at them sometimes. Also at second hand clothes stores. I use to work for Good Will a few years back we would sometimes get brand new clothes that would come in from stores that closed down. I actully got a brand new woman's vest for like 3.00.

I love garage sales and flea markets also. There is one local business in the area that donates all their old unsold product to a church and they have a huge garage sale. Everything is 25 cents, but you can also purchase a bag full for like $2! It is the best sale around!

I love flea markets and yard sales too - although I mostly shop for my children. It's great finding baby clothes for $1 or less, since babies don't wear them long enough to wear them out. I love finding books there, too - can't have too many!
