The Perfect Sale

With the economy the way it is, everyone needs to stretch that dollar. Things that don't really need to replaced new, like maybe a garden hose, push mower or maybe a cast iron skillet, just to name a few, are things that you can sometime easily find at the neighborhood yard sale. Save a few dollars, don't head out to the retail store. Head for the nearest yard, yard sale that is. You can find a lot of gently used great items for almost pennies on the dollar. Plus maybe meet a neighbor or two you have something's in common with.

I have been a "saler" all my life! I have had them, and been to them. More so in previous years than now.. I just seem to have what i need no matter the price This past summer we had one..my daughter and I...I didn't have much as I had just moved from an Apartment to a house and gave to charity literally everythign I hadn't used in awhile. So I didn't have much to sell..but she did. It bombed out! I couldn't believe it! And our prices were so low for really good stuff...that she had. But I still go to them occassionally. I quilt so I am always looking for fabric and sewing supplies. I don't have kids/grand kids at home or visiting anymore, so dont' need to look for that. The furniture....haven't seen anything really nice in a long time...junk mostly. But I do thrift store shop...there are two in my town and they have 25% off sale one day of the week so I hit it then....it is the last day before they restock or put new things out! Got some good fabric bargains there and some misc pieces of furniture ...yesterday I got another quilt stand...the kind that holds the finished quilt in the living room instead of just having it thrown on the couch. Looks nice with my newly finished quilt on it!

Yes, yard sales/garage sales are a good way to save money. I have gotten my kids clothes for school, kitchen utensils, and bathroom decorations all for less than a dollar. What I really love are estate sales. You can get some great vintage furniture and such for much less and the items are built much better than they do now days.
