$20 And A Yard Sale

 Do you like yard sales?

I do.

Here's why:

I spent $20 at Walmart a week or so ago for this:
Swimming Vest for my son Levi

I spent $20 at a yard sale yesterday for this:

Swimming Vests for Levi
and Lillie

and some shoes...

good brands...

barely worn...

(this pair also,
that needed to be worn right away)...

and some dresses for Lillie...

Thanksgiving dress...

more dresses with leggings...

and outfits, too....

cute shirts
(nothing stained or torn in any of the clothes)...

and some fun books and videos

socks for Levi...

short-sleeved shirts with sharks
and bugs
for Levi,
of course...

and some long sleeved ones...

a Christmas gift for one of the girls
to be stored in the attic...

and some fun new toys for hours of summer play...

Looks like I'll be making a return to Walmart.

  1. Fantastic....what a haul that was...well done to you...we have both the toys you bought, the fairy tree and horse and the matchbox mega boat with shark...both have been well loved at our home...and hopefully will get passed onto other children when my family are older.....yep, gotta love a yard sale...

  2. WOW! That is awesome! Happy mom=happy kids:)

  3. WOW !!! good job. Give that family your phone # for future sales

  4. Awesome deals! I love garage sales, yard sales, rummage sales, church sales, thrift shops it is the BEST way to go and save money! Wal-mart 'aint got nothin' over thrifting!

  5. Yes, I love a bargain! Many of my treasures come from yardsales.

  6. WOW. You scored BIG!!

    (couldn't have happened to a nicer person)


  7. Oh this post made me smile - all the memories of when my girls were young and we would do the "hunting" on early saturday mornings! You made an excellent "haul" !!!

    Thank you for reminding me of good memories by sharing your goodies with us!!

  8. I love yard sale finds! My husband and I go every Saturday! I always call it being environmentally responsible, too. Secretly, though, I think it's the fun of the hunt!

  9. Holy Cow. See, if I could find those deals, I would like garage sales too . . .but I go and there is absolutly nothing!!!

  10. Oh my gosh! You made a killing! And there you go with the little girls shoes again. Now you are killing me.

  11. Thanks for your fun comments!! I have to admit, it was an unusually great yard sale: I hit lots of yardsales that don't have what I need, or the opposite: too much of what I already have - JUNK! :)

  12. Wow! Great job at the yard sale, I love finding things I actually NEED at those sales! Yep, usually they just have a bunch of junk I don't need!

    I love making up a list of what I need when I go to garage sales, it can help keep me from getting distracted.

  13. I think I need to go to yard sales with you! LOL I never find such GREAT deals! You did aweseome! Make that return!! LOL Stopping by from HHH!

  14. I love YARD SALES! I need to get out, they have them here in Hawaii ALL THE TIME! Most of my kids clothes are yard sales, and a lot of their toys as well! Love it! Hopping over from HHH


I love your comments!
