Danyel-

You must have run into one of those major "couponers". they trade/swap coupons on websites like Mycoupons.com.. get the items either free or for pennies, then have yardsales and make money on them.

Nothing wrong with that... it's a win/win for both buyer and seller. I did that one year when I went crazy getting bunches of coupons for free Dove deoderant and put some of it in my yard sale for .50 cents each... I still get some ladies who stop by every summer asking if I have anymore deals like that.

I had a really good day yesterday and only spent about $7.00. Then today I spent $2.00 at another sale.


I got 2 towel with crochet tops to hang in the kitchen--for my mother

1 small heart placque that says "Grandma You are Loved" on it

1 pair of jean shorts for DS

1 pair of lightweight blue pants for next school year

1 flannel jacket for DS for Fall

1 dress sweater for my mother

2 sundresses and a bikini for my DD

a box of childrens books for $2.00 ---it had 69 books ( finally decided to count them instead of guessing. I was way off guessing at about 40 ) in it that are in good enough shape for him to keep!! Some are even from my childhood.

7 other books including 2 of Mercer Mayers "Critters" books

a pedal racecar for him --not sure what the real name is for this--it looks like an Indy racecar but it has pedals

a push along garbabe truck for DD that picks up blocks

a small Little Tikes tractor and trailer

a musical carry-around piano for both of the kids--DS plays it and DD dances--so cute!!!

Hi gang..

Last weekend we had bunches of fun yard saling too!

Memin and I got a hedge trimmer in excellent condition for $8
He found loads of name brand shirts and shorts at $.50 GREAT church shirts!
I found clothes for bigger women that are great. Two dresses, a skirt set, 2 overall shorts...I think no more than $6-8 and these clothes look near new!
Bought some periennial plants at $.50 a container...(hostas, cats and kittens...few others)
Got a Christmas idea book with recipies and craft ideas for $1.50
A TIGGER cup ;-) for $2.00 ( it is my favorite though...a bit high but I bet brand new it was expensive! HUGE for coffee and so cute!)
An older solid double garden hoe that is great $2.00

Can't think of the other stuff but we had a blast! LOVE my hedge trimmer. A while back we also found a wonderful gasoline weed wacker for $10 and it is great!

I BREAK FOR YARD/GARAGE SALES!!!

Cathy, You found some great things too! One thing I rarely come across is plus size women's clothes.

What are cats and kittens? Are they what we call hens and chicks? little plants that have thick leaves and can practically live in anything---what a description, huh? Can you tell Im not a gardener?


Speaking of hedge trimmers, thats what we are going to be doing today. The bushes around our house need to be trimmed so bad!!


Have a great day everyone!!

Gosh-

You are all finding great stuff. I went to one yard sale this weekend and it had already been wiped out, nothing but junk left and the folks didn't look too clean even though it was a nicer neighborhood. They had stuff laid out on the ground... I don't like that having to bend over to look at something closer. I really wanted to have ours at least this next weekend but dh said he needs to cut his mom's hedges and I need a cashier so... it is not looking too good having a sale his mom used to help me with mine but she is so hard of hearing that it just doesn't work out well anymore.

I wear one of those aprons that has the pockets for roofers... and I keep my money with me... I am my own cashier...
I do my sales myself...except getting my ds moving things out of the garage and helping me putting things back...

of coure I know some likes the help and feel they can't do both,

Bar_bar-

There's a couple reasons I use a cashier. Columbus is a huge metropolitan city and there are alot of hustler's out there. They do things like say "Hey I gave you a $20.00 not a $10.00", they keep you occupied while their partner steals something. I've had them ask to pay for an item in food stamps. One yard saler I talked to said these people came up in a van and parked down the street. The girl ask if she could try out the bike he had for sale, drove it down the street, threw it in the van and took off! So it pays to have a second person around to pay attention to what's happening around you.
