I’ve done a lot more Thrift store shopping than garage saling in the past (I do however stop whenever I see a sign! ;). But I’ve actually started planning out my trips now and find that you get much better bargains at garage sales than thrift stores. Our garage sale season will be ending soon, so I try to make an effort now to go every Saturday at least.
Most of my garage sale finds now are for online resale and you’d be surprised at how much extra $ you can make by doing so.
Here are my recent finds. I have lots more, but just haven’t taken any photos.
See that Little Einsteins rocket? I put that puppy up on Ebay right away. I bought it for $3..and here’s how much I sold it for:

The books above are for my kids. At $.25 each, I thought why not. Although I have to even spend that when we can get them for free at the library. But sometimes my kids love to read then over and over…so it’s nice to have a few of your own. And I am in LOVE with the My America books. I love reading those..not only so my kids can get an idea of what life was like in earlier America, but also because I love reading them and learning about it as well.
The Food Saver bags are also for home and 1 pair of shoes that I bought for myself. Everything else is for resale! I ♥ garage sales!
Today I’m linking up with Cap Creations, Discovery Street and Apron Thrift Girl.
