School Yard Sale Preview Deals! Yay!

Today my school's PTO were gathering together donations to the school for our spring yard sale! I looked around because I can't go tomorrow morning as I am going to my mom's house to celebrate her and my husband's Birthdays coming up next week!

They let me purchase a few items! I was and am so excited about my deals, I just had to blog about it! I got a "My Size Elmo" for my son for a dollar, a "Shrek" stuffed toy for a dollar and a nice "Silver Tea Set" that I just found out at home whistles even...for a dollar! I was like wow! Three bucks got me all of that! I really hate I can't go tomorrow (kinda...love Mom too!). I heard that towards the end of the yard sale the let people get a box and fill it up for $5.00 with whatever will go!!! Now that is a deal! It is always a lot of nice things.

So my advice to my readers? Check your local listings on Craigslist.com and newspapers for yard sales for schools, churches, and communities! Tons of stuff! I am excited that Spring is starting to arrive and the Yard Sales are starting to Bloom! :-) YAY!!!! WARM WEATHER IS COMING!

Another great place to pick up deals are local Mothers of Twins Club Sales. My club has a huge one twice a year and I love, love, love the cheap clothing and $2 toys. You can find your local club through www.nomotc.org.

I completely understand, at times you get these amazing things for amazing prices at these sales.
Recently I have developed this of hobby of keeping track of these sales, visiting and noting the observations.

I have also been working around the web to read through good contents for the sales.
I did come across this guide from Eric Koshinsky at http://www.garage-sale-riches.com
If you are planning to have one yourself you should go through it.
