Yard Sale - tips

Hello Friends!
This morning I went yard saling and came away with some great deals!!
I found this swing - for $3 dollars Baby bug loves it!!! She looks so cute swinging from the tree in our yard. 
I found an older walk behind toy for her for just $.50
I found this umbrella Stroller for $1.00 it was in great shape that was such an exciting buy!!

I was really excited about these buys!! There are a few things to remember when yard saling that make for a much more excited adventure:
  1. Go early - the early bird gets the worm really applies here!!  but if you did hit that snooze button six times don't worry end of the yard sale day is a good time too as the sellers just want to get the rest of their things gone and are much more likely to expect a low offer.
  2. Wear comfy shoes - one thing to remember about yard saling is there will be many places to see and the only way to hunt down the bargains is sift through all the junk.
  3. Community Sales-These tend to be a big plus in my book I love hitting one neighbor hood and finding so many deals.   Especially now that I have baby bug to lug.  It is great to park the car and stick her in a stroller to hit so many yard sales.  
  4. Carry cash in small bills- Some sellers will not have money to make change so carry small amounts of money.  This is a good time to get rid of those of that loose change at the bottom of your purse. 
  5. Don't be afraid to bargain- Many sellers welcome your bargaining.  It never hurts to ask.
Happy Bargain hunting!!
