When you go to a stockpile/yard sale, what types of things would you be leaning towards to get first??

What are some items that you just "gotta have" from a stockpile sale? Shampoos/cond or what??

  • nice Furniture.... I just found a lovely old rocking chair at a yard sale the other day. Saved me from having to buy a new one for when My Son is born! :)

  • Oh yeah. It was only 10 bucks compared to 200!

  • I guess I've never been to one of those...

    I guess it would depend on what kind of stuff and the brands. If they had my preferred brand of diapers and wipes I would get those!! And laundry detergent/fabric softener. If they had Oxiclean cheap, I'd stock up on that for sure since I use it all the time!! And toilet paper. I like to stock up on TP!!

  • at regular yard sales, I look for brand name baby clothes first. Then I look for nice children's books. Then books for me. If they have video games I look at those, and DVDs too.

  • I always look for clothes for my nieces and nephews, since my brother and sister are hurting and I have 5 kids so I really cannot buy clothes for them outright.

  • At regular yard sales, I try to go for house decorations. I'm trying to decorate my house but I'd rather buy nice yard sale stuff than brand new stuff. I couldn't afford it anyway!

  • At regular yard sales the 1st thing I look at is kids clothes. Then I look at other things- like books, kids stuff, household items......

    If I found a stockpile sale I would look for diapers, wipes, butt cream, baby wash, laundry soap, shampoo, body soap, paper goods..... if I found things that I use, at a good price then I would definately stock up!
