  • I got a nwt(but the price was ripped off) Stage purse for my MIL at our local Goodwill for $4.00. I know nothing about handbags and prices, I just thought it was nice looking. She flipped when I gave it to her! haha

  • I got a Juisy couture velour set for 11 dollars on e bay with free shipping. The lady told me she needed cash asap and did not care how cheap she sold stuff for even though it was a real Juicy outfit. The best part was that she had a typo which read that it was jumpsuit and was in the wrong category on e bay so I lucked with a brand new dark red JC and no one else bid on it.

  • When people put out their trash and stuff they don't want like new like furniture and tables and a huge china cabinet,i take them. I go junking! I furnished my living room and kitchen with stuff I got for free. It is amazing that people get rid of brand new furniture without anything wrong with them.

  • I got an antique wash stand for free from Freecycle. It's beautiful but needs some TLC.


    It looks like this but the tile is different:
