Do you go to yard sales? How often do you go?

Have you ever had a garage sale?

This weekend I was driving home and spotted a yard sale. I stoppped in and ended up getting a really cute mirror for $1 and one of those Step 2 toy box/book cases that are normally $60+ for only $5!!! I was so excited!

Depends we'll some times make a morning of it or some times we'll just past one and stop. If I see a lot of baby stuff I'll stop. I've gotten a lot of good toys for my glider that way very cheap. And random other stuff is always good too! 

We have. We're in a bad location for them now though.

I do like them but haven't been in years. I've gotta pay better attention to things like that!

No, I don't have cash, or time. And I'm too paranoid about bed bugs

I love going to them, but don't make it very often. I'll have to keep my eyes open this fall!

 I've stopped at them. I have a friend that used to take a day with her mom and go as she called it "yard sale-ing". I've not done that before spent a Saturday or Sunday going from yard sale to yard sale.

I've never had one. I've heard you can make a fair amount of money with them, but I don't have the patience. So I just gather everything up, and have either the Epilepsy foundation or Big Brother's Big Sisters come pick it up.
