I volunteered to sort and price the bi annual rummage sale for our church. There was alot of gross and old stuff of course, there always is :). I even had to sort a bag of donated thongs!! That was gross. There were some awsome finds though. A trash bag of Ralph Loren clothes brand new with tags, ugg boots brand new. And loads of barely worn kids clothes. As a thank you for sorting we got to pick three things for half price. I got a nearly new shirt with butterflies a pair of cutie capri pants with polka dots and butterflies, and a pair or levis with hot pink sequins for my dd for less than a dollar! tomorrow I'm going back to get more clothes and a ceramic unicorn for dd because her b day is conning up and she loves unicorns.

Edit:
Today was sale day and I got 37 pieces of clothing for the whole family for 12 dollars!!! And I got the ceramic unicorn for dd :).
Dh got 2 brand new looking gap sweaters and a fleece jacket and a long sleeve bears t-shirt.
I got 2 old navy long sleeve tee shirts ( fairly new looking), a couple of tank tops, 3 short sleeve t shirts and 3 Cato long sleeve waffle knit t-shirts that were brand new. Plus a couple of sweaters. The kids have lots of new stuff too, wrangler jeans, okie dokie shirts and children's place stuff as well as a couple gap shirts for my oldest. I was really picky and only got new looking stuff. And the interesting thing is, this rummage sale was not as good as the last one and I still got all that nice stuff!! I probably got 400 dollars worth of clothes for 12 bucks :)

It's almost like a treasure hunt :) and soo much cheaper than consignment shops. It really helps the clothing budget when you can get a super stuffed bag of kids clothes for 5 or 8 bucks :).
