My daughter and I went to several yard sales on Saturday. We even went to two neighborhood yard sales, which are a lot of fun since you can park and go to multiple sales at a time.
Pictured above is a set of eight forks and a pretty yellow plate. These were included in a box marked, "make an offer". So, I bought the eight forks, plate, two batter bowls, and two juice cups for $1.00. I was all ready to haggle with her, but she accepted my offer! I was surprised, but tickled.
I don't know why, but our forks seem to just disappear. I have bought replacements many times at yard sales and thrift stores over the years too.
Here are some of the other items we bought.
Cloth Napkins for 25¢ each.
Hand Stitched Twin Quilt for $2.00.
Thirty One Bag for $2.00. These retail for over $30.
One extra large coffee cup for 25¢, which I always use for soup bowls.
Two really cute glass candle holders with wire rings to hand outside. I love these and they were only $1.00.
We actually bought more than this such as the Vera Bradley bag my daughter for $5.00. These were the highlights though.
My Mom needed me to take her to the doctor this week and she also wanted to do a little grocery shopping at Walmart. I'm hardly ever in there anymore, but I did find some fresh baked bread for 50¢ per loaf. I bought four loves and put three of them into the freezer when I got home.
The other one went into the refrigerator since fresh baked bread will mold quickly here if left out on the counter. I made sandwiches for our lunch from it on Wednesday. I also bought sour cream, cottage cheese, chips for lunches, Life cereal. If you are not couponing then Walmart's prices can be lower when compared to stores that double coupons. It just depends, as always do your math. :)
These days when I have a day off from work, I do not even have to leave the house to take my daughter to school since she drives herself now. This has turned out to be a money saver for me. I used to stop at the grocery store on my way home from dropping her off. Now I just stay home, which as it turns out saves me some money. I love finding the good things in all of these changes in our lives we've been going through.
Dinner tonight is going to be Vegetable Soup & Cornbread.
What's for dinner in your home?
