Great Yard Sale Day ~ Reminiscent of Amy Dacyczyn

We had a great yard sale day! 

Someone posted their yard sale for today on the Facebook yard sale group last night advertising clothes in my daughter's size, so we set out early to go there. I'm so glad we did too because she was selling them for 25¢ and 50¢ each.  

Three sleeveless shirts and eight short sleeve shirts were 25¢ each, most of them are perfect for school. There are also two pair of Bermuda shorts, which were 50¢ each, perfect for school too. 

Another cute shirt for 25¢.

We bought this for 50¢ for each piece, so $1.00. She probably won't wear the top, but the skirt is very in style right now. 

I still can't believe she sold them so cheaply. I would have gladly paid $1.00 each for all of them. 

I did not buy my daughter any back to school clothes this year and now I am so glad I waited because she has gotten enough clothes these past two to three weeks to do for this school year, and we saved a lot of money in the process. 

I also stopped in at Publix today to check out their crash and burn. I'm so glad I did too. Look what I picked up today:

2 packages Jiffy Apple & Cinnamon muffin mix for 35¢ each, 2 packages Jiffy pizza crust mix for 45¢ each, 2 packages of Glory Cornbread mix for 37¢ each, 2 packages of Bacos for 50¢ each, and a one pound package of yeast for $2.00. 

I also picked up these Betty Crocker mixes that were on sale for buy one get one free and I had coupons, so I paid $1.35 each for these. 

I spent $10 at yard sales today and another $10 at Publix and came home with a lot of items. Like I said, it was a great day. 

How was your day? Did you find any bargains?

  1. This week has been rainy and will continue to be. So, no yard sales. I did get a couple of $1 items for grand-daughters at WM. The sale papers come on Wednesday and are good through next Tuesday, so I really don't know yet, and have not needed anything except milk and bananas. You really did well on those clothes for your daughter. I thought those little tops with the gathered sleeves were adorable, as much as I could tell.

    1. Thank you, Linda. Those shirts were my favorite too. :)

  2. Awesome finds! I, too, don't "do" BTS shopping. I wait, it's still warm so they are wearing shorts. Now that it's colder, and one kidlet actually wore jeans this week, so now we can "shop." : )

    1. Thanks, Carol. I hope you find many bargains while "shopping". :)

  3. So many colorful and pretty pieces of clothing for $10! Congratulations. Can you upcycle or share the unwanted top that accompanies the skirt? Whatever you choose to do, you saved a whole lot of money yard sale shopping. Grocery savings are money in the bank and more food on the table. Continue to share. We all need ideas.

    1. Thank you. :) I will probably ask my Mom if she wants this top, otherwise I will keep it to go with the skirt if DD ever decides she no longer wants it. I have loved shopping at yard sales for her since before she was born. I had a full walk in attic and I had boxes of clothes in bins labeled 0 months all the way up to 2T and they were full. It was fun to shop in the attic when she ran outgrew her current crop of clothes.

  4. Wow! Great finds!
