Yes, I'm a Yard Sale Queen

Yard Sale???

Yes please?
I got to go to a community-wide yard-sale on the east side of Montgomery, Alabama this past weekend.


It was so much fun!
I got so many great items of clothes that were either gently used, some were even NEW!
I got a great floppy hat for the beach!

I had a great time with my mom and sister. We hadn’t spent much time together since the wedding, and it was great to be thrifty with them. My sister got some great props for her

I was able to buy my husband some brand new dry fit shirts and some gym clothes… for $2 a piece! I got some NY&Co pants and tops for like… a dollar!!

I got a really neato frito giraffe print dress!... I even made a fool of myself trying things on in folks’ driveway; they didn’t mind… In fact they encouraged it!
you can see me here trying on
this green skirt and cover up, aka
being a goofball!

Tons of great things!

If you are too scared to yard sale; you should definitely rethink going. You’d be surprised what people will sell! I saw so many items that still had the tags on them! It’s definitely the way to go! Of course, the frustrations do exist. You have to hit some bad yard-sales to find the good ones, but in community yard sales like this one… They’re all good! This was a well-to-do (ish) neighborhood and these people all had great items! I’m telling you what, when we have kids… I will definitely go yard sale-ing for the big ticket items; maybe even clothes!! C’mon folks, anything can be sterilized!

This is definitely my new hobby:
Thrifting and Garage Sale Hopping!

looks like we have two things in common...both from Alabama and both love buying clothes at yard sales!!! I no longer buy retail unless it's for a very special party etc. All my family and friends are surprise at all my awesome deals. Hop over and join at my NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAYS PARTY and share your deals.

Blessings,
Linda
