garage sales rock!

Several neighborhoods around town have been advertising garage sales this week. I woke up early and it's a nice day, so I decided to stir out.

I hit the jackpot at the 1st one I stopped at! I bought $7 worth of baby clothes, and called my mom to tell her about it. I didn't realize what a good deal I had stumbled across- so after talking to mom, I turned around and went back for more stuff!

Here's all the stuff I got this morning:

Fisher Price 'little people' animals/alphabet/zoo set- $5
Books- $1 total
Xylophone- $1
Polo jeans
6 pairs of Gymboree, Baby Gap, Old Navy kahkis/pants
3 Children's Place onsies for next summer
Zantano letter 'Z' pj set
3 sets of Baby Gap pj's
1 hat
1 Gymboree All-Star hoodie jacket
1 Old Navy fleece/sweater
3 Gymboree/Baby Gap shirts
1 Old Navy jacket (6-12 months)
Assortment of 12 pairs of socks, 2 bootie sets- $1 total

I averaged about $0.50 to $0.75 for each article of clothing! None of it has stains, and it was all name-brand. Several of the pants still had tags!!! The sizes range from 3 months to 18 months.
Garage sale season is just getting started- I can't wait to see what else I can find!! Now, if only I could find a cheap Bumbo seat.....

You found some great deals! I can't wait to get out and find some good deals myself this year! There was a big baby yard sale with about 100 venders at a big church nearby this weekend...but I missed it. I was afraid I would being that it was so close to my due date.

I'm not sure if they do this where you live but watch housing additions for "community garage sale." My brothers housing addition has sales and there are over 200 over the weekend! It's awesome!!
