So, I wanted to share our successes of this past week but, you first have to know the background a little.
I have a constant, what I call, “running list” of things that we need/want eventually. This is so that when I see a good deal, I can jump on it! We make sure to pre-budget for these opportunities so it doesn’t hurt us. Most months we don’t buy anything off the list so we just save what we budgeted for a future month of good deals (like this month!). Here’s the list:
- Matching side tables
- TV wall mount (before Little C is big enough to crawl and pull up and take our current TV down)
- Bread Maker
- Baby Bath
- Rocking Chair
- Oval Casserole Dish and Top
- Christmas Presents (I’m one of those people with a present cupboard that I keep throughout the year)
- Real Leather Jacket
Anyways, my sister introduced me Facebook Yard Sale sites last month and they are terribly awesome. Basically on the Facebook search you type in “My City Buy/Sell/Trade” or “My City Yard Sale” or the like until you find one (or multiple in your city). I am on one for our city and one for the city right next to us and while they have been super useful, I probably need to slow down because I’ve bought three things in the past two weeks.
Here are the three things I’ve crossed off our list:
TV Wall Mount:
Do you keep a list like me? Is it in your head, on your phone, on a piece of paper? Have you used a yard sale page before? Do you like them?
