Yard Sale Finds: Need Vs. Junk!

What I really love about yard sale shopping is when I find something for a few dollars, but more importantly when it’s something that I’ve needed for quite some time. Like our toaster which recently died, and then finding this beauty for $3. It’s like new and works perfectly!

There seems to be a big difference with “need” versus bringing home more “junk.”

I’m constantly trying to thin out. I keep a box in the garage where I can add to it, or take to Good Will when it gets full.

In the meantime, here are a few $1 finds that really make me happy. All under $5 – I’ve saved in the hundreds of dollars by being smart and buying used.

Large Family Room pillows – $4 for all.

Bathroom basket and small plant – $1 each.

Planter turned napkin holder – $1.

Set of 25 glass dishes – $5.

Perfect for apples – $5 (I probably spent too much on this item).

Lamp – $1.

Large decorative bowl – $4.

A favorite Good Will pitcher – $1.99.

Yard saling doesn’t have to be big and elaborate.

Sometimes it’s the $1 finds that can really make you happy!

I’d love to hear about your weekend bargains?

(If you didn’t catch my yard sale post last week, check out my $5 bargain, and my time with Apron Thrift Girl. I’m so excited to get this cool, retro light fixture hung! Today this post is linked to Rhoda’s Thrifty Treasures. And in case you need to find another awesome blog – Linda T has posted her bargains and I just love her $2.99 burlap table runner! Take a peek!)

  1. I love your finds – you certainly discovered some bargains. I have a local junk shop I visit regularly. Even picking up colourful plates which I attach to fencing by our patio – adds lots of colour. they even last through the British rain, wind and frost!
