yard sale stuff

This past weekend I happened to be driving by a yard sale that looked promising. You know what I mean, the stuff looked like it belonged in a store and not at the dump. It had great yard things, including a red patio set that caught my eye, plus other great finds for the home. (My instagram picture, minus the kitty, of course.)

Yard saling used to be a priority for us when our kids were younger. We bought soccer equipment, clothes, bikes, things for the pool.

And then for our backyard we bought a patio heater, furniture, garden tools – so many yard things.

We’ve literally saved thousands of dollars by being thrifty and yard saling throughout the years.

My finds this week included this red patio set for only $50. It was like brand new and our front courtyard area that Lowe’s helped us with last year was screaming for something RED.

This beautiful heavy tray added the pop of color I was looking for in this corner of our living room.

8 black salad plates for a few bucks. A small side table for the pool area. And my favorite … more than the red patio set, was the monkey tree.

A few sales this year have satisfied my longing for a few new things (new to me), because at the same time, we’re in a stage of life where we don’t want to hold on to too much stuff. We’re actually trying to get rid of stuff. So my philosophy now is if I bring something new into the home, I have to get rid of something.

It works. And it reminds me that I don’t want to be a collector of anything!

What are your favorite finds from yard saling this summer?
