Hi All!
Since yard sale season is now in full swing, I thought we should reignite this thread. Share your scores, tell of yardsaling strategies, other $$-saving strategies, tips on having yardsales, etc.

I just went to a yardsale today of missionaries moving to Africa who were ridding themselves of most material goods. (yay, for me!). I got a huge box of candle-making supplies, a deep roasting pan full of unopened organic oil, spices, wheatgerm and art supplies, as well as (drumroll...) two brand new pairs of Birkenstock (yes, namebrand!) sandals. Total?? 3 bucks!!!!!!!

Julie, you found some great deals!~ would have *loved* to find birks..... we had a community garage sale this weekend it was fun. found a lot of namebrand good quality kids clothes, new balance tennis shoes brand new $2 ... pyrex dishes, nature/animal books...... I love yard sales there are sooo many good finds for not that much money~
(I'm not materialistic and only into namebrands, but I find that kids clothes actually hold up a lot better and last longer) =)

We have the best thrift stores in the world here in Chi-town. I got a pair of NEW Birkenstock shoes and a pair of Dansko for 2 dollars each. Brita filters for 99 cents for an 8 pack . Thank goodness, I couldnt see paying full price. I got a 5 pound brick of beeswax also for 50 cents. I cannot pay full price for anything anymore. Happy thrifting, garage saleing or wahtever is in your neck of the woods

I work for a church, and get to make my purchases at their annual rummage sale while the ladies are setting it up. We've been living QUITE frugally since my husband was out of work for a month (he now has a job...yipee!), so I wasn't going to bother going this year. I had to work anyway, so I went down to the sale to check it out...I found such good stuff that I had to fill a bag (it's a bag sale...$5 a bag). I saw they had two almost-new carseats (formerly owned by a mom I know!) and asked what the price was for them (in case friends could use them, as I knew I couldn't afford them!). I got the two carseats and my bag full of jeans and other clothes for my kids, sneakers, books, cards, coats, etc. ... all for $6!!!

We went to an annual yard sale this year, where we got two bowling balls and a bag last year for $5 total, and were told that if we came back the next day, we could fill a box for $10...any size box. We arrived bright and early the next morning with a computer box....filled it for $10 (oil lamp, lantern, garden tools, a kitchen scale, a case with a beautiful coffee set in it, a Mikasa coffe serving pot, a vase, tools, 40 ball jar dome lids, several containers, about 20 different kitchen utensils, an old metal pin the tail on the donkey game, fabric, a bag full of zippers, and tons more. They had EVERYTHING at this sale!

Oooh, I am the queen of garage sales right now. We just moved into a real house, and picked up a shovel, composter (one of the black insulated ones), a hoe and a spade for $7. Yay me! I also picked up a solid oak table (then dropeed it on my toes. ) and chairs for $50.
We just moved to a much more expensive area, but apparently the garage sales are awesome. Yay us!

Has everyone here read The Complete Tightwad Gazette ?
Just making sure...
I'm having trouble finding other books to read on saving money that are as good as that one. Any suggestions?

It is "spring clean-up" time here. Everyone puts all the stuff they don't want in the alley and it gets hauled away for free. I consider it free shopping Last year I got a patio table and umbrella. This year I got a great wooden rocking chair, I just need to make a few small repairs and refinish it! I have hit a few garage sales too. I found a few good deals. I can;t wait till the sales are in full swing!

:LOL I kept renewing my copy of the TWG until it looked so used, that I finally retuned it and bought a used one from Amazon.com.

I'd love to freecycle, but in my area I guess I'd actually have to start it and be the mod. uh-oh, i think i'd collapse under the pressure!

Funny I just got done doing our budget and seeing where we could cut costs. We livei n Brooklyn so we go to consign/thrift stores but don't have the luxury of sale-ing.

My question is The Complete Tightwad Gazette how good is it really? Is it really worth the 13 or so bucks I have to spend to get it? Can you give me some examples of valuable-the book paid for itself-tips? Thanks!

My post meant to say I renewed the book from the library...
goodcents ~ check your library, they probably have it. There were 3 volumes and the Complete TWG is a compendium.
It is truly inspiring b/c the author has 6 kids and is living debt-free and retired at age 40-something. wow! Taught me how to make & use a price book for buying groceries. Where to make major investments and where not to (bought our chest freezer b/c of it). It's not like any other money saving book I've read. The last ones I checked out from the library were one on saving money by buying nearly everything from the dollar store (=crap), and the other was the Consumer Reports one about getting the best value for your dollar while buying fast food and such!
Amy Dascyzyn's (sp?) book is very practical and real. And serious tightwaddery!

goodcents- TG is a great book. I keep checking it out from the library. Give it a look at the library before you buy in case it's things you already know or don't think it would work for you. Some of it I'd never do, or can't- other things are great ideas.

There's a bigger edition that contains both the TG books- that one would be the best bargain if you're buying.

Yesterday I got:
* a big turkey roasting pan w/ cover for 50 cents
* 14 children's books (including several big, hardbound books such as James Herriot's Tales for Children...most for homeschooling) for $2
* a toaster for $3

And I freecycled a trunk-full of clothes which will clothe both of my boys this summer ... and for about 2-3 years to come! (Lots of Old Navy, LL Bean, Children's Place, OP, FUBU, Gap) FREE

My friend, who is visiting from Nebraska (and tag sale virgin) was amazed at what you can get at tag sales and consignment shops. She was planning on paying $15 each for my son and daughter's upcoming birthdays. So far she got my daughter an outfit and shirt and still has $7.50 left in her budget for her ... and she bought my son an educational CD-rom game and a big castle playset and has $8 left to spend on him. She's amazed!

We live in a quiet neighborhood of primarily retirees. It's near a main road, but we don't get any traffic at all down at our end. So whenever one of us has a sale, we really don't do well at all.

I was thinking of coordinating a neighborhood-wide garage sale - we would all hold it the same weekend and I would run an advertisement in the local newspaper, make large signs, etc.

Has anyone here ever been a coordinator for one of these things? Any tips or suggestions?

Thanks!

I think if those are advertised well, they can do really well. Our area is full of community sales b/c so much is rural out here. My neighborhood has a yearly yard sale at the bottom of the mountain where there are tennis courts & an old ski chalet (b/c there's a parking lot). Tons of people come to it, much more than would venture up our mountain to find a single one, although some people are into having their own sale. It is the Property Owners Assoc. who makes signs, puts ad in paper, etc. They go around with a bucket to all the sellers and ask for a little donation to reimburse their efforts. They do LOTS of advertising, too. They make nice 8x10 laminated sheets and post them all over town (library, cafe windows, gas station, anywhere they are allowed) about a week in advance. Maybe you could find some other neighbors who could volunteer to help advertise.
good luck!

oh, frugal moms, please help me!!! i am a complete failure as a frugal mom. i am starting to really worry about myself, i just can't hold on to my $$, i don't know what my problem is. even when i am good about tracking it, i still have no willpower. it's hard living in NYC where temptation lurks on every corner. maybe it's easier in rural areas? or maybe the internet kills that theory. anyway, i need help!

i guess i will look for the TWG. one problem for me is i can't buy bulk b/c i live in the city and don't have a car. are all you frugal moms SAHMs?

oh, about yard sales and such ... when i lived in seattle and had a car, my favorite springtime activity was dumpster diving on college campuses during move-out week. those college kids throw out EVERYTHING. big fun. too late now for most schools but if your local college hasn't ended its term yet, definitely go get yourself a sofa!

Just wanted to mention that, if after checking out the TWG you want to buy it, you can often find cheap copies on half.com -- I buy A LOT of books there! For you college students, they even have great deals on textbooks, especially around the end and beginning of semeseters.

I am trying, trying, trying to be more frugal. But I'm also trying to steer our family towards a more natural, organic lifestyle, and sometimes those two thigns seem to be opposing forces. Can't wait until this "alternative" lifestyle becomes mainstream so it isn't so darned expensive! <lol>

As for yardsales, I found some good clothes for DD and DS yesterday, and a few more to resell on ebay. In fact, the ones I resell should probably cover the cost of the ones I bought for our use. (Gotta love ebay!)

Here's a question for all of your frugal mamas: How do you yardsale with children? My two year old hates, hates, hates getting in and out, in and out, in and out of the car. And my infant isn't too thrilled with it either. And then I spend half my time trying to keep little fingers away from breakable stuff. (I got to go without DS yesterday because DH was home, but that's unusual.)

Anyway, happy saling to you all!

My kids love yardsaling... well, my youngest is only 10 mon. so I guess he doesn't have an opinion yet . But he doesn't mind it. I definately can't go power-yard-saling with the kids b/c of the time to get in & out of car = time to change dipes, BF, etc. My older son loves YSing, but I don't really love him to go with me b/c he always just wants to buy junky toys. He started having to bring his own coin pouch to pay for his stuff. Also, if he's with me I can't buy him presents (or buy surprises for DH - he always gives it away!). But since DH is gone all week, he doesn't mind hanging out with DS1 while I yardsale Sat. mornings.
Another thought about that is: 2 yrs. ago, when we lived closer to town, 3 other moms & I started a child-care coop on Sat. mornings. I was the only one using it to go yardsaling, but it worked out well for everyone. I only had to sacrifice 1 sat. morning a month to stay at home.

guerrillamama~ You should definatly check out the Complete TWG. the author lives rural, but she used to live in NYC (i think that was the city) and has great tips on how to maximize storage space, and live frugally in a city

For used books, check out http://www.addall.com
It has a database of every single used book website you can imagine. It just searches all of them and finds the best rates!

I am a WAHM. I do ebay and shipping for Suzanne Arms' local non-profit. Guerrillamama~ I'm sort of in the opposite situation as you, b/c I live extremely rural. But a friend who lives up the mountain from me has had major car problems, and for several months, she would just ride into town with us, and she could buy all her bulk groceries, go yardsaling, to the thrift, etc. Do you know anyone who is also into bulk buying and has a car that could help you out?

I am not really rural, I am in a realively small city. I take DS garage saleing by popping him into the stroller and going. This is a good option if where youi live is flat and you don't mind the walk. Of course, i don't have a car either. Sometimes, DH will keep an eye on DS so that I can go with my grandma, who does drive.

Guerillamama- Friends of mine who do not drive often rant a car once a month, or take a cab. I shop with a wagon to drag DS around it, and that is about as bulk as I get. Of course, it is a pretty good sized wagon, so I can drag home 50 lbs of flour, a couple cases of juice or cans, and some other stuff in one trip. Is there an orgaic co-op or anything that you can find? Do you have a friend who also wants to save money who would split stuff like the cab fare/car rental, huge bags of flour and stuff? Also, I buy a lot of my stuff out of the bulk bins at the nearty grocery store, and it is generally 50% of the pre-packaged price. Plus, i don't have to buy tons.

As for a community yard sale, our neighborhood had one every year on the same weekend, and one person was in charge of putting the ad in the paper. Anyone participating gave her a dollar for the advertising costs. How to organize it? Just talk to your neighbors and say "I was thinking of having a garage sale on x weekend, but if several of us do it together, we will get more people. Interested?"
