I go through periods of yard saling and pretty much only go to 2nd hand shop when I need shopping to up cycle like frames or containers and need something for a one time use like a specific color shirt or pants for my child's school activity that they won't wear again.

Probably my best find at a yard sale was stampin up stamp sets for a couple dollars.

I rarely go to yard sales. I never find anything good. I do hit the thrift stores occasionally. I'm still looking for small furniture to refinish. (again, thanks Pinterest).

I found a small media cabinet at a thrift store that is solid wood for under 20 bucks. (It's still waiting to get refinished....smh)

Sometimes. I used to do this a lot but haven't been looking around lately. My dh does the best with finds. He bought Shawn a little drum set for $5 that normally retails for a hundred and something.
