I have only gone to a garage sale once and bought something. in my area there are never anything good.
I hadn't been really finding anything either! Today was my first time having any success.
It's not really a garage sale but a once-a-season consignment sale that goes on here for 4 days each time (I think). Today was the last day so everything was 1/2 off. I got a lot for my older son but here's some stuff I got for the baby:
Bouncer for ten bucks:
Little preemie fleece sleeper w/ hat for 2$
Snoogle brand body pillow w/ cover for 10$!!!!
I can't wait to try this tonight!
And then a bag of 6 pair of fuzzy nb socks for 1.50$.
I know there are others getting deals out there! I wanna see purchase pictures!! It's all so cute!
I don't garage sale very often, but we have a big consignment sale in our area next week and I plan to go for the first time. I am soooo excited! I am hoping to find a contoured changing pad, a pink mesh crib bumper, an ergo infant insert, maybe a diaper bag and a medium and large wet bag. I will be shocked if I don't find a changing pad, but everything else, who knows. There is another big consignment sale around labor day wekend, and whatever I don't find on my wish list at either of these, I will buy new after that.
I called it junk sales today. Everyone had one table out and that was it. Well all but one sale who wanted almost the same prices as in stores for her stuff. Nope. I did get a TV for my daughters room. We had 4 TVs in Florida but 2 broke right before the move so we need to get a few more. 10 bucks for like a 20 inch.
I usually hit the garage sales pretty hard, but it's just been too hot here lately. We do have 2 private schools that do twice yearly consignment sales, but they won't have their fall sales until Oct. I know I will have to go to those because I can get all DS's clothes for winter there for really cheap.
