Of course, love them!! (and thrift stores). My couch was $5. It looked a lot better a year ago when we got it. Now it is messy from the kids. My family room is completely furnished with couch, tables, lamps from yard sales for a total of $30.

I love yard sales. Although I don't go out specifically looking for them, unless I am looking for something in particular. When I was buying baby stuff (when I was pregnant with Shane after giving all my stuff away AGAIN) I bought all my baby stuff from yard sales. Outside toys are good too!!

I love them but I don't like to go to them by myself and I can't get anyone to go w/ me.

Yes, I love garage sale shopping! It is much more difficult going by myself with the two boys so anytime my sisters are visiting and can help with them we go out shopping. We got our piano at a garage sale, most of our baby equipment, Will's toddler bed. I am also addicted to children's books so that is the cheapest way to buy them and cute kids clothes are always a nice find.

It's too much of a hassle with the kids. I buy more on craigslist now.

I think our best finds from garage sales were a love seat and coffee table for $50 that we had in our family room for a long time.

We are having a garage sale on Saturday..I can't wait to get rid of the clutter!!! DH has been putting some things up on craigslist this week and a few things are already gone. It amazes me that we are reselling some things for what we bought them for and a few things we have even made money on. Nothing like buying a great garage sale find and then reselling it next season for more $$$.

LOVE them... love getting the kids' clothes from them because kids' clothes are so expensive and they outgrow them before they have a chance to wear them LOL Our best find was when I was pregnant with Nicky and I got to the garage sale just as she was getting ready to close it and she had a TON of baby clothes left over and didn't want to have to pack them all up and bring them back inside.. I got so much stuff for free.. I think I spent a total of $5 and left there with 4 walmart bags full of clothes, an exersaucer, and a johhny jump up thing.
