I think it's part of the mommy DNA. Moms love bargains, we love to brag about all the amazing deals we get and most moms that I know love yard sales. I am no exception to those common mom traits. I love the hunt for a good deal!
This past Saturday, my fellow-mommy friend and I woke up early and hit the yard sales. It was a blast! We mapped out a route and started making the rounds. We were determined to find some amazing deals to brag about...and we did!
I got some really cheap, but well-kept winter clothes for my 10-month-old Jude. I also got a seat to put him in at restaurants and a few toys. But this was my biggest find...my yard sale prize...
In case you can't tell what it is, I'll explain. It's one of those pop-up tunnel and tent sets. It has 4 tunnels, 2 little tents and 1 big tent. This thing is huge! It takes up the entire foyer and part of the dining room at my house. The funny thing is that my husband and I were going to buy one of these for Jude for his 1st birthday (which is coming up!) and we had already started shopping around for one. The one we wanted to get him was 70-bucks!!! I found an amazing deal on this tunnel system...it was just 5-bucks! Can you believe that??? What a steal! I'm so proud of this one, as I'm sure you can tell.
Moms, share your bargain hunting tips with me. Where do you look for the deep discounts - yard sales? outlets? consignment shops? Share your stories with me!
While we're on the topic, I've got some info on another sale for used baby stuff. It's next weekend at Lindbergh High School. Click here for all the details.
