Yard Sale Saturday & My Frugal Week

by - May 26, 2019

School is over for the summer, so I was able to turn off my alarms this week. Of course, my body knows what time it is and I've been waking up right around 5 a.m. each morning. LOL

First thing we did on Friday was go to several yard sales. We also went to multiple sales on Saturday and had the best time. 

Of course, I brought sandwiches, granola bars, and drinks with us, so we didn't spend any money for food out of the house either day.  

Here are some photos and descriptions of the goods I found this week. 

Acer Laptop $30, which will be perfect to carry as it's a smaller one. We haggled with the seller to see if he would take $25 or throw in this bread machine and he did. 

Rival Bread Machine 

Tupperware canisters and cups. There are two canisters, one is nestled in the bigger one. Both of these items were  $1.00 each. 

Brand New Kenneth Cole Leather Laptop Bag $1.00. 

These sell for over $100 online, so this was a surprising find. I'm going to list this on eBay for some added income this summer. 

What was funny was that I found eleven brand new pencils in the bag. I've added these to my sub bag for next school year.

This brand new 8 Quart Stockpot, Steamer, Pasta Insert was only $2.00 and sells for over $50 online. This will also be listed on eBay for added income this summer. 

Popcorn Machine $5.00

Other items I found, but did not picture include: 

Multiple CDs 10¢ each
Movies $1.00 each
Cookbook $1.00
Tennessee Vols Sweatshirt $1.00
Thirty One Bag 50¢
Bathroom Rug 50¢

Like I said it was a great yard sale weekend. 

On the frugal front this week we went to Kroger on Tuesday afternoon and found several items in the marked down bread section. 

One of the items was a bag of cinnamon raisin English muffins marked down to 59¢. There was a 25¢ Ibotta rebate on those making them 29¢ or 5¢ each. 

We also picked up the Kroger Friday freebie, which was a bottle of Core water. 


Kroger also had Hillshire Farms smoked sausage on sale for $1.99 when you buy five, so I bought those as well. 

That's all the news I can think of for now. I have several projects I will be working on this week and updating my blog more often is on that list. 

I'd love to hear how your week went.
