Garage Sale Finds 4/14

One more quick post while my veggies are cooking.  After we went to Aldi this morning, we went back out for a little ride because we had seen a few garage sale signs.  My daughter who will be 5 next month absolutely loves garage sale and begs me to stop anytime she sees one, so I thought we would go and just see what was out there this morning before it was time for lunch.

Here is what I found for my girls:

Two nice shirts for my oldest girl for $0.50 each.  We just found out that she will not have to wear school uniforms next year so now we have more freedom where the clothing is concerned.  That and she has a thing for horses.  She also picked out that adorable pair of flip flops that just happened to be her sister's size.  They were in perfect shape and cost just $1.

Then I found a couple things for myself:
I got a nice thick knee length khaki skirt and a really nice dress..it's been a very long time since I've gotten a new dress.  It's actually navy with diagonal white pinstripes that you can't see.  Both of these cost me just $1 each, and that dress was from the Limited, so I don't even want to know how much it originally cost!  Also, the size tag had been cut out, so I no clue what size it was, but I tried them on when I got home and both fit me perfectly. =)

All of this cost me $4 total, and just a drive around my neighborhood.  People sell things all the time that are in perfect condition for incredible prices.  I would much rather score an awesome deal on something nice while at the same time helping out a neighbor than pay retail prices for these things and have my money go to some big corporation.

What about you?  Do you shop at garage sales?  What is the best deal you've ever found?
