I had a really lucky weekend! Yard sales were great. My couponing trips were great. Father's Day was great. I am happy!
We started out Friday, and there were only a couple. I got three brand new lamp shades (still wrapped) for $1 each, two decorative pumpkins for the fall for $1, a booster seat for $4, and a waffle maker for $3.
Saturday began slowly, but I made a great find at the end, which is when it counts!
I got the dress for $3 with the intentions of possibly using it for a wedding. The shirt was $1, and the tie was $0.10.
Brand new Sperry flip flops for $5! Awesome find!!
I picked up an old cheese grater for $0.25. I'll be repurposing it; I just don't know how yet!
I was just talking at work about finding silverware for the kitchen. What do you know, I was able to pick this handful up for $0.50. It doesn't matter that it's mismatched, because what they already have is, too.
And here's the best find...an umbrella for our back patio! I've been looking for two years, and I'm glad I waited. I think the brand is Brown Jordan, but it's raining right now, so I can't double check. Ryan and I looked it up online and they ranged in price from $1,000 to $5,000!! I paid $30 for it. It's beautiful, and sitting underneath it yesterday afternoon was just so wonderful.
Sometimes it's annoying waiting to find the things you want, but it really does pay off to be patient.
