I always tell myself “No more books!” before we hit garage sales, but today I just couldn’t resist. We went to a really nice neighborhood community sale this morning. And found some mommas selling some incredibly great books and learning tools at really good prices!
We plan on homeschooling, so I am trying to stock up on things we will use in the future. Like atlases. I found four different types for children at $0.50 a piece! I also got some great picture books by authors like Tomie DePola and Eric Carle. And a Shel Silverstein book for $0.50! And yes, those are cassette tapes. Hubby thinks I am crazy for buying those, but they are sing-a-longs for nursery rhymes and math skills… at $0.25/each! Music is a very important part of education and believe me, I need all the help I can get in the music area.
I have been wanting to get those Dot Markers for awhile now but couldn’t pay full retail. I found these barely used for $2, as well as a felt board with a bag full of felt pieces for $1. Scored a cute spring 18 mo. outfit for Cami and the only shoes her wide, chubby feet can fit into for $1. The doll is wooden with velcro on her body, so you can dress her with the bag full of felt outfits. Super cute and fun, especially for $0.50! Hubby found the USA foam floor puzzle… very exciting since Brylee is really getting into big floor puzzles. He also found a screen printing DIY kit, which he has been wanting. All in all, a very good garage sale day!
Have you found any great deals at garage sales lately?
