What Can $10 Buy?

A lot in a garage sale!

And to think that we did not plan on going... but since we were up on our usual regular waking time on Saturday, we went.

Here's what we bought last Saturday at our community garage sale:

  • $1 Dress - Satin cotton cloth
  • $3 Speakers - Brand new. Still wrapped in plastic.
  • $1 Business Card Scanner - Brand new. CD was not yet opened.
  • $1 Web Camera 
  • $1 ClipArt CDs - Woo hoo!!! 5 CDs. Published 1996… just don't use the images of people because the hair and fashion style gives away the age! 
  • $3 Tennis Racket Bag - This was the most expensive item. The man knew how to sales talk!
That's my kind of garage sales - go early, nice cool weather, great buys, finish quickly. We were back home by 9:30 am.

How about you? What has been the best stuff your $10 bought you in garage sales?

I'm a bargain hunter too.Here in the UK we don't have garage sales but organised car boot sales. You bring your goods and sell them infront of your car in a field or school yard. Sellers usually pay about £5 to the organisers and buyers are either free or 50p per car. We have a big weekly sale locally, weather is great fun. Best recent buys- £2 - 5 paper lampshades from a posh design store, £2 - genuine army camoflage gloves in leather for my son who does airgun weekends with his friends, £3- a Saltrock surfboard bag, £1-crystal necklace from Monsoon RRP £14,free a touch lamp ,£2- a genuine WW1 helmet for a friend who is a collector.It's just so hard to resist all those bargains that you don't really need.

Hi Ruta! That's a lot for 10 pounds!!! Woo hoo!!! Good for you...

And you are right, it is hard to resist those bargains even if we don't need it. That's why we put a "budget" when we go to these sales. Otherwise, I could easily go up to $30!
