One of my favorite places to check since I can do it in pj's on my couch is...
Just create an account, choosing your city or the city nearest you. Go to the"For Sale" section and start your search in the categories where you can find your items, for example: appliances, furniture, electronics and much more. One of my favorite categories, the one I go to first is the "FREE" category. People sometimes put awesome stuff in good condition out on the curb.
If you are after any free items, be ready to head out as soon as you see them posted. As you can imagine, they go really fast.
Another benefit of finding an item you really wanted for "free", is the smile you'll be wearing the rest of the day.
Recently our local Goodwill got a face lift. Now when you walk in it looks more like a Marshall's department store. We stopped by for a quick look but have not done any shopping since the renovation.
This summer, two girlfriends and I had a monthly date to go yard saling. It was nice having a set time. We spent most of the day going from sale to sale to sale, breaking for lunch, then back to the sales. Fun times!
The great thing about yard sales is that you can bargain with the seller for an even better price. Also, it's just FUN. If you haven't already, give it a try.
The items found at the Habitat Restore are donated by malls, contractors, schools, even individuals remodeling their homes just to name a few. Whether you buy materials or furniture, you help the organization build homes. It's a win win.
So that completes the "Ten Ways We Save Money" list. I hope you are able to add some of these tips to your own list of money saving tips.
I would love to hear of ways you save. Wanna share?
