Less than $20!

My husband and I went yard-saleing last weekend.  It was the first time we've ever been able to just intentionally search for yard sales! Normally we see one and either have no time so we pass it by, or we try to cram in a quick visit on the way to our destination but we spent the whole morning last Saturday perusing those we found as we meandered through neighborhoods at a leisurely pace.  We had one goal in mind--baby stuff.  I wanted baby clothing because we're quickly running out of all the baby shower gifts as Bunny get's close to growing out of her 6-9 month clothes and we don't really have money to restock her wardrobe every 3-6 months.  I wanted to get her books because I want to instill a love of reading in her and I'm getting tired of reading the ones she already has that are somewhat age-appropriate (meaning they aren't super long).  And I thought it would be nice to get her some more toys, though she has two baskets of toys and really, are toys a necessity when babies and kids often prefer to play with things of the non-toy variety anyway? 
So, after a couple of hours of stopping at yard sales and toting our precious one in and out of the car in her adorable sunhat and dress, this is what we got:

Less than $20 for the whole thing.  I'd say that was successful, wouldn't you?

I find that garage sales offer so much more baby stuff for girls then boys. I really have to search for good boys clothes for my little guy. But i do agree, garage sales are great!
