Hinckley's Favorite Past-time...

Everyone's trying to pinch pennies and stretch dollars lately because of the economy and rising prices for everything. No worries, everyone, I've got the perfect solution:

Yard sales!

My wonderful mother-in-law got me hooked on yard saling when we were in Texas. Some people are turned off by the idea of getting things used, and that's fine if you can afford all new things, but if you can't, you've got to decide what you love more: new things or saving money. It's really just a big treasure hunt, and it comes with bonus features too: bargaining! This is so much fun, I can't believe how long I've paid full price for things.

Here's a few of my favorite buys.

New set of Kingdom and the Crown books: $5

Cozy Coupe: $5

Some other things were a super nice snowsuit for Tyler ($1), a nice, sturdy set of normal comfy couches ($25), and a jogging stroller, a crib and two desks (free). It's so much fun! There's some going on now, even here in snowy Provo. Get out there and save some money!

Some other places to check for cost-effective or free things:

I am so impressed that you are already out there at yard sales! I am also jealous that you can find LDS related things there in Provo. Good on you! Keep looking for those treasures :):):)
