    Hey gang - need some ideas here.... Having our garage sale next weekend. I already have plenty of 'garage sale' stuff to sell... Now I am looking for the 'off the wall' stuff to sell... Here's where you come in ~ HELP! I already have planned the following food items: coffee donuts...
  2. Secondhand Shopping
    Does anyone buy much stuff at yard sales and thrift stores just for resale on the internet? I look for things I can use but I also keep an eye out for things that I know are worth far more than the yard sale price. Today we went out on our bicycles to stop by a few local yard sales. The first...

    Last night, we got a new refrigerator. Out of sake of trying to save the condiments and other items inside the old one, we placed everything in another deep freezer that was on the lowest setting. This morning, these items were frozen. I was wondering what items would not be able to be saved...

    Just thought I'd share this: Homeschool Buyers Co-op (.org) currently has an offer on the school curriculum and several of his packages (example: the Starter Special is usually $49; through the co-op it is $36.95). There is a $1.95 service fee added (plus DR's normal $5.00 shipping), and your...

    ~I don't know if this site have been posted before or not but I just stumbled across it and I see many hours of picture browsing in my future. :P Fabulous redo's on boring, ugly and shabby old stuff. I especially like the changing table into an adorable kiddie kitchen playspot. ;) Better After ~
  9. Secondhand Shopping
    I found a great site that coordinates blogs showing items that have been repurposed from secondhand places, from dumpsters or from roadside collections. These are great ideas especially if, like me, you do not have a great imagination of what could be done with these treasures...

    I have been slowly trying to upgrade clothing, shoes, purses, and bags, etc. These upgraded items to me makes them nicer than the other items I may have. So I put limits on when I can wear/use them. Such as not during a rainstorm for shoes or not when just around the house. Now I realize...

    This week I noticed a limit of 5 shredded cheese ($1 each) at Kroger. They had this same sale a few months back with a limit of 10. I wonder if we will see more of these types of limits?

    It's blazing hot out today so I stayed in and made a "dog-walking purse". It had to be big enough to hold a book, some poop bags (empty of course!) and a water bottle. I spent $2.98 at the thrift store on a straw purse and a long scarf. Then I used beads I already had to make a design on the...

  16. Question and Answer
    A few months ago, I bought two of their Home Design double window fans. I set them up yesterday and the first one out of the box is broken! It doesn't turn on. The second one seems okay but it's very cheaply made and the wires are exposed inside (a design flaw, I think). I went through all my...
  17. Kitchen Basics
    Yesterday, I got to thinking about the times that we order out for food and end up with leftover 'whatever'. The few times my parents ordered Chinese food when we were growing up, we would always end up with a leftover container of sweet and sour sauce. My mom would pour it over chicken and...

  20. Hobbies
    For those who attend or sell at craft fairs or markets, what types of things do people buy? I'm not looking for business ideas or big profit makers, but I went to the church tea and sale with my mother this afternoon and was asked by one of the ladies what sorts of things young people would buy...
