Looks like we didn’t win the Mega Millions jackpot, after all. But, weekends in Spring can be a great time to find some steals at yard sales in your area! Think of all those people in the midst of cleaning out…
I almost drove past this yard sale, but something caught the corner of my eye and I had to turn back around. So glad I did!
I miss hiking and have considered getting a baby carrier backpack so that I can do some longer hikes, but THOSE PRICE TAGS?! Ouch! They are not cheap, so I’ve been keeping my eye out for a good deal on one.
I was prepared to pay at most $4o or so when I walked up their driveway. But, it was marked FIVE DOLLARS. Insanity! It’s in pretty great shape, too. It’s clearly been used a lot (which means it can’t be that uncomfortable) and I think with some washing up, it will work out great.
Hey, for five bucks, what’s the risk?
This carrier is made in USA by Tough Traveler. I can’t figure out what model it is closest to because it’s clearly older and doesn’t match any particular one. Looks like it could have cost anywhere between $140 and $204 if new. And, it’s MINE for 5 clams. So psyched!
It can be hard to find things like jogging strollers and baby backpacks on Craig’s List or at consignment stores/expos because they get bought up SO FAST! But, I find that you can usually have better luck with yard sales.
Let the yard sale season begin! Happy hunting…and hiking! Can’t wait to hit the trail like old times.
What are you in search of this yard sale season?
