I love yard sales because I never know what I'm going to find. I'm always looking for specific items (mainly toys for my kids, video games for me and books for my wife) but sometimes I may find a skateboard for $1 - wasn't looking for it but for one dollar I can certainly make use of it. Yard sales, thrift stores, Craigslist - all great places to save some money. I'm not cheap, I'm frugal. Here are a few of my tips I use when yard saling and a few things I need to incorporate. These may work for you and I'd love to hear any advice you may have, yourself.
