Excellent find! Don't you love that? I found one at the thrift shop in Germany(on post) for $7. Cleaned it well & we had it for years til I loaned it to one of DH's soldiers for his daughter (single dad) and he kept it and moved away.

Thanks! I've been stocking up in stuff and shirts. They'll be getting a bunch of souvenir type stuff, but I've paid very little for everything.

Re: I just saved $X.xx buying on Craigslist!

At Christmas I found a hand-painted Christmas village, 30 houses/shops for $50. She then sold me the remaining 30 for $25 I think. She had painted all of them and made them personalized to the area where we live. It's almost way too much village, but darn they are cool.

And 2 weeks ago I scored free pavers, probably half a pallet of so. I will use them to edge my new gardens and make pathways through them. And I'll still have some leftover.

Re: I just saved $X.xx buying on Craigslist!

I've been doing more minimalism lately so more selling than buying. But I do love that a lot of things I've been able to get a good deal on in the past I'm able to re-sell for around the same price! We used a toybox that matches the nursery theme for 2 years, and we bought it for $20 and sold it for $20.

We also just sold our entertainment center thing with speakers/subwoofer/dvdplayer/tuner for $40. Originally bought it 5 years ago for $50.

And we sold some play hut pop up tents for $20 that originally cost I think $30-40. I've used them for about 8 years and have had tons of kids I babysit use them. Very worth it!

Another one that kinda made me mad but then worked out ok was when I bought a set of barstools recently for $30. She told me the specific dimensions but when I got them home found out she was wrong and they wouldn't fit. So I researched the style a little and they were under priced. Listed them for $60 and they sold that day!

Oh and we got a big plastic play structure last year for $60. It ended up being not nearly as awesome of a set as I would have liked, it just wasn't very well designed. So I listed it for $200 later in the summer and managed to sell it for $150 the next day (which means I made a $90 profit on it). After doing more research I found the perfect 8 in 1 little tykes play structure for $100 - which means I paid $10 for it) and the toddler LOVES it and plays with it every day.

I love getting awesome deals because when it comes time to resell I've often been able to get a good chunk of that money back if not all of it, and sometimes an occasional profit! I love craigslist!
