    Place WANT ADS for items you want and get FIRST choice at what people have.
I use REVERSE ADDRESS FINDER for yard sales and get the phone numbers and CALL to see what they have so I don't waste time driving to ones that have nothing I want.

    yeah my wife says like that john bob or what ever his name is on 18 or 19 kids and counting, buy used and save the difference, which she was doing that for a while, I work in timber so i don't have a 9-5 office job, if it rains, snows, equipment tares up, and other reason's can keep me from working, and she learned quickly even at the age of 16 to do what you can to save any amount of money, everything from how to make cheap meals, to clipping coupons, saving our change, her having yard sales, shopping at thrift stores, and yard sales, having the swap meets, etc.
