My husband and I had some time to kill before we picked the kids up from school recently.
So without much of a plan (or even a copy of the classified ads), we went in search of garage sales. We stumbled across one sale where there were boxes of DVDs mixed in with a lot of household stuff. There were some movies that were good, and the price was only $1 each, but nothing that we really wanted.
But as we turned to go, I spied a collection of DVDs separate from the others on the table by the money box.
It was a boxed set of the original Star Wars Trilogy and the three new Star Wars movies (the prequels).
All six Star Wars movies on DVD – in perfect condition, with bonus discs – for only $10!
My husband and I were thrilled. Our boys had seen the first Star Wars movie (technically, Episode 4), and loved it, but they haven’t seen the rest. To buy them all at Amazon would have cost us more than $150!!
We’ve already watched three of the movies (thanks to some cold, rainy days), and we’re looking forward to watching the rest soon. Based on the boys’ reaction, this won’t be the only time we watch the series.
It’s really fun to snag a great deal on something you really wanted. I will definitely remember to look everywhere at a garage sale. Sometimes deals are in unexpected places!
What kind of deals have you found at garage sales?
