However, we still were able to take advantage of some great deals! Here's what we did this weekend:
We replaced it one year ago with an AWESOME fridge that we love (bought from the Sears scratch & dent outlet for a steal!) so it's been living in our garage ever since. It's been nice having a second fridge but it's been slowly dying for years now the freezer stopped working. We figured we couldn't sell it but didn't know how to get rid of it.
We heard about the “See you later refrigerator” program, called, and got $30 for our old fridge and they picked it up for us! It was great. I recommending finding a similar program in your area if you don't live in the Salt Lake Valley.
Later on Friday I picked up a HAUL of shoes that I sent to a shoe repair place to get fixed, re-soled, and shined up. I wish I had taken pictures, the transformation was amazing!! This is one of the things we've done to help us get out of debt; take care of the things you have, and repair them rather than replace them whenever possible!
In case you are interested and live in the SL Valley, I use Ace Shoe Repair and highly recommend him.
I picked up my produce basket, then went yard sale-ing again! I took my friend Shannon this time. It was a quick run, but we still managed to find some good stuff.
I used the sites I mentioned last week, and also looked through the classifieds myself and found a ton of sales. I mapped them out in google, printed off the description of the garage sales and the route, then we picked and chose what we wanted based on how much time we had left. It worked out well!
Here's some of the stuff I got this time:
