Free Martha Stewart Living Magazine Subscription

Hurry and sign up for a free 1 year subscription to Martha Stewart Living magazine!

Until recently my husband thought I was paying for all the magazine subscriptions that come to our house. Not true! I like to take advantage of all the free magazine subscriptions I find. I love to read magazines for the recipes and tips. They're also great for crafts. When they're free I won't hesitate to let my little ones cut them up when I'm done.

Thanks Money Saving Mom!

My Facebook Resale Shop

I recently started a home-based business on Facebook. It all started when I read Yard Sale Mommy's blog post about consignment sales. I had never heard of a consignment sale but I knew I could find lots of items to sell out of my boys' closets. I also picked up some nice things from some recent yard sales. Next, I looked up the nearest consignment sale in my area through Consignment Mommies. I pressed, hung, and tagged all my items before hauling them to next town over for the sale. It was a small consignment sale and I didn't sell nearly as much as I had hoped. That's when I started thinking about other ways to sell my items. I found one other person in my small town selling children's stuff on Facebook and knew I could do the same. I set to work right away setting up a page on Facebook. I started the page at the end of August and since then have sold over 200 items! I now offer consignment services and have hand-crafted items for sale too. I'm excited to be shipping items as well. So if you're on Facebook check out my page and tell me what you think! Thanks!

Friday Finds

Most garage sales in my area start on Saturday but you can catch a few on Friday too. I love Friday sales because that means it's one less sale I need to squeeze in on Saturday morning. The boys and I were headed to the park so I stopped at a few yard sales on the way. Look what I found...

It's Squawkers!

As soon as I saw this parrot I knew it was FurReal's Squawkers. I paid $7 for him even though he was missing his cracker and perch. Check out what he sells for on eBay. He sells for even more with his perch and cracker.

I picked up the game for my little dinosaur lover. I don't usually pay so much for a board game ($2) especially when the box is in bad shape but I thought the dinosaur figures were so cute. I only found one auction for them on eBay.
