I was quite excited with this week’s yard sale deals. I spent about an hour and a half total between two sub-wide sales. I ended up spending $12.25 on the above items. I calculated an approximate value of $165 new. The best part is half of the items where actually still new.
The largest share of my excitement centers around this item.
It is one of my most loved and used kitchen tools. My Whirley Pop! I use ours nearly every night to make my favorite popcorn (recipe here) for the family (or honestly for me to enjoy alone after everyone else is in bed). In fact when we travel to the cabin we take our popper along back and forth with us. So, guess where this one will live? That’s right, the cabin.
These retail for about $20+. I picked this one up for $4. It is brand new, never used, paperwork included inside. This one was stamped for Crate and Barrel, but the paperwork was the standard Whirley Pop papers.
I think this is my next favorite deal of the day.
A 4 piece, Food Network, 12 quart pasta/steamer set (similar to this one). It was new in box, with a price tag of $80. I paid just $3!!
I happened upon a sale at the home of a Starbucks employee. So I lucked out on some new products, with tags.
I have been wanting an insulated container like this so that my son can take warm leftovers to school on occasion. This insulated stainless steel bowl and spoon set had a price tag of $17. I picked it up for $2.
I really love acrylic cups. I use them ALL the time. They typically come in one standard size. But this one caught my eye because it was smaller than most. It’s a Starbucks cold cup tumbler. Perfect for our little girl. This was new with a tag of $10. I paid $0.75.
Then there were a couple 2 tablespoon (coffee) scoops. I picked these up to live in my canisters. New plastic scoops can run up to $5. I paid $0.25 each. Who cares if they have Christmas cutouts on them? Not me.
The next item I picked up because I felt a need for it in order to bake two batches of brownies at a time 🙂
An 8×8 Pyrex baking dish. These run around $15 new. I paid $1.50. Totally worth the investment in order to facilitate double batches of sweets!
And last but not least, because it was put to use at a ball game just hours after it’s purchase.
A Nalgene 32 oz water bottle. Our son was in great need of a larger water bottle for baseball games and practice. I’d estimate retail of about $13. I picked it up for just $0.50.
In addition to the food items, I picked up an Otter Box for use on his boat, a Thirty-One Utility bag for myself, and a bunch of clothes for the kids. All in all, a good hunt.
