Hunting for Bargains at the Swap Meet
This weekend my friend and I went to the Swap Meet together. She goes pretty often with her mom, and I've been wanting to check it out. We paid our admission of 75 cents and then perused the aisles of...mostly junk. Well, actually there was a lot of good stuff, I just wasn't in the market for housewares or clothes. But, I did spend $6 on the following grocery items. I got toothpaste, Propel lemonade packets, an eyeliner, and a sulfate-free conditioner. I calculate that these items would have cost about $13 at the regular store, so I definitely got a good deal.
I think the Swap Meet could be a good way to get some deals, though I definitely did pass up some more impulsive buys there. Anyone else been to the Swap Meet? Was it worth your time?
