June junkin' under $20

I may have a problem....

Not many people know this but I am addicted to Junking. I have to force my self to keep driving when I see a yard sale. Which is one of the reasons I started Junkin under $20. I had set a limit because I buy wayyy too much stuff.

Case in point, why do I need all these empty canisters?? It all started when I was on a hunt for Khromex brand canisters and I got a pair close to what I wanted on day one. But then I kept finding them and had to have them all.
So now I have set myself to a under $20 a month limit (until I can sell some stuff and empty out my storage room). So here is my Junkin' under $20 for June.
On June 2nd it was yardsale day and I didn't go far from home due to the kids had a birthday to go to. Yet I did find all of this great stuff right down the road.

 I got the Theadore, 4 tins and another elf guy at a yard sale for all for 25 cents each. Lily loves the chipmunks and I have a thing for tins. Then I went to a storage room of a man that re-sellls things he finds at yard and lot sales. I didn't find anything but a record, oldly enough it was The Urban Chipmunk. I died! Two great things together. He had a buck each on the boxes of records but gave me that one for free! Then on the way home I see and Estate sale sign on the road I live on. So I stopped by, it was very odd. I have never been to an estate sale before. I talked to the lady, seeing how she was pretty much a neighbor to me, she said she was just selling everything to remodel her home. They even had thier current home phone for sale. But I didn't see much there so I picked up the paintings of the three girls for 25 cents. Then as I left I saw this old dryer going in a goodwill box and asked if it worked. She found a plug and it came on like it was used yesterday.

Later that week my youngest son had an appointment " in town" and we stopped by Goodwill on the way home, I found an apple green pyrex pie dish that didn't look to well but fair for the price and these sweet chairs!
Needless to say they are currently in the room with me but they are stacked up not being used yet. :(
I hope to find a good spot for them tonight and then use them like they should be. Well that's all for this month. Happy Junkin'!

  1. I buy every hair dryer that I find at garage sales for a reasonable price (under $3). The last one I bought for $1 and hubby keeps gushing about how I am so thrifty. Our old one had just died and we normally keep one for backup so am still on the lookout for another one. Great finds. Still waiting on derby pics!

  2. I have a tin problem! I buy tins wherever I see them!

  3. I Break For Yard Sales...That was the license plate bracket I always wanted to get my mom and now I break for yard sales lol! Guess you can say I learned if from her! I would love to have your chairs for my patio. They are fantastic! Great deals! Thanks for joining us at Cap Creations.
