10 dollars for a 22 year old cereal box!? Sign me up…
Yard sales. The closest thing you and I have to an actual working barter system in 2017 (and no, you can’t count that time you traded your neighbor 5 old DVD’s with Kurt Russell in them for a fresh roll of TP). It’s a great way to get things you’ve always coveted for cheap! Maybe even less than nothing if you’ve found the right sale…and that’s always a score. Of course, many people look for a variety of things.
But you don’t have to be into Christmas themed mer-man action figures with their nipples pierced to get your money’s worth. If you’re looking for a solid gold toilet seat on the discount, yard sales are probably your only option. If it’s something a bit more practical, your chances exponentially increase when in comes to finding what you want/need.
And if you want to see more WTF things people have pulled out of yard sales…pop on over to Reddit’s thread on all things OMG in the yard sale world.
