The Great Giveaway

Having kids will put anyone in the mindset of looking for a good bargain at anytime of the year, which is why I found this article (The Best Things to Buy in May) from to be very interesting. It's also why lifehacker happens to be one of my favorite sites to visit.

Some of these tips I already knew, like buying a house (or in our case, selling our house) and thrift items (spring cleaning, of course).

The list includes (spoiler alert!):
  • Televisions and other electronics
  • Houses
  • Cookware and Kitchen Accessories
  • Digital Cameras (something I should have done)
  • Thrift items
  • Vacuum cleaners
  • Office Furniture
  • Mattresses
  • Refrigerators
There is one that they haven't mentioned: Yard sales. If you live in more affluent neighborhoods, you would be surprised on what and how much people sell. I've gotten some new-looking baby supplies and a couple of decent bikes from yard sales.

If only I had seen this article first before I bought my camera, I may have put it off to see if I can get a better deal elsewhere.
