Here are a few things we picked up lately.
The Spencinator was the first to spy this one and was begging us to buy it before we even got out of the car:
I couldn't believe they were selling a huge Lego Star Wars set for just $1.00! Of course we had to get it.
Some of the pieces were still in the original packaging. There wasn't an instruction booklet, but that's not a problem. There are a couple of websites out there (such as letsbuilditagain.com and worldbricks.com) where you can plug in the Lego set number and download that set's instructions for free.We picked up a couple of things for the Babes too:
She also got a bunch of the Rainbow Magic Fairies books to add to her collection.
The Ocean Fairies, The Pet Fairies, The Sports Fairies, The Jewel Fairies, The Weather Fairies, The Rainbow Fairies (these are the first ones out of all the series), The Petal Fairies, The Fun Day Fairies, The Music Fairies, The Magical Animal Fairies, The Dance Fairies, The Party Fairies, The Green Fairies, The Night Fairies, The Princess Fairies (to be released on August 1st 2012), The Showtime Fairies, The Pop Star Fairies
All of the above mentioned sets contain 7 books per set for a total of 119 books
Below are the special edition books which are not part of a set, and are longer.
Natalie the Christmas Stocking Fairy, Gabriella the Snow Kingdom Fairy, Chrissie the Wish Fairy, Holly the Christmas Fairy, Cheryl the Christmas Tree Fairy, Stella the Star Fairy, Paige the Christmas Play Fairy, Cara the Camp Fairy, Florence the Friendship Fairy, Trixie the Halloween Fairy, Flora the Fancy Dress Fairy, Kylie the Carnival Fairy, Destiny the Rock Star Fairy, Selena the Sleepover Fairy, Shannon the Ocean Fairy,
Summer the Holiday Fairy, Kate the Royal Wedding Fairy, Emma the Easter Fairy, Belle the Birthday Fairy, Juliet the Valentine Fairy, Mia the Bridesmaid Fairy, Olympia the Games Fairy, Keira the Film Star Fairy, Joy the Summer Vacation Fairy, Elizabeth the Jubilee Fairy (this title has not be released yet)
OK, I did not know there were that many. They've come out with some new sets and new special editions since Sweetie Pie first discovered these books. I don't think she'll ever get the complete collection considering how many there are (144) and the fact that they seem to keep publishing new sets.

I've found that the cheapest place to get them (other than at a yard sale) is through the school's scholastic book club. I've been able to find the sets for about $15 and the individual books for $4, while the special editions are $7.
We also got something not for the kids. A Magellan GPS with bluetooth for only $5.00. Now we'll have a GPS for each car.
What good bargains have you picked up at yard sales recently?
