With the World's Largest Yard Sale happening at the Herkimer County Fairgrounds this Saturday, I thought I would share with you the best items to buy at a yard sale. You'll save the most money on these items, plus there is nothing wrong with these things being reused.

    Toys for Kids

    Anything from those outdoor play houses, to Legos, to power-wheels, and everything in between. You can save hundreds of dollars buying these items at a yard sale.

    Exercise Equipment

    A new treadmill, exercise bike, or weights can get pretty expensive, but if you pick up a used one at a yard sale you can save a ton of money!

    Household Decorations

    You can pick up Christmas decorations in the middle of summer and save a lot of money. Or other 'everyday' decorations like vases and picture frames - all cheaper than if you bought it brand-new at the store.

    Power Tools

    Brand-new power tools are a lot of money. You can get used ones at a yard sale pretty cheap.

    This is number one on this list for a reason. You can pick up candles that have never been used (or used once or twice), for less than a dollar. That same candle brand-new at the store could be almost ten dollars. Candles are the biggest steal you can get at any yard sale.
