Yard Sale Finds– Contest #1

If you’re a long time reader, you may remember past posts where I share a picture of a morning’s worth of yard sales finds and you get to guess how much I paid. This time around I’ve decided to give actual prizes. The two people who guess closest to the price that I actually paid for these items will get one-month trial memberships to Netflix.com, a service that my family has had for quite awhile now. We just love it. So check out my picture, give your best, most-educated guess, and I’ll announce the winners on Friday.

This week’s haul of loot included two *large* boxes full of quart and pint canning jars, a couple of 10×13 picture frames, two nice life jackets (one NWT), 1 pair of jeans for my 3 year old, 3 pair of capris for my 5 year old, one pair of spotless new Levi Strauss jeans for me, one striped blouse for me, 1 each jeans, capris, shorts, and skirt for my 10 year old daughter, 6 excellent quality name brand shirts for my 10 and 12 year old daughters, 2 t-shirts for my hubby, and 3 t-shirts and a fleece jacket for my 13 and 16 year old sons. Oh, and the adorable red polka dot mesh bag at the top of the picture. That’s 27 items PLUS a whole mess of canning jars.

So what’s your guess?
