Know What You’re Looking For
In order to get the best deals, know what you’re looking for. The Complete Tales of Beatrix Potter has been on my wish list for a while now. When I found it for $0.99, I grabbed it without hesitation. On that book alone, I saved $21.99.
When you’re browsing online and see a book you want, make a note of it. The next time you’re out and about, keep your eyes open for those titles on your wish list.

Thrift Shops & Yard Sales
Get some of your favorite titles without cleaning out your bank account. Check your local thrift stores and yard sales. I was amazed at the titles I found hidden on the shelves. And I didn’t skimp on quality. Every single book I purchased was in excellent condition.

Don’t get discouraged if you don’t find anything on your first visit. With some patience, you’ll soon catch some amazing deals. Not all thrift stores are a cluttered mess. I was pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness and organization I found in most of the stores I shopped at. Although the books are not ordered by categories, with a little patience you’ll be able to find some gems.

Look For Good Quality Books
You’ll find an array of choices at thrift stores and yard sales. Don’t waste your money. The point is not to fill your shelves with fluff. You can do that for free with your library card. In order to get your money’s worth, look for literature that is rich- books that can grow with your child. Look for the classics like Little House on the Prairie, Charlotte’s Web, and Black Beauty. These stories never get old.
