Frugal Friday

Tip for today:  Shop for great used children's books at library sales.  Plan to take some time, money, and a box.  Look up the libraries in your area and ask when their book sales are scheduled.  Often, they will also keep a cart or a room in which they will keep the books until the sale.  I have found that if you just ask, they will let you in to see the books and purchase any that you may find.  My son came home a few weeks ago with a large stack of books that he purchased for only $5!  Usually they will only charge 25 cents for paperbacks and $1 for hardbacks.
