A couple months ago my son started asking for a new bike, but not just any bike he wanted a bmx bike. We started looking at garage sales and the thrift stores but we never found the kind he really wanted. Finally, after waiting all Summer we found "the bike" for $4.99 at a local Goodwill. Sold!! The savings by not buying a new buy the same kind of bike we bought would have cost us over $100!!

Wow congradulations. My son was the same way and I couldn't afford a bike this summer. I told him to wait and I promise to get him one next year, Well he one one from school and now is a believer that the best things comes to those who wait.

That is awesome! I always try to keep a running list in my head of things like that that we either need or someone really wants. It really helps save money.
