Cases of clear plastic bags like the stores use I won 3 sizes but 4 cases totaling 2,300 bags. I found the price of one case for $ 50.00 so we will assume this was $200.00 worth of bags. I paid $23.00. Anyone need some bags?
Total winnings not counting the buyers premium was $107.54 for a total of $330.00 worth of merchandise. SCORE!
Since I have been doing so many smaller crafts I am hoping to sale the bags will come in handy for packaging.

Honestly, I would rather bid on the auctions than play the lottery this way I always win something.
Well, I was pretty excited this week at my auction wins.

I love auctions the thrill of bidding for a week and finally winning something or deciding there was something you were bidding on that went for more than you wanted to pay.
Just watch yourself because its sort of like gambling it can be quite addictive.
Go to this site Auction Site and put in your zip code and the distance you want to travel. I am sure you will find something in your area.
Last weekend I won 67 boxes of ice packs some were 8ct some were 12 ct part of them were therapeutic Polar Pack for sprains, arthritis etc. the rest were the kinds to keep medication cold or to use in a lunch box by U- Tek. They were all the flat kind. My cost was $20.00 the boxes took up the entire truck bed plus double stacking.
I won 4- 3M soap dispensers and 5 bottles of antibacterial soap for $16.00. It looks like the dispensers are worth $50.00 and the soap $23.00. We will use two outside one by the barn and greenhouse and I will share the others. I even won some extra soap for these.
A case of ZEP antibacterial soap hand cleaner for $12.00 they were quart size and there were 12 bottles.
I won the younger grandkids a set of 3 balls soccer, football and basketball they were youth size but I got them for $10.00.
A few other odds and ends but needless to say I was quite pleased with my winnings for the week. My husband, on the other hand, seems to think I am crazy because I won the ice packs. I am giving many away to family and friends but I am going to also sell some of them and make a little profit from them.
This was my third time to do this auction in the last 7 months.
Look for auctions near you sometimes you will find some really great things.
