    I just got back from a garage sale that a speech path was having. She had tons of PECS and Boardmaker materials made up that she was selling, step by step picture recipes, task charts, behavior charts, classroom decorations, board maker lesson books, cd's, picture bingo games, etc. I got a large shopping bag filled with stuff for $14.75! :woot::woot: It was worth well over $200! I am so excited, I had to tell someone who would appreciate my find! My hubby just looks at stuff and says more crap in the house. It is not crap, it is gold!! :lol:

    I love SLP stuff! I'm always borrowing things for her room and asking the principal if I can order from her catalogs!

    I LOVE getting puzzles and other little knick knacks from garage sales. I have built up my homemade ABLLS-R assessment kit from garage sales.

    Wish I could find an SLP garage sale to go to!!!

    You guys should have been around San Antonio, TX during the Summer of 2008!

    I seriously probably gave away about $2000 worth of stuff. My husband and I were moving to NJ and we would have needed another trailer to haul my teaching stuff. LOL.

    I "sold" it, but really it was "giving it away." I also had made a ton of weighted vests (made my own pattern and everything... filled the pockets with clay....!) and people loved those. Also had a ton of TEACCH work systems (matching velcro cards for work bins, etc.) and those were a big hit.

    I sent all of the art stuff to my niece and nephews in Illinois.

    Dang, I wish I hadn't gotten rid of that stuff and we'd have gotten the extra trailer... :)
