The makeup was a good buy for some cheap stuff to start with.

We had just bought ace bandages recently. If only we had held out a bit longer.

BACKSTORY: Got up around ~7:50AMish, made it out driving by 8:45 and went out until 12:53 PM (stopping at McDonald's for soft serve and The Dollar Store, so we got home at 1:47) for a total of 4 hours. Spent $80.70 plus ~$4.62 gas for 50.2 miles of driving (27.5 mpg @ $2.53/G), for a total cost of $85.32. We drove to 20 yard sales, stopping at 12 (60%) of them. We made 59 purchases (118 items) for a total estimated value of $557.27, leading to a profit/savings of $476.57. So in essence, we multiplied our $80.70 investment by 6.91. (Also, if you think about it, the profit counts for even more when you consider that we have to earn $543.22 on the job, pre-tax, in order to take home the $476.57 in cash that we saved. How long does $543.22 of disposable income take to earn, vs the 4 hrs we spent here?). Anyway, this works out to a *post-tax* "wage" of $95.31/hr as a couple or $47.66/hr per person.
