Yard Sale Bargains--all this for under $23!!

Until today I've only been to maybe 4 yard sales all season.  I've just not have cash on me to spend.
I was thrilled last night when my daughter told me that  a lot of the sales were advertising craft things.  She asked if I had any money and if I wanted to go with them.

We left this morning just before 8 am.  We hit about 20 or so sales and got home about 12:30 pm.  It was really hot by then.

Here is my haul:
 Dora sheet and pillowcase for $2 (will be turned into fabric bags) and a large box of fabric--$2!!
 Photo album still in wrapper--$1  Skirt  .25
 $2 for a box of shiny fabric and fine netting.  Also had a mirror and 2 roses in the box.
 $5 for this box of fabric.  Individual prices came to over $10
 $1 for this box full of fabric.  Some nice pieces in here!
 $1 for this box of soft material (I will use it on the inside of a quilt) $1 for a yard total of fabric.
 Pantyhose for .10, pillowcase for .25, flip flops for .25 and a blanket for $1
 3 curtain panels .50 each (these will also be made in to fabric bags)  Scott Foresman 3rd grade science set for $1, Science puzzles book .25, Math on the Moon set .25, and Oregon Trail 5th edition still in wrapper for .25
soft material for .75 (going to put this inside a lap quilt) bag of hair accessories for .10, and a thread container, including thread and such for $1

Not pictured is 3 Garden magazines and 7 Mardi Gras necklaces at .10 each .  She charged me .90 instead of $1.

All this for a total of $22.85!!!   Can we say that now I really need to concentrate on finding time for my crafting?  I know I can.   
I already had enough supplies to keep me busy for about 3 years....now it's 4 or 5 years.

I had so much fun.  Now, where am I going to stash this stuff?  My oldest granddaughter, Ariel, says in my craft room corner.  I told her that corner is already stuffed.
