It’s the end of the year so we’re all feeling nostalgic. Especially when these PennySaver memories take us waaaay back. It’s good to know that PennySaver is always there and now, we’re excited to ring in 2011 and become not just the favorite source of local classifieds, but the best online classifieds site with PennySaverUSA.com.
Sit back and enjoy these wonderful stories of how the PennySaver has influenced our readers time after time. Here are our favorite memories from years and years ago that our readers have been kind enough to share with us.
When I moved to CA from NYC, I furnished my entire one bedroom from garage sales in 3 weekends. It was a ritual that I read through the Pennysaver every Wed. and mapped out 2-3 cities for my Sat. morning hunt. I would start out at 6:30am and even had to wait for owners to start the sale. It was so much fun and I found so many good deals, especially the moving sales. You have to hit them first. I also learned to haggle. My current complex holds annual garage sales and there are people waiting outside my garage before I open my garage door. It brings back memories of my earlier days! And I offer great deals! -Buena Park, CA
Back in the early 80′s my cousin was looking for a puppy. We looked through the Pennysaver and found an ad “puppies free to loving home”. We went and he found his puppy, but I too fell in love with the runt of the litter. She was a beautiful golden brown and was part Doberman Pinscher and part German Shepard. Needless to say, I came home with my very own puppy too. -Fullerton, CA
I remember seeing an ad in the PennySaver in September of 2002. There was a living room set, couch, loveseat, 2 end tables, coffee table, and 2 lamps all for $100. At this time, I had just moved into my first apartment and I was only 17 years old. I barely had enough money to do that with no job and all. The items were magnificent. I still look for items every week for my apartment. I also sell items becuase I know PennySaver is the best classified magazine out there! -Oak Park, CA
