 Have you ever bought something and thought, “now that was a steal!” Well, according to Yahoo! News some bargain hunter got lucky at  a yard sale and bought the Breitling Top Time watch, worn by Sean Connery, in ThunderballAnd just how much did they pay? Sources say it was less than $40 bucks! Can you imagine that??   The buyer who wishes to remain anonymous is now selling the prized gem at a Christie’s auction next month, which is expected to go for about $90,000.

It’s just not fair.

Here I was thinking, no one can beat me at a Barney’s sample sale or even closing time at Sparro pizza but once again, I have been proven wrong.

But watch out extreme couponers cause it’s about to get ugly. After reading this story, I’ve now decided to start checking out yard sales.
