Well, here was my thinking-outside-the-box moment. Our town just held school board elections last Tuesday. Over the past couple of weeks, I'd noticed the bandit signs appearing in the ground around town promoting the candidates. I realized that I had seen these signs just left out to rot after elections in previous years, never collected back up by the political teams. I then went out around town a couple hours after the elections ended and picked up all the signs that I had taken note of. I've seen a couple more that I didn't notice before in the past week.
Now, I'll just cover the signs with green neon posterboard and make up my "We Buy Houses" signs. The political signs were 18" x 24", so I can cut the signs in half and I won't need as much posterboard on each sign!
The cost for all this? Gas to drive around, posterboard, some tape, and a marker!
