Yard Sales today were pretty amazing...one of those overwhelming days when there were so many I could have stayed out forever! Best find? A large mirror (about3X4 ft) to go in the upstairs bath--white wood trim-$2.50. Abby found a vintage Star Wars poster that we hung in her brother's room to surprise him, since he's having a hard day. Got 4 movies for a buck each, 4 pairs of shorts for the boys, 50 cents each, a Gund Winnie the Pooh for 75cents, the cutest cross stitch for the bath in Maine for 75 cents, and several like new college textbooks for a dollar each that I hope to get considerably more for at Edward McKay.
Have you been getting your freebies in the mail? In the last few days I got the coupon for free sunchips, the uniball pen, puffs, kotex and bounce samples and a shampoo rebate check. It makes getting the bills a little easier! For those of you who are new to this, you should know that you won't get everything you sign up for. I don't stress over it anymore...it's just the way it is!
Not much shopping for me this week, just the $94.00 trip to Aldi. That was it. Didn't even get to the drugstores, too much going on. The lettuce is up in the garden and we'll try to get everything else in this week.
Meals this week: homemade pizza, spaghetti, ham/taters, tomato soup, burgers on the grill (first of the season). I just love the nostalgia posts. If you get the blog by email, take the time to read what others' frugal memories are. You have until Sunday night to be in the running for a copy of my book!
And speaking of my book...I now have copies to sell. They are $10.00 which includes shipping. The publishers price is $11.99 ( I have no say on that), but right now amazon has it for $10.19 and Barnes and Noble for $8.63. These are sale prices, so this is your chance to get a good deal! Online only...S&H free on $25 orders. I would love for you to get a copy and support Larry and ToKhanh's dream of getting the book out to other veterans. The title is Twice a Soldier.
Have a great weekend!
