10 bucks!

You could probably sit and make a huge list of things you could buy for $10 bucks. I wanted to share with you all what I did with my ten bucks on my daily morning walk with the boys.

I stopped at garage sale #1 and I bought a decorative bowl for my new scrapbooking corner in the kitchen, a 12 inch and a 14 inch stainless steel skillets with the lids and a salad master that also had the hand rotary grater from pampered chef. That grand total came to $3.00.


Then I stopped at garage sale #2 and I ought 2 ice cube trays, a 4qt stainless steel pot w/ the lid, a vintage hand painted tea set for one, a 4 qt stainless steel mixing bowl, an adorable green pitcher and a tall chair with a back that swivels for my new scrapbooking corner. (The chair was my most exciting find of the day) I bought all of this for $7.00!





I immediately thought of you, and took some pictures of my finds. Called my best friend Layla (who was coming over to scrapbook that evening any way) and bragged to her about my new chair.

























































The boys and I are going to go swimming at a local park today with Layla and her little sister. DW is busy doing extra roof jobs for the next 4 or so weekends. Bummer, but you gotta do what you gotta do, huh!
I have won 2 auctions items this week and hoping to win 2 others by tonight. We shall see.


Have a great weekend and God Bless, Christina
