Happy Late 4th of July!
No one is home right now.. all is quiet here.. my daughter went to the Ocean and my hubby and son went to the movies... I was "instructed" to do what I wanted and NO housework... you know.. sometimes you can get the best stuff cleaned out with no other family members.
So I decided to take a minute and blog! I really don't have an awful lot to say today so I decided to share my yardsale finds from yesterday ( and one from last week).. and my STAPLES deals! It's hard to believe in the beginning of July they are already doing school supply sales (remember we got out in late June..19th to be exact)
Last weekend.. believe it or not.. I bought a laptop for $40.00 . It is a Dell and it comes with a fan, powercord, and everything you need to run it... it works BEAUTIFULLY.. Now I have to take the time to get wireless.. ( I'm probably the last person on earth to do that!!). Funny thing I hmmd and hawwed.. about buying it.. cause you know... you're not so sure of the details... Well, out walks the principal of my daughters school... it belonged to his son.. so he guaranteed me that if didn't work... he would take it back!! I said SOLD!
I also go these pink pyrex bowls...
And a few vintage lines ( one behind them) that I was tickled about...
This week.. I got these items along with a few other things... ( like a sap bucket to plant flowers in and a few toys)
I love the snowman... he is pretty much brand new.. and I got him for $2.00. The white mixing bowls ( I'm a sucker for mixing bowls) were $3.00 for the pair... The basket with the liner was $1.00 and the little blue dish that MATCHES my dishes I bought last weekend was FREE! A gal came seconds before me and snatched a bowl that I didn't have... but it's all fair in the game of yard sailing!!
These bowls use to belong to a stand mixer I believe...
Here's what I got a Staples this morning.. hubby and I HAD to be two separate orders or they would jack the prices up... oh well...
I got 8 plastic note book holders
4 packages of pencils
4 little Purel's
GRAND TOTAL for ONE SET
YUP.. $1.14!! Can't go wrong.. Now I'm waiting for each week to see what they put on "penny" sale! I like to stock up for the whole school year! ( I still have some left overs from last year.... )
Well.. I'm off to go and read! Enjoy the sun we have now.. Hope your weekend was GOOD!
