And Then There Was One

I went out in the middle of the night to check on the two remaining chickens. The little one was gone. There were no feathers, almost like she was spirited away. After spending thirty minutes in the pen, searching for her and for a breach--nothing! Obviously, this carnage happened at dusk, not dawn.

My friend has been helping me sort and organize food in the kitchen. She moved a bookcase in the kitchen for more items. When I get my photo system on the computer or ipad, I will post the bookcase with a little gingham curtain over the front. Of course, I put the curtain up with no hardware, the cheap way. The curtain only cost a quarter, Martha Stewart, and from a yard sale.

Yard sales are everywhere on the weekends. But, this year, I have only stopped at one. When the woman yelled to get out of the car because everything was $1, I just kept going. I like quarter items!

Your turn
What is your summer find at a cheap price?

  1. My best find this summer was a free find (doesn't get cheaper than that) Our neighborhood has a FB page and one of the neighbors had a little girl kitchen free for the pickup. My granddaughter is about to be 2 and doesn't visit often, but I do like to have things for her to play with when she is here. This only required 1 screw and it was as good as new. Now if Pip will just come to Alabama...

  2. Anne,
    Free is the best kind of bargain! I do hope she will come to AL Her parents will have a hard time prying her away. soon. I have found all sorts of "food" for these play kitchens. A few years ago, I found baking quality play pans with the rolled edge. I paid a quarter for the two.

    1. The cooler weather will make me more likely to stop at a yard sale.

  4. I got ink cartridges for my printer for $2 each, they are normally $20. Yard sales are about over in my neck of the woods. It is getting cold. Yuck. Now I need to start working on reorganizing the kids rooms.

    1. Sonya Ann,
      That is a real steal on cartridges. It may take me forever to reorganize around here. I will be looking forward to those posts from you.
