CONGRATS TO ALL THE FABBY WINNERS OF TODAY'S WONDERFUL PRIZES!!!!
Today was adventurous and fun for my budget minded self....I got low worked early and ran some errands before heading home...Decided to run to HL to check on Turkey Day stamp, but since was last min decision, didn't have this weeks coupon....Dang....but a nice lady gave me hers since she didn't find what she wanted....WhooooHoooo Thx nice lady!!! I got the Sizzix pointsettia die for 40% off.....Then heading home, I spy a very well loved (read-missing parts) 3 swing with glider swing set sitting on someones curb for trash pick up....OMG....I'm needing an A frame to make trellis for garden....Do you know what lumber costs these days???....So I slammed on the brakes and backed up....jumped out to check it out, looked around, then pushed, pulled, shoved and lifted that thing into the back of my truck...hopefully before anyone saw me curbside shopping.....YeeHa!!! Yes, I'm a hick...but hey, it keeps it out of the landfill.....and money in my pocket....Yea!! more stamps.....See, there is a method to my madness.....lol!!!
Nothing wrong with repurposing!
Last week I saw a really nice IKEA unit waiting for pickup - it matched the pieces I have in my craft room and is a discontinued collection so I was PSUCHED. I opened all the drawers and inspected it - nothing wrong with it, NO idea why they didn't want it anymore, called hubby to ask him to swing by their house on the way home - not more than 10 minutes later a van with a handicapped plate stopped, driver inspected it and LIFTED IT INTO THE BACK OF HER VAN (ummmm, guess her hubby is the one with the disability? LOL! I would not have been able to lift that and I was told I didn't qualify for the hang tag.) Had to call hubby back and tell him not to bother, wasn't available anymore, LOL!
