Coach bags go for $45 dollars here in MN at garage sales, so cudos on the 12 dollar one. Glad to know somebody who puts on a garage sale isn't greedier than tho.

I think my apartment would look so nice with a few rugs in it. I have a tile cement kitchen floor and hardwood floor bedrooms.

Thrift Sales
Sunday, September 18, 2011 | By begonia

The thrift saling season is ending here in southern Wisconsin as well. There were only three of them in town this weekend. (Most of my deals this week have been on clothing and jewelry.) I hit a sale two weeks ago where the free box was better than the sale! I often find winterizing kits and materials for windows in free boxes. Begonia

Fantastic Recipe

This is such an easy recipe. And the pickles and onions are delicious. I'm not an onion person and I have been putting these on hamburgers and looking for more ways to enjoy them.

The name "spam" for junk email was inspired by the Monty Python SPAM skit. Much of the joke in that skit was ridiculous repetition.

Welcome Back

Good to see you back. I check My Frugal Life from time to time to see if you have posted lately. Glad to hear that you have been working.

I junk picked a mountain bike in good condition last month and handed it off to one of my sons who lives in Minneapolis so that he would have a cheap way of getting around and for exercise. It's the urban thing to do up there. Minneapolis has topped Seattle in bike friendliness. (They even clear the urban bike paths in the winter!) Both my boys are urbanites.

My husband recently built me a raised bed with the telephone poles I scavenged last year. There are pictures on my site if you are interested.

I also picked up a really nice floor lamp to replace one that had a short. That shorted lamp was a favorite of my daughters writers' group because they like the feel of the little hum it had in it's base. Teens! I gave it to a friend that make steam punk lamps and jewelry to use for her next creation.

You should try typing your blogs as Word docs and copy and pasting into them into the post window--or were you already doing that? I like to have a couple of backups of the stuff that I post just in case something weird happens. It is a terrible frustration to lose your writing because it never comes out the same twice, and if you try it is never the same.

Take Care Begonia
