Yard Sale Down The Street
I just ran to the yard sale down the street. I paid 25 cents apiece for the Tupperware lidded containers, and 5 cents each for the 15 oz spouted ones. (Does anyone know exactly what they're used for? Salad dressings?) Pretty soon I will have a whole kitchen full of bulk items stored in Tupperware, just as I read Emilie Barnes organized hers. The owner also threw in a huge bag of realistic insects for a nickel. Won't these be fun crawling all over a platter of chocolate cupcakes? Sterilized first, of course! My son scavenged the couch cushions before leaving and spent his 25 cents on 5 nickel toys. She had so many, I'm thinking of sending my husband to pick out a selection for post-baby surprises for Andrew. Cheaper than a Happy Meal!
