Kik-Step Library Stool

I've wanted a rolling library stool just about forever (having no idea how much a Kik-Step stool actually costs!) This well-worn yard sale version was $1. Now I can reach those upper pantry shelves without unfolding our stepladder.

(Or, trying something dangerous--I recently broke a vase while using a broom handle to knock down some vacuum bags!)

Not many fun finds the last two weeks--I am saving my mad money for a church sale next week.

Hey! My mom had one of those while I was growing up. Thanks for the brief nostalgia moment!

Like Jenn, that gave me an awesome nostalgia moment, my grandma had one of those. :)

i've wanted one too, ever since we started hanging out in the library while the toddler of the family pushed one around as a prelude to walking.

maybe your post will scare up a source of these at a better price.

hurrah for your find!

Just wanted to tell you I've discovered your blog and I LOVE it, my new favorite. I've been checking in every day.

That is what I miss about my 6 foot 3 inch son. I now have to use a step stool. Now the food bills don't miss those.

Oh, that is a very cool find!

I just use one of two things to reach stuff: my old Mickey Mouse step stool that I used as a child to reach the sink to brush my teeth, or my 6'2" hubby!

I know someone that bought one at a School Board surplus sale. Came right out of a school library. Only cost a couple bucks. Our community has a surplus sale a few times a year. Great finds

Amen to having the tall man around! I often wait to unload the dishwasher or get out the griddle until my 6'3" husband is around to reach up for those seldom-used items on the top shelf.
