My sweet sister and I went to an indoor yard sale, which parents of children who went to a private school put on to raise funds. I found a well made wicker laundry basket for $5, 2 nice shirts for $2 ea, makeup/travel bag for .25, and 10 terracotta pot risers for $3. We also went to a thrift store I'd heard about, and I found a canister to make a compost crock from for $5 and a good sized pottery plant pot for $4. I'd been looking for floral wine glasses, which my sister requested for her birthday, and I found 4/$4, which I gifted her along with her other presents. At the discount grocery store, I got 3L tins of olive oil for $10, 25# organic jasmine rice for $25 ($70.93 on amazon), 20# sunflower seeds for $5 and other deals. J & I enjoyed dinner and music with two other couples. There was no cover for the music, though we each made a donation, and J used a $40 gift card towards our meal. We don't often do much socially, and it was a fun night. Today I've put a pot of beans to cook on the woodstove, mixed up a batch of whole wheat chocolate chip cookies, and made asian slaw to take to a gathering. Wishing you a week of things that bring happiness!
