I was able to go to my Wednesday sale at the Salvation Army today... 50% off everything in the store makes it part of my budget. I go as often as my money will allow, and in normal times that is usually once a month. Now that I am receiving early retirement funds from Social Security, I am able to explore the "white elephants" ( I think that's what they are called... ) of other people. It is great to see what other people once owned, and I love trying to figure out what something is when it's something I have never seen before.
Today I found a small little crepe making pan... and I had to go over my planned budget of $10 just to buy it... after the discount, it cost me about $2.25. It kept "calling to me" because I have been wanting to try crepes more, and it is just the right size. It's real name is "Crepe Magician" and it is made by Popeil. I think it is old. It looks old. It also looks cared for. So, I am hoping it will make great crepes when I find a good recipe for them.
I discovered a number of great items that made my heart glad. It is my version of a big shopping day. I spent a total of $13.64 -- and had enough left of my $20 to get household items like shampoo, toothpaste, etc.
Unfortunately, the day was too hard on my body. Right now I am not able to continue writing. I will try to finish this post in the morning, and get my Thursday post done then... maybe on Crafts. I am changing to a Monday through Thursday blogging schedule... just haven't figured out what to do about my many topic goals.
See you then. Deb
