Our toaster quit working. My husband suggested we order one. I said I wanted to take the week and check 2-3 thrift stores before buying new. A fun challenge indeed! And look here, I found a $50 toaster/toaster oven, practically new, for $10.
And then I went to a homeschool curriculum sale. Between the free bin and the ones I actually bought, I came home with 55 books for $11. Just one of the multiple Usborne books I picked up would have cost that! Anyone else have any good finds lately?
