...on bargain hunting
One of the last times I was in Phoenix I saw and article in the paper on scoping out good finds at thrift stores. Ever since then I have had this urge to go down to goodwill and see what treasures I could find. This morning, after taking chloe to the vet, I drove myself down to goodwill. I had all these ideas in my mind that I would come out with hundreds of treasures from clothes to purses to books. After all, I consider bargain shopping to be one of my best talents! Well, turns out I couldn't bring myself to really dig around in the clothes and things. Marshalls is one thing but apparently I don't have what it takes to shop goodwill. I did come out with a book, Les Miserables. I have been wanting to read this for a while so I was glad to find a copy for cheap. Funny thing is, it was a library book from APS! The guy said that they get a lot of "donations" from APS and the public library. Very generous of them, huh?
