I promise I had no intention of buying anything when I went in to help set up the church rummage sale this morning. We live on a tight budget; I don't have much to spare.
But I'd only been there an hour when I spotted my first purchase. A telescope for the boys--a nice one with all the parts ($20.00). Shortly afterward I spotted a Coleman six man tent ($10), a sleeping bag ($5), a long handled shovel ($2). And-something we're always short on around here--flatware--service for eight ($3).
But I walked out without the BBQ grill, the bread machine (that one wasn't mine--that one was Gary's idea), a bookshelf, curtains, and new sheets. Oh, and I didn't walk out with the Christmas decorations, a rocking chair, a half a dozen new books and lots of cute nick-nacks.
So I'm not totally without self control. Only sorta.
Still, I can't wait for the weather to clear so the boys and I can test out the telescope.
