Yes, it's been a bit of a stressful week. Time for one of my favorite destressers...garage sales! I was short on time (and money, after the vet took most of it) but managed to hit 5 sales and found useful items at 4 of them.
A meat grinder. This one is good quality and has all
the blades and sausage tubes included. It will come in
handy during the apocalypse for make zombie sausage.
A large clay plant pot. I have a house
plant in desperate need of a larger home.
Four jam jars for canning. I have
a freezer full of raspberries to process.
$1 for all
A cotton throw rug that looks brand new.
A large hamper style basket with lid.
And my favorite find of the day,
a hippie style top. So cute! And it fits.
All that for a grand total of $8.75. If purchased at regular retail prices it would be well over $100 (plus tax).
ETA: I knew I was forgetting something. I also got this ceramic dog dish to hold water. Singha drinks from this shared bowl and he can't have plastic due to an allergy. The bowl was free. I love free. Especially when these same bowls are selling for $8 at Petco.
