A great and amazing Saturday for Amy Munro! I can hardly believe it!
A pair of bright yellow barrel chairs – $100 for both – perfect for my piano room! I felt almost guilty, but the young couple seemed truly thrilled to get rid of them. And I only had to travel a few streets from my house.
Just in time, too! I had to find something. Now, my new piano student won’t think I’m weird.
And the day just got better!
A COMMUNITY YARD SALE? Who knew?
Seriously, timing is everything!
a small nightstand that I will paint and put between my new chairs
a lamp – small but better than nothing
some glazed ceramic pots for my back patio
An unused straw wreath. Good to know I’m not the only one who goes nuts at the craft store!
And a box of certificate frames… ten for five dollars. Carmen did say “no junk”, but I have an idea for them. If it looks terrible, I’ll throw them away immediately. No big loss.
Bonus: a sweet little bag of used paperbacks! Romance, mystery, suspense -- definitely not junk!
Cherry on top: thanks to my cooking lesson with the Patels. I don’t have to worry about dinner. I have a hearty lentil soup ready and waiting. Who knew that something so delicious could cost so little to make? And I still have a huge bag of lentils…
Way to stretch that budget!
You’ve got this, Amy Munro!
