I had a busy March while I was away from blogging. I hope to catch you up on what I have been doing the next few days. March was the time for the annual Peaches to Beaches yard sale. I had a specific list of items on my wish list. I was surprised that I found most of them. A filing cabinet was at the back of my mind, but W spotted a two drawer for just $5. A definite need was a four cup coffee maker to replace the one we have which is on its last legs (or drips). I actually bought two for a grand total of $4. I have had a food mill on my Amazon wish list for quite some time and was thrilled to find one in very good condition for just $1.
I needed some new shelf liners for the cabinets and typically use wallpaper. I have not had any luck at the local thrift stores. I found two very large rolls along the yard sale route for 25 cents each. This will last me for several changes.
My best find was a large white serving platter. I had mentioned several times that this was at the top of my list. I had looked at a new one with a price tag of $30. At one of our stops I found one exactly like my dream platter marked at $7. My dad, who loves to negotiate, bargained the seller down to $5. I cannot wait to serve a Thanksgiving turkey on it this year.
