Gotta Love The Resale Shop


Here's a picture of one of our finds today at the resale shop - size 11 Sorel boots with liners for $2.00. Also found two dozen canning jars ($2), a felt lined raincoat ($2) and two pairs of jeans (50 cents each).

We're packing the truck tonight for our trip north tomorrow. We'll be at the polls around 8 a.m. and then it's a three hour drive to our first stop - Sweetie's 75-year-old brother. Guess we'll be there a day or two helping him with some household projects. Then it's on to my Dads until the 13th, assuming his out-patient surgery goes well.

Probably won't post for a few days so I hope everyone keeps prepping and stays safe.

Supposed to have a snowstorm where we're headed so we're packing winter gear. Have a Bug Out Bag, a Med bag and a small insulated lunch bag and our thermos. We don't eat out while travelling. Gas was $2.17/gallon today. We'll be close to an Indian Reservation on our trip and gas there is usually 15-20 cents cheaper per gallon. so we're bringing several gas cans to fill up on the return drive. Not that we use that much but saving every cent we can is the name of the game on our income.

Well, time for supper. Tonight it's a Clean Out the Frig dinner. Later, Treesong
