A Saturday of Bargains

This weekend my husband and I took our girls and spent a little time shopping for some deals. We started with book shopping and I found a hardback copy of Elisabeth Elliot's The Shaping of the Christian Family for $8. I had a copy once upon a time but it is no longer with me so I was thinking I would pick it up. Then I opened it up and found that it was a signed copy! That sealed the day for me!

Then we have been talking about getting a second computer so we could write together but were not willing to spend a ton of money on a new computer. So we took a tip from the Duggar family and went looking for a hard drive at the thrift store. And what a blessing, we found one that works great for only $20! It's amazing what gets passed off as junk sometimes! So now we are able to sit side by side and write! Praise God for that!

How did God bless your weekend?

I went to a thrift store this weekend also! One that I go to all the time. I can get clothes for the kids usually for $.50 or $.75 a piece. I went on Saturday and found the older kids some clothes that they were needing. I wasn't going to go into the "back" area where they have other "stuff" because the baby was starting to fuss. I went anyway just to look "real quick". I went over to the small appliances (where I had found a small food steamer when I really needed it to make some baby food for the last baby) and just so happened where I stopped to take the baby out of the carrier, I saw on the shelf a baby monitor. I'd been telling hubby we needed a new one because one of the ones we currently have is about 10 or more years old that a friend had given me and hasn't been working so well lately. It looked like it had been used a while, but it didn't look like it was a real old model. It was marked $4, and everything in that area is half off, so I figured for $2 I can get it and try it. So I brought it home and hubby was a little weary about it. I plugged it in, and it works GREAT!! I was SOOO thrilled!! It's funny how when you "need" something, it almost lands in your lap. The same thing happened with the food steamer, I had just so happened to find it the day I got it.... I was soo Thankful!!! :o))
