Missionary Biography 39₵

2 shirts from the 50₵ Bin

The shirts are going to the Union Gospel Mission

I usually rely on the public library for my reading material but, Missionary stories are one of my favorite genres of book and for 50₵, I decided to SPLURG.

duck & greenThe pump on my sage green dispenser broke a few months ago so I’ve been watching for a cheap replacement. The duck had the same sized cap and at 50₵ it was indeed a frugal fix.

It’s difficult to see in the bottom right is two packages of peel & stick Name badges with birds on them. There were actually four packs of badges but only two had birds so I re-donated the other two. 50 badges 60₵.

bird badgesI give home canned goods, mostly jams & jellies as gifts. I got the badges so I can make canning labels from them, which look much nicer than just writing on the lid.

I hope you enjoy “shopping with me”

I work hard to not just bring stuff into the house and then never put it to use. Blogging hopefully inspires others but its the motivates I need to actually follow through with my plans. For instance because I had to show you how the name tags became labels, I actually got around to labeling my canned goods.

Do you find yourself buying it more and using it less or do you only buy what you need?
