Fiscal fast, day 20: planning ahead, great gas mileage
DD brought more firewood in, although we will need some more twigs for fire starting. Will have to grab some come morning light.
Ran a load of towels through the washer, and only gave them 30 minutes in the dryer. they are now hanging on clothes horses in front of the large radiator in the living room, and will be finished drying come morning.
Since I was in the city, I thrifted for some needs for college boy. Looking for a Crockpot, a dresser, a coat rack. Found a CP at Goodwill-$12.99. No thanks. I tried Salvation Army, and found a ton of dressers with a few contenders. I snapped photos of the 3 best options, IMO, and sent them along to DS, along with the prices.
Cheapest was $21, most expensive $70 (comes with a mirror as well). Many were pretty junky/beat up. I also hit Savers, while they did have a CP, it was a much larger, round one and I felt it was just too big for their needs. So, I am gifting them one of my purchased for $5 CP's from a thrift shop.
As far as the dresser goes, he needs to talk that over with the GF. I also saw a nice, small, rectangular kitchen table for $40. Would need to acquire chairs, which they also have. Not sure what kind of a set up they have in their appartment.
Fish for supper tonight:
Now the forecast has the snow possibly starting overnight and not ending until Wed morning. Sigh. I'm weary of snow already.
