Household goods on a budget
A local woman has been clearing out a home (hers? a relatives?) for selling. She's had all sorts of contents up for sale on a local Facebook site. She had listed some towels as sets, so I inquired if she'd just sell the bath towels, as that's what we need. She told me that she'll have a look around and see what she has. She unearthed 4 brand new with tags, 100% cotton, good sized green and blue towels (2 each)and asked me to make an offer. I suggested $15, she accepted. I picked them up today, she even threw in 2 91 each color) matching wash cloths. Nice.
I normally only buy cream/off white, especially as I am now a renter and plan on remaining one for the next few years. These towels are destined for the kid's bath. Several of our towels need to go, they are thin, thread bare, unraveling (and previously mended). Getting nice replacements at a bargain price works for me.
