I am always in awe of the calorie math scenarios as seen in Glamour magazine:
YOU CAN HAVE THIS (left)
OR ALL THIS (right)
so, I decided to make my own awe-inspiring money math version:
Lunch at panera vs. yard sale finds
These are my weekend yard sale finds:
Fireplace tools (we found that maintaining a fire/cleaning up after is kinda hard without these): $2
Lighted cranberry garland (almost bought one of these after christmas for $7): $2
Hanging closet organizer (in a cute pattern, no less): $1
Cupcake stand (plan to spray paint white - no surprise there): $1
Large lot of Succulents (a bunch not pictured)*: $1
4 Dr. Suess books, You are Special by Max Lucado (great classics): $1
4 brand new letter sticker packages: $1
Taboo (game night, anyone?): $1
Ice cube tray**: $.25
Vintage table runner: $.10
Serving plate: $.10
*The planter these succulents are in wasn't included, I got it for $1 from a yard sale a few weeks ago. I got too anxious to pot them before taking a photo.
** You may be wondering, 'why the ice cube tray?' Well, that morning, I made myself some iced coffee to take along on our yard sale-ing and it got so watered down. Bleh. I bought myself this ice cube tray so that I can save my excess coffee and freeze it so that next time I will not water-down my favorite morning beverage!
I don't know about you, but I think I'll skip lunch!
