Filing Cabinet makeover
Shopping for junk is my passion, but another passion of mine is finding storage (the two are sorta related....) Anyhow at the other day at VV, I walk in the door and see this off-white two drawer filing cabinet, without a price tag. I ask one of the cashiers, who happened to be walking by and she tells me $4. I go up to the cash register to pay and tell the other cashier it was $4. Then the two cashiers who were at the registers grumble and grumble to each other and make comments like "that should have been $8...so and so doesn't know how to price things". Sheesh. I did get it for $4. I had to bite my lip, I wanted to "Well if you were so concerned about underpricing items, why do you sell shoes for .50 a pair when I can turn around and get $100 for them on ebay?" Remember those red ugly Dansko clogs I bought a few months ago...they sold for over $100.
The tan filing cabinet is replacing a junky particle board tiny filing cabinet that I think we bought new, circa 1989. (I didn't really get into yardsaling until about 1990 so I would never buy a junky particle board filing cabinet now knowing what I know about buying used). I donated it yesterday to Smile. It was so small, it was frustrating to use as a filing cabinet since the drawer barely opened up far enough.
Thanks to all who voted for Dawn (my previous blog posting). She won!
