A Collection is Born
Was at Smile today and snagged this Saltines tin (the one on the right) for .50 to add to the two others I have. So now it's official, its a collection since there are at least 3 of them. The one I got from today is only from 1987 (which I remember as being a very good year).
Also picked up another Rachael Ray cookbook for .50 - I will have to put a bunch of them up together as a lot on ebay. And last week I forgot to mention this bargain a big half-full bucket of laundry soap for $2.
While at the grocery story this morning I found yet another instant lottery game ticket just sitting there in the vending machine slot, waiting for me to take it. I don't understand how this happens - people apparently put $2 in the machine and then somehow FORGET to take the lottery ticket they paid for??? I don't get it, but now my eyes are trained to look at the lottery machine vending machine when I walk past it. This ticket, however, turned out to be a loser. At least I didn't waste $2 on it.
