I paid a total of EIGHT DOLLARS for everything in this photo. Eight dollars. For all of it.
|The contents of my $8 box|
I got baskets for organizing toys, bags and backpacks, clothes, books, two tents, cycling shoes, a bike helmet, flippers, hats, dishes, clothes hangers, napkins, rubber boots, flashlights, and a stove pipe. For eight dollars. Don't ask about the stove pipe. I just thought a metal cylinder might be useful to have in my materials yard! One of the bags turned out to be a pretty fancy Lowepro camera bag.
|Assorted books for our home collection|
|I got tea sets, camping cups, a roasting pan, and more.|
|I am always needing more flashlights so I stocked up.|
|Assorted cloth napkins|
|Tents, cycling shoes, roller blades, bike helmet, flippers, boogie board, etc.|
One of the best parts about the weekend is that my mom joined me for the Sunday sale, including the box sale. We filled our boxes to the brim and then we were barely able to drag them outside to the car. My mom's craziest box addition was a bag of seventeen (!!) duck decoys. I have no idea what she will do with seventeen plastic ducks but I'm sure my mom will come up with something creative.
I had also gone to the sale on Friday and picked up some other great things, many of them homestead-related.
|Animal harness (goats?), grooming mitt, chicken/rabbit feeders, and a scrub brush|
|A beautiful white crock for making sauerkraut and a little pitcher for holding milk (goats, again)|
|I plan to use these crocks for holding homemade butter (small ones) and cream (big ones)|
|A meat grinder!! For $4.50 I got an excellent cast iron meat grinder. Homemade sausage, folks!|
