WHY I shop at thrift stores; saved $171.00 today. YAY

The Gazelle Freestyle 2 glider ($199.99) works your arms and legs and torso in a striding motion that combines the feel of a cross country ski machine with your kid’s swing set. You can use it at either the slow walking pace or a full out running stride. I bought it for $26 today at a thrift store. I needed something with low impact and find stationery bikes boring and the seat begins to bite into my butt. This glider lets me work my arms and legs. I can go slowly or speed it up. I can "
ride" it while listening to the radio or tv. Love it and I saved $171.00. Why would anyone shop for full price? Puzzles me.

Barrett...a success

More fun with tie dye

A fun hobby, but it can be expensive. Dye cost about $3 a pack and shirts are $2.50 to $3.00 new. IF you buy all 8 colors, you will spend over $24, and the cost of shirts, rubber bands, squirt bottles, gloves, paper towels...well, you get it. But, you get a pretty piece of clothing to wear.

More Tie Dye Tee Shirts---A fun, but expensive project.

Tie dying is a fun project, however, it is expensive, takes more time than you would think and is very messy. You need a large space from which to work and each shirt will need a day to dry before the job is done. I found that I had to experiment with various techniques in order to get the results I wanted. You can find tons of instructional videos on Youtube to follow. Best thing about the project is that you have beautiful and fun shirts to wear.
