June 6th Spending

Total spent...$19.06.

I've spent my yet on yard sales, a whooping $12.50! The township next to mine was having it's community sale on Saturday, so there were tons of sales! I picked up a veggie platter tray with 4 divisions and a spot for dip for $0.50 well spent at my first stop. My second stop was the jackpot of the day. As you may recall, we bought a tent last weekend, well, I had to talk hubby out of buying more. I found a blow up mat (queen size) and pillow allow with a pump and repair kit for $5! The nice thing is that we can use the blow up mat as an air mattress too if we have company spend the night! I also caved into a selfish whim and bought 2 necklace for $7. Actually, one came with a matching pair of earrings, and the other with 3 bracelets, but I just wanted the necklaces. I think I can modify the bracelets so I would were them, I'll post pics when I'm done.

After hitting up the sales I picked up my friend's dog that I watched for the day. I really, really, really want to get a pet! I wish our landlord allowed them, but I guess I have to be content with watching other peoples. We will be dog sitting for a week this summer for 2 labs which are adorable! When hubby came home we took the dog out for one final walk and we headed off for some ice cream. We both have been craving it, so we went to the store and bought french vanilla, peanut butter M&M's, and a mini pack of twix bars. We had both carmel and chocolate at home for sundaes. We dropped $6.56, but would have spent more if we had bought it out somewhere, and now we have leftovers for more sundaes :-)

Nice! I would *love* to find an air mattress for that cheap--we love using them for company who doesn't mind roughing it a bit.
