cheap. skate.

that is me. so the Rep and i closed on the sale of our house today and since the children were being cared for and we had a few hours after, we went to plan out some of our renovations, pick out a stove and check out some chandeliers (insert massive clip art of a beating, love filled heart). i also wanted to grab the supplies to convert my old window to an organization center of the most awesome order. we picked out a stove, 30% off. we picked out the hardware for the kitchen cabinets and priced some other items that we are going to need. then we went about gathering the supplies for the window conversion. um, here is the deal. each item i needed was $5. by the time my bill was going to be close to $25, i put it all back. though i clearly won't get it done this weekend, i am simply not going to just buy all of the stuff for more money than i could have paid to just buy a cool, old shabby chic chalkboard. so, plan b. i still plan on doing the project, but i am going to find what i need a lot cheaper as i can, or even free. so, you will have to wait for the results. but what can i say? i am thrifty. or cheap. whichever.
to prove this, i spent the last 45 minutes planning out my yard sale route for the morning. i will have an infant child strapped to my chest as i peruse the junk of others that i plan to turn into some treasures. i. can't. wait. and i don't have to for long, because i have to leave the house at 6:30 a.m. :)
i will report the results of my yard sale-ing tomorrow.
