day # forty-one

Going from less than half an acre to just over four acres is going to require some better equipment than one rake and a push mower.
I just love craigslist! My husband was able to get us (what we hope will be a decent riding mower) and a yard sweeper for CHEAP! (Sweeper not shown here.) Niel got both, including a new battery and a pin for $500.
And CHEAP is the name of the game right now...or should I use the words: inexpensive, great deal, bargain and thrifty. Trying really hard to not "get what I paid for" takes time and energy, a lot of research and a willingness to pick through the proverbial junk pile of other people's after-holiday-decluttering efforts. Sales online are good too, like the one on Sears.com I just took advantage of for my kitchen appliances.

We went with all white! No trendy stainless steel here. Besides, I am going to have a whole lot better luck keeping white clean than I am stainless. Too many fingerprints. (The windows will be keeping me plenty busy in that category of household chores.)

Now, if I can just keep from tipping the scale toward being penny wise and pound foolish, we'll be good.

  1. You are awesome at finding good deals! I'm sure you will do great! And I always thought I wanted stainless appliances, but now that I have them, I hate them. They are so hard to keep clean. White is a great way to go instead!
