- Leftover rolls, pie, and dinner from my family.
- Potatoes for our garden.
- Three outdoor flower pots.
- My mom’s upright freezer with seven drawers. We’ll get when she’ve eaten all the frozen food.
I got three large pieces of lightweight poster board that were going to be thrown away at our political convention yesterday. One side has been written on (sparingly) but the other sides are blank. I'll use our paper cutter to make small pieces from them. I have key tags for our dogs to use when we're camping, to write our campsite numbers so if we lose a dog, someone can bring her or him 'home' to our site. The small pieces of paper will fit inside the key tags, which will be attached to the dogs' harnesses. The three large pieces I got will make hundreds of slips of paper to use, which will last us years.
I got a boxed lunch from Subway, leftover from the convention yesterday. We split it and had an easy supper, which was much appreciated after a very long and tiring day. I also got two cans of pop from the convention.
Do political brochures count? I got a ton of those. They're a help in deciding who to vote for, so I guess they have some value at least to me.
