Wow...lots of love for Emma's library tote yesterday. Thanks! I kept thinking I'd get around to responding to each comment individually last night, but I grabbed a book, ran a bath, and finished my book a couple of hours later. (That water was COLD by the time I finished!)
And while I'd love to whip up a bunch to sell, it's just not going to happen. I'm sure I could make it work for the next week, but then we'll be back in the school thing. And, as much as I hate to say it, it's often cheaper to buy a tote at Target.
By the time I get the fabric and spend several hours on it, I'd have to sell them for more than I'd want to pay for one.
All the same, I do miss my Simple Wife Handmade shop from days past. And I hope to open it again. But it's not for this season of life.
The bracelet book some of you mentioned in your comments? It doesn't ring any bells for me. But if you figure out what it is, let me know. I'd like to read it too!
I'd better hit the shower and get going. I didn't get up until after seven this morning (I know! I'm shocked too!) and I have a new friend coming for lunch at 11 o'clock. So I'd best get moving and make some chicken salad.
I tend to make chicken salad a lot when someone is coming for lunch. It's yummy and always makes me think of Anne and Diana wanting to stay at a hotel and eat chicken salad for lunch every day. Just seems like a girly kind of thing to make!
I'll get out some yummy crackers, slice up some fruit, grab some grapes, and whatever else I can find that sounds good.
Toben just told me I'd better step on it, so I'm off.
Happy Friday, everyone!
P.S. I visited Fresh & Easy for the first time yesterday. They have a section of clearance produce and I got something like two pounds of peaches for 49 cents. Crazy! So that's my Frugal Friday tip for today--always check the sale section of wherever you're shopping.
I'll definitely go back. Not for a full grocery trip since they didn't have some of the things I needed, but if I'm passing by and have the time, I'd definitely stop in for produce. I love having fruit around for snacks and their produce prices were great.
I do know people who shop sale ads for groceries and visit all kinds of stores in a week. I typically don't do that because I don't want to make the time. What about you? Do you shop at a bunch of different stores each week? How do you make it work? Is it worth the time of driving all over the place?
