Goodwill Finds

April 21st, 2015 at 02:21 pm

Well, I had a $5 coupon for Goodwill, and I was determined not to spend any more than that, and also to only buy something I needed. I did spend $5 on the nose. I bought body wash, some awesome wrapping paper, and a Monopoly Jr. game. The third item might not be considered a need, but let me explain. I am seeking out this particular game in order to collect the letters. I use the letters to help create double acrostic puzzles, which I hope will be an income stream in the future! I need as many letters as I can get.

So, I counted the $5 as a snowflake.

I also found a dime in the parking lot!

I resisted buying dinner on the way home. I knew I had veggie cheese soup already made, and that helped.

Today it was back to train-riding, and it was a cold and windy walk to the station. BRRRR. I'm ready for REAL spring, not just teaser days!

Our HR rep told me yesterday that I will have three months to use up my flexible spending after I leave, so I am less panicked now about getting that done. I can do that when I have more free time -- and who knows, I might really need it between now and then!

    Oooh I love double acrostic puzzles and often wondered how they were constructed. My faves are the Michael Ashley and the Cox & Rathvon acrostics. Good on you! Scrabble crossword game, if you can find it or its variants in thrift stores, has 98 letter-tiles which could be good for acrostics.

    Two of my favorite SA bloggers are double acrostic fans, and I've never done one? Add that to my "to-do" list for today! Wait! I see one in Sunday's NYT magazine! There goes my plans........

    Duh, I meant Scrabble Jr.! I buy the Scrabble Jr. because the classic Scrabble tiles are much sought after by crafters and those games are pricey. The Scrabble Jr. letters are just on cardboard.

    That's good you have a little breathing room/flexibility to use up your flex money.
