Yesterday Vince was doing some of his intense online bargain shopping. I was in the sewing room quilting. He came over and said “Do you need more Mason jars?” The answer to that question is always yes! I have to laugh when I think about Chad coming to clean up and get rid of all our stuff when we’re gone. There will be no shortage of jars. I hope they’ll all be empty at that point.
Vince found wide mouth pint jars for about $6.50/dozen and wide mouth quart jars for about $7.25/dozen. Lowes had them on sale recently for probably less but we don’t have a Lowes and Wal-Mart will only price match for the stores we have here. So, he ordered 12 dozen wide mouth pints and 12 dozen wide mouth quarts. That’s 288 jars. Sure hope my garden products a lot of carrots and beets! 🙂
Then half an hour later, he comes over and asks “What’s a good price for toilet paper?” I told him I like to pay .26/roll or less. Then he grabs a calculator and asks me if I like Quilted Northern. Yes, that or Charmin. Then he tells me that he’s found it for .24/roll. Great. He left and when I went back to the house, he told me he’d stocked up on toilet paper.
We’re either going to have to come up with a way to store lots of toilet paper or we’re going to have to roll yards . . I guess when neighbors have hundreds of acres, we need a lot of toilet paper to do an effect job of rolling the “yard”.
