The next time you have $40. . . .

. . . try spending it as creatively as I did today. :)

We decided to go to Mary Mac Farms today to pick blueberries (thanks for the suggestion Jessica!). I knew we would need cash, so I got "quick cash" from our ATM- the least amount you can get is $40. How much was our blueberry picking experience? $7 for tons of blueberries. How much money do I have left? $3. This is why I don't carry cash.

Bruegger's Blueberry Bagel and Large Coffee for breakfast = $3
3 lbs Blueberries = $7
The Spirograph, 2  pocket knives, harmonica, craft paper and blueberry cookbook I got at the little yard sale at Mary Mac = $3
Medicine from Walgreen's for summer colds = $10
My "quick stop" into Far East Market to get Jasmine Tea, where I also found chopsticks, Jasmine and Rose soap, shower mitt, coconut soda, instant Miso soup and 2 packs of Hot N Spicy Asian Ramen noodles = $12
Allie losing her first molar today and me being the generous Tooth Fairy that I am = $2

All that random excitement for < $40 = PRICELESS

I mean, come on, a harmonica for 25 cents??? How awesome is that? Even Maggie can play it! Hours of family fun.

The Queen of Random strikes again.

  1. You are so the queen of random! One of the many reasons why I love you! And Grace would love the Asian Market! And I'm sure Lyla will too when we go get her!
