I’ll be honest. The tipping point for beginning this blog was that I’ve been lurking at another blog. While I’ll be posting about a number of things within the theme of ‘doing it myself’, the challenge posted at My Dear Trash, to find/thrift 20 one dollar items and list them on eBay, was just what I needed to get my act together.

And I’m really happy with the things I’ve found! I think I’m even more enthralled with the idea of being able to find great bargains. And then even if the item doesn’t work for myself or someone in my family, I can pass the item on to someone else at a great deal for them. What more could a girl want?
