I set out today to go to several yard sales. One of the nearby neighborhoods was having their yearly neighborhood sale, so it was a great day to venture out. I picked up several things I’ve been looking for, and a couple of things I wasn’t looking for. It was overall, a good day.
The best buy of the day was a portable dishwasher that I picked up for $25 at an estate sale. It is harvest yellow and old, but the family said it works. I am running it for the first time as I write this. I am hopeful that it will get my dishes clean and tie us over until we can afford to redo the kitchen. I don’t really mind hand washing, it just takes up a lot of my counter space. I bought what I thought was a great refrigerator right after we bought this house, and I paid a lot more than $25 for it. The refrigerator works, but there’s a problem with the through-the-door ice server, so we can’t use it. This may be should have been expected since the refrigerator was used, but I wish the seller would have told me about it. So I am hoping that the dishwasher turns out to be a better buy.
