I boxed these items no longer wanted by Boyfriend up to send to Son One and Son Two.
Son One has Crohns disease and can now wear the size 29 waist black jeans because he has lost so much weight. The hodie is new and he can wear it next winter.
Son Two lives in NYC and can use the casual dress shirt for everyday and the collared shirt for golf.
I had these for sale on craigslist.org for awhile and then thought, oh what the heck, I’ll send them to the boys!
I’ve been somewhat hesitant to let these speciality wall plates go. I tried selling them on craigslist.org to no avail.
Two of them are plaster pieces. We removed them from our 1949 house when we redid a few rooms. On the back of the 3 outlet wall mount is a price in pencil of $24.00. The small version is marked $12.00. So I thought I may have some sort of special antique on my hands. But I guess not.
The other white light plate is porcelain.
SOOOOO – In the give away bag they go!
They’d look really nice in a teenager’s room or maybe a baby’s room. Having neither, it’s better to give them away to someone who can perhaps use them!
My mom and dad bless me with a subscription to Prevention Magazine which I love.
I pass them along to the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament up at Belmead in Powhatan. The sisters live on very little income and things like magazines are appreciated. Every few months I gather my Prevention Magazines and send them to the sisters.
You can read about these remarkable nuns and their work to preserve the heritage and environmental beauty of Belmead in Powhatan VA. Consider making a donation to help them in their effort to preserve this 2,000 acre tract of land and the buildings on it. It is indeed a fascinating and warm story for a Mothers Day.
I bought this coffee for a dollar. It is a pricey brand and it’s supposed to be really good.
It was not.
I tried to drink it. No amount of sugar or cream could make it palatable.
BUT, I have found it hard to toss or even to give away, since it is, well….yucky.
I pulled the coffee out of the cabinet yesterday and looked at it hoping for divine inspiration in how to rid myself of it without denting my conscience in the food waste dept.
AH HA! Garden mulch. I mulch my coffee grounds, eggshells, organic waste (peelings, cores, etc) and paper shreds so why not use the coffee for mulch!
So I can move it out of my environment by re-using it in my garden.
I loved this cami when I purchased it at the thrift mart for a buck.
At my favorite frugalista shopping spot, children’s clothing is a dollar.
I should explain.
The Frugal Musician is a tiny thing. I’m five feet tall and weigh 100 pounds soaking wet and find that most grown up clothes do not fit. Therefore, I purchase size 14-16 girls clothing. It is sometimes a task to locate an item that does not have I LOVE MOMMY or Seasame Street logos (hmmm- but I did just purchase a Seasame St tee shirt- it says “I’M LOST can you tell me how to get to Seasame Street?- perfect!)
This is a size 16 girls cami top with lovely lace and sequins. I thought it would make a nice summer night shirt with a pair of tights.
But the shirt ITCHES. I cannot describe it better. The combination of lace and sequins, while beautiful, ITCHES.
So in the bag it goes. I really hate to see it leave, because it is darn pretty. But did I mention it ITCHES??
