Tarps R Us

I bought a 4 ft by 6 ft tarp at the Dollar Store yesterday.
It's a very pretty shimmery green color, sort of like the lightest shade of green in the camouflage tarp pictured below.

Too bad they didn't have any camouflage tarps, or I would have bought one of them.
Oh yeah, I used the tarp to cover up the air conditioner for winter. I already had the bungee cords.

Laser Stickers

What is Rebelde? Because I found this sheet of "Laser Stickers" which contain the term Rebelde all over them.

I think it is a Spanish TV show or something.

It looks like a skanky version of Saved By the Bell.

Variation on a Theme

When we were driving around last Sunday, we passed a 99 Dollar eyeglass store:

With this blog in mind, I told Sandra, "Get the camera! Get the camera!" as I did a huge U-turn.

59 Cent Sale at the Little Dollar Store

I think the Little Dollar Store on the Main Drag in ET is trying to get rid of stuff, either that or they are slowly going out of business, but I don't think they are because they keep putting new stock on the shelves.
Anyway, about six weeks ago they had a RED TAG ITEM SALE FOR 89 CENTS, not everything was on sale for 89 cents, but quite a bit of stuff was, then about three weeks ago they had a RED TAG ITEM SALE FOR 79 CENTS, it was basically the same merchandise as the 89 cent stuff, but with a few more items thrown in, then this week as I was driving by I noticed that they had a RED TAG ITEM SALE FOR 59 CENTS, same sale with a few more items added in, I couldn't wait any longer, I had to act!!!

I bought two sets of screwdrivers, one slotted, and the other phillips, a colander for draining spaghetti, and a three outlet grounded plug adapter!!!
I am practically breathless.

New Location

As Sandra and I were exploring our new neighborhood this weekend, we were pleased to learn there are TWO 99 Cent stores in the immediate vicinity of our apartment. And I don't mean the 99 Cent Store Knock-offs (though there are plenty of those too):

Rafael's 99 Cent Shampoo.

I mean the 99 Cent Only stores! The real deal!

One of our two local 99 Cent Only Stores.

A nearby 99 Cent store is a blessing when you're furnishing a new apartment. We picked up quite a few items: a loofa back scrubber, a water pitcher, and oven mitts among other things.

Our most disappointing purchase was this ice cube tray which forms ice into the shape of various fruits -

Fruit-shaped ice cube tray pictured with "USA Clean" scrubbing pads.

We loved the idea of pineapple shaped ice cubes, but the idea was better than the reality because once the water is frozen, it's nearly impossible to get the fruit shaped ice cubes out of the tray. We ended up having to run hot water over the back of the tray which made more of a mess than we were willing to deal with. Maybe we will sell this on eBay.

I also picked up this cassette of Nelson Eddy Favorites:

Nelson Eddy Favorites.

Judging from the cover art, I thought this would be hysterical, but it is actually pretty solemn. I was a little disappointed, but I will play it from time to time when I'm feeling morose.
