I know you are wondering how much money I had in the container on top of the washer/dryer. I will keep you in suspense no further.
$16.21, two beads, a small button and a large button.
And I dropped a dime under my computer desk so I effectively have $16.11 to spend. I can't find that dime anywhere, so I guess it will have to be found when I clean up or sweep in the quilt room. Which may be next year!
That will get me:
About a third of a tank of gas
A yard and a bit of fabric at today's prices
A meal at McDonald's with Frank
Chicken fingers at Canes' for the two of us
A gallon of BHP free milk and another for yogurt
Or a 40th Anniversary Card for my honey!
