  1. Well, I recognize some of the grocery deals…but I'm curious about the other items! How'd you do it?

  2. Marj,I wondered when someone would ask. There are some really odd things on that list, I know. I got the non-grocery items free in various ways: I got the birds and gift wrap when Hallmark had a Q online for $10 off any purchase. Each computer was allowed two Q's. The TV was someone's rejected broken equipment that David repaired. The blind was similar: our new blind broke, they sent a replacement and told us to toss the broken one, but David took it apart and repaired it. Floss was a Wag sale and Q deal. Haircut? I give the male cuts here, which saves us $18 a pop.

  3. Truly well done! Jon does a good job of reminding our kids how repairing our things is like paying ourselves. Important life lessons.
