You like it - You haul it.

I was surfing Craig's List on Saturday morning and came across a listing for "free pavers". The listing was posted on Friday, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to call and see if they were still available.

Cha-ching!! I think there is about 128 square feet of pavers! The nice folks getting rid of them were moving and had a deck installed. I am thinking they are going to make a fantastic walkway and patio at the back door!

It only took two trips with the truck and trailer to get them home. Thanks Dad!! He's such a good sport..

Talk about an eye opener.

Nice! Last summer I was so addicted to craigslist, my husband knew he was in for some heavy lifting whenever I told him I had been scouring farm and garden pages : )

Cha-ching is right! I'd be doing a happy dance too. :)

And speaking of Craig's List, this morning I was surfing around and found an old bike that was posted last Wednesday and figured it was gone because it was so super cool and cheap but thought I'd call anyway. I tell you, luck fell in my lap... it was still available! So do you want to know what I did today?

I got myself a fancy old bike.
