I got 5 hooded baby towels for $5 Have not seen any since I started looking in February and baby is coming next month. I was in a rush to look for long but will go back in few weeks as they had very nice baby items compared to the local Goodwill that is run down.

Forget this false savings!

Husband and Little Man found a Thomas DVD for $2 at Goodwill today - no scratches, so it plays perfectly!

I scored a 20 pound box of tomatoes for $3.50 yesterday at the produce market. A bit bruised and blemished, but not bad. I cut out the bad spots, throw them in the food processor, and freeze in quarts. Use in spaghetti sauce and like that.

Also found a cute little painted shelf thingy with coat hooks for $2.30 (1/2 price color tag, plus senior discount!). I have no closet in my bedroom, so coat hooks will be welcome.

That's a great deal! A farm by me sells a bushel (about 50 lbs) for $10 or 10 bushels for $70. I've processed 50 lbs peaches and 150 lbs tomatoes so far. Gearing up for buying 10 bushels...if I can find the energy!
