$1 Challenge

So this week, I made some purchases in my "buy 52 - $1 items" from my 2011 list of 52 things to do this year (specifically #21).  I bought the following:

Five suitcases - $5

Blockhead game - $1

Three pyrex dishes - $1

I've been a little slow at this, but I'm working on it.

I also finished up item #16 by reading a third book - A River in the Sky by Elizabeth Peters.

If  you like light mysteries, I find Elizabeth Peters' Amelia Peabody mysteries to be quite entertaining.  There are many of them, I don't know how many.  In my future life of leisure, I wouldn't mind going back and re-reading them in order.

Aw man, buying 52 $1 items in a year can be considered a challenge? I've done that in a week with a little help from ebay - there's plenty of quite cute jewellery listed at 99c with free postage.

Those suitcases were a damn good buy though...
