Out with the old, in with the new SNOW TOYS!!!

Went to the Salvation Army the other day to try to drop off Kevin's grandma's old mattress. When we got there, we found out they no longer accept mattresses.

Unwilling to waste the trip, we decided to go in and see if they had anything worth looking at.

When we got inside, we saw a massive crowd. We marveled at this, until we saw the sandwich board by the counter: "50% off ENTIRE store!"

We wandered, and I forgot about the sandwich board.

After awhile, Kevin found a pair of skis, with bindings, in almost new condition. Kevin dragged me over, and told me I should buy them. I tried to object, saying there was no way I could afford skis. He said "the tag says $20.00". I said it was a good price, but I shouldn't spend that... Then he reminded me about the sign.

Needless to say, I ended up going home with a pair of skis.
Nice skis.
For $10.00.

I went on Craigslist when I got home to try to find a pair of ski boots in my size. I found a BRAND NEW pair for $20.00.

When I went to pick them up, the guy selling them threw in a pair of skis without bindings, also brand new (still had the price tag on) also. He said he had bought them all for his wife, but she didn't like them, and he had waited too long to return them.

The best part? They're NOT pink!!

After all of this, Kevin decided to send me on a Craigslist mission for him. He wanted a snowboard, with bindings. He already had boots.

I found him a nice, nearly new board for $50.00. We picked that up today.

I can't wait for snow season.
