What is a monkeybox?

When I was a little girl, we had a pet monkey named Amanda. My Dad worked in the produce business, so each night he brought home that days culls in a big box - spotty cucumbers, pithy apples, limp celery, moldy oranges and the like. We called it a monkeybox. It was really just trash, but my Mom would take each piece of fruit and trim it, pare it and cut it up to make a beautiful fruit platter for Amanda. Even though it was deemed trash by one, it still had life left in it and was good for the purpose we needed it. That's how I live my life - thrifting, yard saling, looking for another's trash to be my treasure.

I heard a rumor that red tagged clearance items at Kohl's were $1.00 today. DH and I decided to go see what we could find. We did discover that red tags were only $1.00. There wasn't a whole lot to schoose from- but we found a few things. I found some shoes in the ladies department - Mootsie Tootsie, Nine West and Oh! - I know nothing about shoes. But, they were $49.99 a pair and I got them for $1.00 each. I bought 4 pairs, all in a size 11. I plan on listing them on ebay this Spring. I would think they should all sell for at least $20.00 each. So, for $4.00 I should make at least $80.00.

Hint of the Day: Check out sales racks and specially marked tags. You might get a heck of a deal!
