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 get a ton of great deals at Amazon.com. Whenever I find a particularly great deal, I will post if here with a Search Box and the wrods to enter to find it quickly. I would appreciate you using the search box on the "Deal of the Day" site. In the summer they have a toy sale featuring $30.00 toys for $5.29 with free shipping. I bought 15 toys last summer and was able to donate them to Toys 4 Tots, the Giving Tree at my School, the Salvation Army and a few other local charitites. I alos bought a KitcheAid mixer there for a total of $79.00 after discounts coupons and codes. I have never seen one like it sell for less than $169.00.

Hint of the Day: Come back here for more great deals at Amazon aond other places too!
