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.

Big Amazon $5.29 Toy Sale

Amazon is having a huge toy sale with all prices at $5.29 right now. Plus many have free shipping too! Scroll through the different categories and look for any items that have the FREESHIPPING icon bleow them. I have ordered about 12 items this week. My most recent find was a $39.99 Imaginex Pirate Playset for $5.29. I will donate most of these at Christmas to our local Angel Tree. I will keep a few for summertime boredom busters for DS too.

I stumbled on another deal at Amazon this week, but it is now ended. It was only good for a few short hours. I got the Pixter Mulit-Media, an X-Games Video Rom, a Nickelodeon Video-Rom and a Magnetix Building set shippied to my house for a grand total of $26.86. The Pixter was $89.99 on sale for $49.99 with a $40.00 code plus the ROM's were on sale for $10.00 each. The prices have dropped on the ROM's so I just emailed Amazon and asked for a price adjustment. If you order something and find the price lower within 30 days, they will credit you the difference. Amazon ROCKS! I should be getting a refund of $15.28 making my grand total for all those items only $11.55. That is a DEAL! DS is playing with the Pixter right now and loves it. Yesterday was the last day of school (last day of Elementary School - Wah!) so it made a great gift for him.
