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.

Free 2 Year Country Home Subscription - HURRY!

If you are a member of Start Sampling, they have a free 20 issue subscription for Country Home magazine.Click here to get started. You can sign up for an account, but not all samples are good for new members. You can request one sample a day - I just got some granola bars and some Kotex yesterday. (Yes, I know, I am ready for anything now with my granola bar and my Kotex.)
There are no commitments or hassles - just FREE stuff. And, who doesn't love that?


  1. MY Granola and Kotex are on their way too!! THANKS for the heads-up !!

  2. I had forgotten about Start Sampling! Amazingly, I remembered my password! Hmmmm....already have a subscription to Country Home...don't need the Kotex...Ok, I got the granola! Thanks for the heads up!


  3. Woohooo! I already had an account there but never use it. Thanks for the heads up.

  4. I have tried a lot of different programs and
    found "Family Funds" to be one of the best,
    They care about your success, It's easy to do
    and I make about $50.00 dollars a day but it's
    been growing monthly so the extra $1500 dollars
    a month has been helpful, give it a try.
