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.

monkeybox Reviews

monkeybox is happy to be selected to review a product from CSN Stores.  I looked though their stores and see they have a niceselection of items.  I've always wanted a nice set of  bar stools for my kitchen, but I will need to wait a little longer for those. In the meantime, the nice people at CSN stores are sending me a Calphalon Tri-Ply Stainless Steel 3 Quart Chef's Pan with Lid to review. They have over 200 stores listed at the bottom of the webpage.  Check them out!  And be sure to come back and read my review too.  Thansk CSN!
