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.

Paid Posts and G i v e a w ay s

Hi.  I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that in the next few weeks, I am going to do some posts about products and having some freebies for you too.  I try to do these sparingly as I want my blog to be about me and my junk and journies.  But, I have had a lot of offers to do posts that I just can't quite pass up this time.  Offers that will allow our family to have a better Christmas this year.  I would NEVER do a paid post for anything that I didn't think was a good product or worth your time. I have four lined up right now.

So, if you see a post like that, read it and you might win something good.  Or wait until the next post when I show my lates junk or journey. 

Thanks guys!


  1. I look forward to them and I am happy you are getting a chance to do some posts that will benefit your family!
    hugs, Linda

  2. I love a freebie - bring it on!

  3. Free is always good.
    I like to read too.
