I walked around to the garage sales in my neighborhood and got 2 great deals!
1) An exercise ball office chair for $20
We used to use a ball for our computer chair till I popped it -oops! But this is even better because it has a little back to lean against and a slightly more stable bottom.
2) A cupboard/bookcase/hutch type thing for $15
This needs refinishing/painting, but it's solidly built (not particle board) and I think it will look amazing with a fresh finish on it. And we are in serious need of bookcase space. Plus I can store either china in the bottom or unattractive notebooks/papers.
Anyone else hit any sales today? There were some great ones posted in Craigslist, but I didn't have time to drive around (I'm supposed to be editing a research paper).
