Eleven Cents at Frys

I stopped by Fry's grocery store today after I went to the post office to mail a book I sold on Amazon and to ship an Etsy item I sold. Then I hit a yard sale. I don't go to yard sales in the heat of summer. I have no idea if people even have yard sales here in the summer, but I seriously doubt it. The weather in Arizona in the Fall, Winter, and Spring is much more conducive to yard sales (or being outside at all). I found this cute crocheted potholder at the yard sale. Check out my Squidoo article Vintage Potholders to see more of these beauties. I just love them!

Then I went to Fry's. I was just going to get some milk to make potato soup tonight but of course ended up getting a cart and stocking up on stuff they had on sale. Since it's cooled off, soup sounds really good. I made vegetable beef soup over the weekend, but it's all gone. So, when I went to check out, I spotted the dime in a check out lane. Then as I was leaving the store, I saw this penny! I snatched them right up.
