We are sometimes blessed with the opportunity to travel with Husbandman on some of his work trips. We’ve had a chance to visit Indianapolis twice now, and have discovered that there is a lot to do for cheap, or, even better, for free![Read more…] about Thrifty in Indy
Four times a year, our library has a used books sale. It’s phenomenal because you can get some REALLY old books for cheap. I brought home these two books today:
