Did I Mention We LOVE a Good Deal??

Each year the school district here has a sale of obsolete equipment. They LOVE to see Laurence coming. They know he will buy things that NO ONE else will buy. (Mostly because no one else knows what to do with them). This year we bought 6 flat screen monitors. Oh, did I mention that if you buy a monitor it comes with a CPU, keyboard and mouse? But..... the entire set up is only $5.00. GREAT DEAL!! Did I also mention that we bought 2 laser printers? Neither one works well, but both have new fuser kits in them. Oh, and also we bought 2 UPS's. The flat kind that fit in server racks. (We bought 3 server racks last time) Ummmm and a hutch to go above Laurence's desk. Boy is that all? It sure seemed like a lot more when I was hauling everything home. (Maybe that was because Laurence just happened to have a meeting that he HAD to attend [giggle]).
Great Deals.... however, as you can tell, my living room now looks like a warehouse for retired computer equipment. We got the hutch installed over Laurence's desk (it looks great!!), three of the computers will be going to Lovell this weekend. Hopefully we will get this whittled down soon. In the mean time.... know of any great garage sales we can go to?


  1. wow! that's a lot of stuff! (please what ever you do, don't tell Matt about that sale!!) =]

  2. Wow, that's amazing!!! I wish I knew something about computers!

  3. I still can't believe you got the flat screen monitors for $5 complete with a whole computer!!!!! Cool!!


I LOVE comments!! They make me smile! Thanks!!
