Now that we are "penniless" entertainment has to be cheap!!!! On Saturday our local town had a home show on. We have been before and it is nothing special but generally interesting, and entrance is by donation. All donation's go to our local hospital foundation, so that makes it worth while in my opinion.
While we were there we popped by the John Deere stand and there was my dream tractor.
The marvelous thing about this tractor, you do not have to get off the tractor to take off the bucket or put the grass cutter back on. There are controls on the tractor that you drive over the grass cutter, lower something, it grabs the grass cutter and clips/hooks it on. There is only one little issue with this, and that's the price.........it costs the same as my new car..............hhhhmmmmmm.......was it a good decision buying the car, when I could have had this tractor????
I also saw this:
It's a BBQ, can't say it's something I would want, but it's fun to look at I guess. There was some neat wood pellet grills there by Traeger that I had never seen before. I am not a huge fan of BBQ-ing, and dh doesn't cook period, but this seemed like a neat and environmentally friendly system. In Canada the smallest system was around $500 CDN.
We also talked to a couple of local roofing people, as we HAVE to replace the garage roof by the Fall.......so have to start saving for that next. We also found a place where we can buy the supplies so we can maintain our water softener ourselves, saving us at least $100 a year. Home Hardware were also there and were giving out $10 off coupons when you spend $50 so that will also come in handy at some point as well.
So all in all a very informative couple of hours spent there and it will hopefully help us save some money in the long run.
What's your best source of cheap entertainment?
