Thrift Store Find and Target find...

My husband and I decided to take a trip to the USA yesterday
and pick up a few things. This was not on my list but I had been
pricing them here in Canada. A magnetic white board and supplies
for it and it was going to cost me about $60 with taxes and today
while at Target my husband pointed it out to me for less than $10
I have a white board for our homeschool/craft room. Talk about a deal.

Today we went to our local Bible for Missions thrift store.
They tend to have really neat treasures in there from time
to time. Well today was one of those times.
We found a VTECH Monster Academy portable computer
for our daughter in there for $4. Yep... $4. She loves it.
There are a lot of very educational games on it and we love
that it has a volume control. All kids games need a
volume button. Best thing is we had an adapter to be able
to plug it in to the wall instead of wasting batteries.

$60 for a whiteboard! That's truly ridiculous! Wow! I'm so glad you got the better deal. And the little computer -- how wonderful! I so enjoyed going to thrift stores while I was in USA.

The penguin lapbook is great! We did one of those too -- back in 1st grade I think. The years are flying by! I tell myself each day to enjoy every day.
