Happy !

Today my mom and I went to Salvation Army while the girls were in school. My mom heads right for the book section. She discovers that hardcover books are 5 for $1.00 !! I browse the titles. This book jumps out at me. I recognize this.

Happy for No Reason by Marci Shimoff
7 Steps for Being Happy from the Inside Out!

I heard about this book and checked it out from the library last year. I really enjoyed reading it. So much that I kept it past its due date and continued to renew it as many times as they would allow me to. I didn't get a chance to finish it, I reached the renewal limit and I owed $4.00 in overdue fines by the time I returned it.
Here it is today for 20 cents at Salvation Army in perfect condition. (retail $24.95)
Great book! Excellent find today!


  1. Great deal! Jen, I have a question for you. I am going to do a post on a great deal I just found on Kijiji, but before I do, let me ask, would you give your daughters gifts for Christmas that you found at a thrift store or garage sale, that are NOT in their packaging but are in perfect condition? There's no right or wrong answer, just want to know if that would "cross the line", from the garage sale pro. Thanks!

  2. Hi Sue! Yes I definitely believe in gifting items to my girls that are gently used! Just the other day I found an Ariel nightgown in perfect condition at Salvation Army. I am going to give it to my daughter for Easter! Love it! I can't wait to hear about your deals!
