Yum Hey What's for Dinner Mom?: The Penny Worthy Project


The Penny Worthy Project

It's been so long since I wrote a Penny Worthy Project Post I almost forgot how to pop the button in at the top! Whoops. I needed a vacation, my mind was so full there was no way I could add writing to the mix there for a while. But now I am back, refreshed, revitalized and ready to write. Or thrift which is what I did today and it felt GOOD to shop for as long as I wanted. No small people whining are we done yet, I have to use the bathroom  oops too late, can we go, I want that, MOOOOOOOOOOOOM. Oh it was so peaceful and nice I didn't want to go home and mow the lawn. But I did. Check out my goodies.

Rocket kit for a nice big rocket.

 My kids love these things. We usually build our own from cardboard and glue and stuff but this is a kit you add rocket engines to again and again. Endless fun for a some soon to be 7 year old. MY BABY!

I found a chicken waterer.

Yes a chicken waterer. I've never seen one in a thrift store before. Of course I bought it, we currently have 54 chickens but soon it will be a manageable  41, 10 to the freezer and 3 back to school. Well we have a bunch of roosters we'll need to cull too. So all in all we'll have about 36 chickens in our laying flock. Having one more waterer will make separating the flock and putting them in tractors next summer so easy (and cheap!).

I got a nice XLT undershirt for my husband LL BEAN new in the package and all! I haven't even given it to him yet, ummm honey I have a shirt for you!

And this very odd Milton Bradley game from 1968, Swahili, never opened or anything. I think I'll sell it, what do you think?

Peace and Love--



  1. I've never heard of the Swahili game. Yes, I think you should list it and see what happens.

  2. I love the Swahili game- the cover design with dramatic shapes and colors is gorgeous. Yep, I do believe I'd try to sell it and see what happens.


Am I talking DIRECTLY to you? Well then let me know!
