20150530 – yardsale haul – IMG_0468 – NCIS game, Leather Care kits
Image by Clio CJS
Boardgame () we got for Eve, but she later refused it, & gave it back without opening, just like the last gift we got her a long time ago. That was a letdown and kinda bummed me out. Anyone want a NCIS game? I don’t.
Anyway, the 2 leather care kits ( total), however, became instrumental in cleaning a box of bdsm equipment we purchased at a yard sale the following year. They also were used on our leather couches a bunch. Great find.
NCIS board game, body oil, essential oil, leather care, leather care kit, leather cleaner.

BACKSTORY: Got up around 7:00 AM, made it out driving by 7:38 AM and went out until [forgot:estimating 12:38PM] for a total of about 4 hours, 25 minutes (because we spent ~35 minutes eating).
Spent .67 plus ~.53 gas for 46.7 miles of driving (15 mpg @ .74/G), for a total cost of .20.
We drove to 29 yard sales, stopping at 19 (66%) of them [but one was a 50-vendor boy scouts sale, so this count is deceptive].
We made 36 purchases (28 items) for a total estimated value of 6.61, leading to a profit/savings of 3.41.
So in essence, we multiplied our .20 investment by 6.9X.
(Also, if you think about it, the profit counts for even more when you consider that we have to earn $~427 on the job, pre-tax, in order to take home the 3 in cash that we saved. How long does $ of disposable income take to earn, vs the 4.41666 hrs we spent here?)
Anyway, this works out to a *post-tax* "wage" of .55/hr as a couple or .27/hr per person.
