Cheap, Cheap, Cheap

I think I've said it before: I'm nothing if not cheap.

So it should come as no surprise when I tell you that these are available at the grocery store for the same price and come wrapped in free toilet paper!

I found something that looks and works a whole lot like these at the Dollar Tree, 8 or 20 for a buck (depending on size).

So, when I saw these I knew that they looked damned familiar!

And after some noodling around at various Den O' Crap stores (Dollar General, Family Dollar, Dollar Tree), I happened upon
(eyes left) the jelly coil key rings that I remembered at the Dollar Place at the Fairgrounds Farmers Market!

For a dollar!

And I figure I can get 6-8 out of each key chain. That's 6-8 for a dollar.

I bought 4.

They had this great hot pink (I bought 2) and an intense purple (2 of those as well) and when I cut them apart, I still have these cool clips that I'm sure I can find a use for.

And lookie here.

Can you tell the difference?

My wallet can!

Please note that there was no knitting content in this post.

I did not refer to the lovely Bumblebee Baby Cotton that will probably be my next cast on. (Babies and Bears? Lillie's Little Sweater? The Knitting Pure and Simple?) Haven't decided yet.

Stay tuned.
And they come wrapped in free toilet paper? Oh my, how can they afford to stay in business! Snort.
Thanks for the tips on the clips and the coils. I bought some of the clips a while back but haven't used them yet. I'm going to look for the coils the next time I'm in the Dollar Tree (love that store!).

Great ideas and great bargains! So I saw those cute plastic project totes we use at Tarjay today in the dollar bins! Not like we need more....
It takes a creative mind to see those multiple uses of everyday objects. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us!
