I know that I have cheap moments but there are times when I really take it to the next level-high or low depending on your perspective. Case in point: I hate spending money on books, audio books, dvds or cds. Did you know that purchasing audiobooks usually costs about $30-$40? Hah! I spend $12/year on my library card (along with the ever-rising property owners' taxes) and get my books, audiobooks, dvds-you name it... for FREE! However, I had a day not too long ago when they had a sale at the library and did a 2-4-1 sale. And the books were $1 each!!! So... I pulled out all the stops and grabbed the toonie in my pocket and went shopping. Here's what I got: Went home and priced it out on amazon.ca and realized that I got $99 worth of books for a toonie. Oh and did I mention that I went all crazy and went back to the library and bought more? Don't worry, it didn't happen. I was so excited about getting some really great knitting books for baby stuff for all my friends who keep on getting pregnant (you know who you are...). So... I went to my stash of previously purchased yarn and did some shopping in there while dreaming/fantasizing/delusioning about the cool patterns that I could now do with my new books.
Eat your heart out big book box retailers. I am going back to my library for not only free borrowing but shopping!
