We spent $10 on the scanner, after verifying that it would work with Windows 7. Carolyn & the girl selling it both raced each other to see who could find verification of this fact on their cell phone first. (Carolyn lost.)
$3.00 for another blacklight, which promptly went up on our wall, controlled by remote X10 controller.
Clint paid $2.00 for the cd player for his car. This hilarious guy was trying to buy his other one for $1 instead of $2. He didn't speak English, and kept just saying "One". The guy selling it was like, "No, two!". The first guy repeated "One" at least 10 times in response. Finally he gave up and parted with it for $1. In the middle of this, he threw up his hands to ignore the "One" guy, and sold Clint his for $2, then went back to dealing with the "One" guy, who started back up again. It was pretty hilarious, especially how he finally did get it for $1. That was the hardest haggle I've seen in 30+ years of yardsaleing.
$2.00 for the Heineken mirror as a gift.
$1.00 total for the extension cords. Apparently, we still need more.
$0.25 was more than Carolyn wanted to spend on the ice tray, but it seemed like it'd be an easy one to use. We're getting to the point where we may have to throw some ice trays out. But we are breeding them into a new race of easy-to-use ice trays. Some are WAY easier than others. Let the war begin!

Look at those jars! Why is that one so tall?!?!? Couldn't resist. I put my various glues in it, to keep them from drying out.
Also got some free cushions ... Bursitis sucks.
