On sale -- 100% off!

Some of the folks on base are headed home soon. Their departure represents a great opportunity for bargain hunters. I just picked up a refrigerator very inexpensively today. And in some housing units, people are just putting things outside free for the taking... I could have picked up an iron and ironing board if I had wanted it. Numerous desks are available -- I picked up a nice bookshelf. Seems that the rules at the "self help" place where you can make your own furniture is that you can't sell it, since it's make with government-purchased property. And some people have made some nice desks! I guess my procrastinating actually going over to self-help to make my own desk paid off. Good things come to those who wait.
