Three Gifts Challenge Update

I've collected a few things to help me with my promise to Rhonda and her Three Gifts Challenge.

I bought the three bags in the back from Whole Foods. They were $.99 and made out of recycled plastic. I thought they were a pretty good deal since I do not sew (very good anyway-actually not good at all!). Also they are bright and pretty.

I already had the hot beverage mug, again bright and pretty (just like me!).

The pink Stanley Thermos has been in my sights for over a year. I just couldn't bring myself to pay $20.oo bucks for it when I had a perfectly fine drab green one at home :( . But then! Target put it on sale for $9.47!!! I got the last one :) .

The silver topped aqua blue water bottle I got for a mere $.50 on clearance at Wal-Mart (I bought a bunch!).

Then I bought that really nifty Diamond print bag to carry all the stuff I haul around with me every day (journal, magazines, crochet, Bible, books). That way I'm always prepared when I have to wait at the bus stop, or music lessons, or for the ferry etc.(that's how we get across the Mississippi). Nope, can't waste a minute.

The hardest aspect of of the challenge is the bags. I forget them! Yesterday when I stopped at Home Depot on the way to Ladies Prison Ministry, I carried all of my items in my arms to the car. Maybe if I do that enough I'll remember my bags!

I saw those bags at whole foods and a lady walking out with a bundle of them. I didn't realize they were so cheap. I'm even cheaper I didn't even ask!
