Frugality Quiz - part 1

Hello everyone,

It's been a few weeks, hasn't it?  Hope you are all well.

During the last few weeks I've been in charge of a meeting, made a presentation to a city committee, and done all the background work on those things.  It's amazing how long checking quotations takes.

Earlier today I was listening to CBC Radio 1 - a piece about how to make your wedding cost less money.  Fancy weddings and spending money on them are completely out of my realm, but I just found myself thinking about frugality and flannelette sheets.  So, here's part 1 of the frugality quiz.

1.  Do you head for the second hand linens table first when you go to a church rummage sale?
a.  Ick!  Rummage sale?!!  Why would I want someone else' old stuff?
b.  No ...  because I'm usually headed for books or clothes
c.  Absolutely!  They're good for dishclothes and dusting, paint rags and pretty near every sort of cleaning.

2  When your son brings you a flannelette sheet that's torn in the washing machine, you:
a)  Tell him to handle his laundry more carefully.
b)  Tell him to toss it out.
c)  Bake a pie for a special dessert.

3.  Where do you keep your flannelette dusting squares?
a.  Stuffed in a lower kitchen cupboard.
b.  Tossed in a plastic grocery box that's stuffed in a lower kitchen cupboard
c.  Folded and stacked in a pretty tissue box (they're just the right size!), handy on the kitchen counter or bathroom window ledge.

4.  Would you ever consider giving your old flannelette sheets to a second hand store?
a)  Of course.
b)  Are you crazy?
c)  What's that "cold, dead hands" quotation?  Oh ... that's about guns

Best regards,

Why's Woman  :-)
