It was then that I got a little carried away. When we took our items inside to pay, I was starting to feel a little guilty because I was sure that I alone had more than $200 in items based on the ticket price, and Michaela and I had been throwing our stuff together. "How much do we owe you?" I asked.
|These pictures just show the stuff I got. Michaela got another suit case and a few other items of her own.|
"What do you think is fair?" she said.
"Well...uh..." I said.
"How does $15 sound?" she said.
Michaela and I looked at each other in amazement, shelled out the cash, and headed out to the car.
"We're like American Pickers," I said, "bundling and saving."
"Yeah," she said, "we're prairie pickers."
*Yes, I know I said I was going to quit spending money on crap, but I'm chalking this one up to paying for the experience.
