Last night Mr. Right and I both got free car washes! It was the drive through deluxe package too. Perfect, since my car was covered in salt from the snow threat earlier in the week and I was going to have to pay to wash it any way.
How can you get one? Well…um…you can’t. Unless of course you live in my area.
A new car wash opened in town and apparently the owner is a very intelligent man. For the grand opening, he has offered free car washes for the entire week. It drew people in, got us familiar with his product, and at least in my case, will probably earn him business in the future.
I’ve never used car washes in the past. Living at home with my parents, we had well water. Water was free, so I obviously preferred to use the hose out back.
Now I’m on City water, and I’m trying to rationalize a $5 car wash – how many gallons do you think it takes to wash a car with a hose at the house? Don’t forget with this $5 wash, I don’t do anything. I just pull up to the ramp and let the conveyer belt pull me along.
Moving right along…
I’m taking about 19 pieces of my old clothing to a consignment store this afternoon. I hope I can make pretty good money off them.
For those of you that have taken (adult) clothing before – how much do you typically make? I know I can’t gauge what to expect per item, she might not take everything and even if she does it might not sell.

And for my normal readers, I’m taking Monday off to baby sit so I won’t be around. Don’t worry, I’ve got another chapter in the Brooke & Mr. Right love story ready to go!
