Patience Is Rewarded (That's the wisdom part)
When I saw this metal desk in September at Salvation Army it was marked $40. I said "No way!" We had bought two metal desks from a school surplus sale for under $10 each in August. I'd keep looking and be patient.
During Christmas break TopDad and I were in the SA again and the desk was still there, only this time it was marked $1.29. That's right! $1.29!! I grabbed the tag and headed for the cashier.
That doesn't always happen, but when it does, what a good feeling. And Dandylion likes his "new" desk.
