After weeding out the book collection (a.k.a. our mini-library) and reading a post from a fellow blogger yesterday, my mission tonight is to locate any old magazines - along with the books I've culled from the shelves and head on down to Half Price Books. No, I'm not a spokesman for them, but I absolutely love their store, their mission, their philosophy - it's all good. Really, really good!

They buy & sell new/used books. You get cash for your books, not a store credit like many smaller chains do. If you need a good book (or 3), check out their amazing clearance section - I have founds tons of goodies (and more than a few gifts) over the years in there. What books, CD's, DVD, VHS that they can't/don't sell - they donate to libraries, hospitals, etc. The whole idea - nothing goes to waste!

Not only are you supporting the planet, helping a good cause, you save a fortune (when you shop there), and even earn a few dollars on the side (when you sell the stuff you're looking to get rid of.) They take everything from records and video games, to computer software to old magazines. It's a great way to declutter, go green, and who can argue with a few bucks? The most $$ I've received was around $25, the smallest amount was $3-$4. What do I do with that? Toss it in the vacation fund or the house fund. Either way, it's a great way to go!

But on the way home, I'm stopping at Dunkin' Donuts for my $.50 Iced Coffee - I love these things, and this a fairly good price! Yum!
