    Wife and I went garage sale-ing yesterday. They're everywhere Labor Day w/e.
    She found a milk crate with 15 lbs. of the stuff inside.
    Got the milk crate too, so I can emulate Dennis.;lol
    This is a sale put on by the local animal shelter, and everything is donated. We added some zippers and a couple other small things into the crate and paid $6 for the whole shebang. I can make firestarters 'til I'm sick of it.
    Saw a guy walk out with an old Evinrude 40 HP. Don't know what he paid.

    Gee Dave, the milk crate was worth the whole price! ;) Good find for sure. Maybe you should consider making some candles now too for when the electric goes out.

    Not that I need one, but it would have been nice to find a splitter to go with the crate.:cool:
