I do have help in the form of a college kid who lives with me. He keeps insisting he's my son so I won't charge him room and board. He cuts up some of the clothing I upcycle, puts the ribbons in the gift bags, walks things down to the post office and anything else I can guilt him into doing.

Please take a minute to like me on Facebook so you can keep track of some of my great deals.
