The art of the bargain 1
Today I did a typical trek to a few 2nd hand shops and a pawn shop after I played soccer this afternoon. There's about a dozen 2nd hand shops and pawn shops in town. I usually stop through one a month sometimes more. Today's bargain cost me only a buck and nine cents ($1.09).
For .10 at St. Vincent's I picked up a soccer skills book with a younger David Beckham on the cover. Then at the ARC I purchased an old MP3 player, a Virgin Pulse VP 1 to be exact for .99. The MP3 only holds around 192Mbs but it had some interesting modern lounge music on and an ABBA song. I'll use it for exercise. The Smart Media Card that came with it is worth upwards of $32.
