The Hinge Saga Continues
Well I was on the search for “hinges” or something that would work on my wee door and so I used up some ga$oline to drive to town to one of the building stores. $3 for four hinges. $3—- I’m not going to pay $3 on hinges! And so I burn some more fuel and head off to the next building store. They didn’t even have hinges small enough for my purpose.
Next.. more gas$ consumption and I go to the dollar store. I bought a small wooden box and for $1 I got two hinges and a latch. As a bonus I get two small storage boxes (the top and bottom halves after the hinges are removed).
Next, just around the corner and so not too much $$ for gas usage and I stop at Walmart. They have the little hinges and they are less than $3. That’s better than the building store but do I want to pay $3 for 2 sets of hinges when I can get 3 sets of hinges + 3 latches for the same price at the dollar store (plus the bonus boxes)...
End result: $$$ gas consumption later, I have one set of hinges for only $1. :)
(Oh and I looked at watches: Walmart – $15. Second-hand store: $10. Dollar Store: no watches.
