Wednesday Tip Day- Be open to "deals"

Be open to finding gifts or deals in places you least expect them!

On a recent night we took an unplanned detour (ok, we were lost) into the Adirondack Mountains. 
As we meandered through the backroads looking to reconnect with reality my husband yelled out, "Free Vegetables!"  He certainly caught my attention.  He had spotted a basket in someone's front yard full of summer squash, zucchini and cucumbers.  I turned the car around and he jumped out to grab a few of the veggies.

LOL, sounds like someone had too many zucchinis! What a bonus for you, though. It's almost as if you were meant to be lost that day!
My sister has a farm in Upstate New York. We all met in Ohio at my mother's for a family reunion this summer, and she bought tons of vegetables. I've never seen such huge zucchinis. She told me that she had to call every friend and neighbor to take some because they grow like nuts if you don't pick them.
Alas, I don't like zucchini. But I'd take the cucumbers! We love home made pickles around here.
