Winning at Powell’s
Posted on February 24th, 2013
Because nothing cheers me up like new (or used) books, this afternoon I took Pea to Powell’s, where I traded in some books for credit and bought more books. What makes me happier? All the books I traded in were freebies for review (which I dutifully did), so the trip cost a whopping $1.90 over the store credit.
And Pea bought her own books with allowance/gift money. We’ve been working on teaching her the value of money (literally and figuratively). Earlier this week, she bought herself something she’d wanted from the zoo that I would not buy her (a pink plush dolphin in a furry purse), and today she bought the books. It’s pretty cool.
