    Hey girl,
    I just read in Real Simple magazine lately that Habitat for Humanity has some stores where they sell items that were purchased for homes but not used for some reason or another. They sell the items for a great price, and proceeds go to HFH, so it’s for a good cause. If you already know about this, great! But just in case you didn’t, I wanted to tell you so you could check it out for anything from appliances to the kitchen sink. I’m going to check one out in Gwinnett county soon.
