Today, Chad and I went to yard sales. I didn’t have any luck finding books, but we did buy a lot of great movies. All of these movies are VHS except for Red Dragon which is a DVD. We also bought another VCR (which works perfectly), so now we have a total of three. All of the movies and the VCR cost us under $15. I think that’s pretty awesome. There are more yard sales next weekend, so I might get more goodies. Here are the movies that we got today:
