This is an email from my reader Sara:
I have a 16 month old that has just started coloring with crayons. Now back to school is the best time of the year to buy crayons at a bargain…like Publix for .33 cents.
But, over the last year when we go to restaurants for some reason the hostess always gives us a kids menu with crayons even before she knew how to use them.
So I would stick them in my purse and bring them home. You usually get 4 crayons where ever you go eat, sometimes 2 now with the recession and all…but over almost a year of collecting I have 28 crayons in a box I never had to pay for aside from my meal of course : )
So next time you are out to eat don’t leave those crayons on the table! Taken them home!
