you get what you pay for....

During Christmas I pulled out a 1000 piece puzzle and we put it together on the breakfast table. We have kept a puzzle going since, putting in a piece here and there in our spare time. A fun way to fill in some blank time while cooking or waiting for dinner.

I have been picking up puzzles at our local church thrift store - since I am there donating about once a week anyway. Puzzles range from $0.25 to $1.00 - quite a bit better than $5 and up for puzzles you put together only once.

The only problem - sometimes things are missing....

So $7.99 = 1000 puzzle
$0.25 = 993 piece puzzle

Cheap or simply more challenging??? Lets go with...we are getting our money's worth!
