T if any of you Fellows want to use my system its Okay with me provided you Don t move to our Block basically stated my approach consists of two Steps 1. Buy things first and 2. Sit around and watch the fun. Exploiting this system a few months ago i bought a new hand operated egg beater for my wife because her old one weakened after 14 years of faithful service. The eggs have finally she said sadly. Til have to have a new a Paragon of generosity i skipped out and bought her one within the hour. Well sir the word soon rippled around the neighbourhood. Pretty am the Abe fitches bought a new Freezer the Vinsons turned up with a double oven Range and the find lays completely carried away with the spirit of Competition had their entire Kitchen refurnished. Just to prove that this was no Flash in the pan a utile later i invested in a set of recapped Snow tires for our car. Nothing ostentatious just Black Snow tires.

I think i pulled my greatest coup one autumn afternoon when i was out raking leaves. I looked up and saw this huge furniture Van inching along the Street obviously looking for a delivery address. Thinking quickly i signalled the Driver to Back into our driveway where the lettering on the sides of the Van would be visible for at least two blocks in either. Direction. By talking rapidly on a wide variety of topics to hold the Driver s interest i managed to keep him there for a Good 15 minutes. I had t spent a cent but my Little strategy paid off. One family started the Ball rolling the very next Day with a 21-Inch television set another bought a pair of drum tables in Cherry Wood and someone else got caught for new dining room furniture. Some Day i d like to buy a new Lawn chair or two but 1 honestly Don t know whether my neighbors can afford it. 10 family weekly september
