Surprise Kitchen Renovation Helper : Blue Diamond Almonds




My landlord is a DIY kinda guy - meaning since he only owns a few rental properties when he decides something needs fixed he will do it himself. Since he has a full time job he will do it when he can. So for a few months now he renovated my kitchen cabinets.

What this meant for me is half of my kitchen has been in boxes for a few months too - different halves in different parts of different months. So one of the first things I did was go to the local thrift store St. Vincent de Paul to donate a few items  and I took along some Blue Diamond Blueberry Almonds to fuel my hunt. I like how they fit in my purse without getting smashed, they are tasty and I have plenty to share. I was kind of hoping to find something to purchase for extra storage during construction and it was my lucky day. While I was browsing I heard a little commotion. They were trying to figure out how to get a book case through the back door and then where to put it. So I said I am interested in it and they brought it out to me, went and got the lady in charge and we decided on a price.






Side note: There are St Vincent de Paul stores all over the USA

Their goal is to help people of all faiths and ethnic backgrounds become more self sufficient; not just help them over the rough spots.


Another way Blue Diamond Almonds helped me during the renovation was that I did not always know where things like dishes and silverware were and my landlord was busy in my kitchen - a lot - weekends - every other weekday - so when I was hungry it was Blue Diamond almonds. I just kept a pouch of Blueberry on my new book case, some low sodium Blue Diamond almonds next to my PC and when it was too noisy I retreated to the bedroom with the just sweet enough Salted Caramel Blue Diamond Almonds and cranked up the TV. Thanks for helping me through a rough spot Blue Diamond Almonds!

And yes I picked up a few more things than the book case at St Vincent de Paul. It is for a good cause :D
