We’ve been decluttering fools this week! 238 items gone and basically all our boxes unpacked (kiddos still have some to go through but that will take time).
Now some of you will recognize the company name. How many of you remember T G & Y? How many of you remember the old pre-computer cash registers? Who remembers having to make change – not the register telling you how much to give the customer? Who remembers putting these kind of stickers on every item before it was sold? The memories of our first “real” job!
Barb worked for them from 1977 – 1982. She was making $2.20 per hour when she started. Ended making $4.90 per hour. She never shopped there after leaving since all stores in our area were closed.
John’s first “real” job was with the county. He worked every Saturday for “a real paycheck” washing and gassing county vehicles. Back then, it was cheaper to hire high school kids than to use an automated car wash.
This sticker has been floating around our stuff for over 33 years! It has survived our getting married and moving into 3 different places. It survived our flood. It survived a house with children, dogs, and a cat. What did it fall off of? How did it end up on the kitchen floor?
This little sticker is a survivor! If it can make it intact, so can we!
