French Drain Complete.
A few posts back, I wrote about how we dug trenches around the perimeter of the garage to put in a French drain. We purchased a yard of blue stones from a landscaping company in our area and we picked it up to save on the $50 delivery fee. This pile is a yard of stones. It only cost us $35 for the whole yard and will be enough to fill 3 sides of the garage. Since the delivery was more expensive than the product, we figured we would put in the "labor" of picking up the stones and shoveling it out of the truck when we got it home. It was a lot of heavy lifting, and my goodness my back was sore when we finished shoveling all the stones out of the truck. The things I do to save $50! Hahaha! Sometimes I wish I was less
cheap frugal, but then I start to think how I could spend $50 and I just suck it up and shovel the #$%@ rocks.
