More Ikea goodness... for 99c

ikea clockWell, we're back from our family vacation. Posts on that later, after I get time. (This post was done a couple of weeks back - stored up for your enjoyment today.)

So we bought a second car. Life was just getting impossible with only one. Time and again, we faced the situation of each adult needing to be in a different place at the same time. So we bought a 1993 Eagle Summit (aka Mitsubishi Mirage/Lancer) from my father in law, who no longer needed it. He gave us a great deal, and we bought a known history. Funny enough, though it only has two doors, it has become our main car, because it gets better fuel economy than the minivan. All five of us fit inside.

It's the most basic model. No right-side mirror. No clock. Thus...

Yes, I bought this clock for 99c at Ikea. It's not the prettiest clock, but it does the trick. Actually, before that, I bought a special car clock from Target for about $6 or 8 - and it blacked out whenever the interior temperature hit over 90 degrees fahrenheit! So the 99c Ikea clock wins the race.

No right side mirror?? That's odd...

The first car that I remember my parents having only had one mirror. It was on the right because a left side mirror is fairly useless in the UK unless you're overtaking someone. The car we had didn't really do overtaking.
