As I mentioned recently, I now have a dvd of chair exercises. One of the recommendations is to use a straight back chair, such as one used at the dining table. Mine are somewhat tall and rounded, and not really practical for this purpose, and they don't recommend folding chairs. I decided to check out some garage sales to see what I might find.
Friday is trash day in my neighborhood, and as I was taking a couple of bags of weeds out to the curb, I noticed my neighbor a few doors down had set out a dining room chair. Elise and I walked over to it, and when the neighbor came out with more trash, I asked if he minded if I took the chair. Not a problem. I got it home, and other than a stained cushion and a couple of wobbly legs, it looked to be in decent condition.
Here's my 50 cents chair. Heckuva deal. :)
