I`d Buy That for $2
So those lucky numbers of yours weren`t so lucky. Not the end of the world. After all, two dollars doesn`t get you much these days. Wait a minute, yes it does! Like four postage stamps at the Post Office; two of anything at the Dollar Tree or two screwdrivers at Lowes.
Two dollars can also pay 20 days in late fees at the public library.
"Anyone who lives in Burleigh County can get a library card. It`s free of charge," said Bismarck Library Head of Circulation Christine Kujawa.

Two cans of pasta sauce. Four pounds of bananas. Ten boxes of macaroni and cheese, with a coupon. Two waffle cones at TCBY on Wednesday.

The God`s Child Project is seeking even more donations for people in Guatemala after an earthquake hit the country earlier this month.
