    So, I have been searching CL forever trying to find Polycarbonite (sp?) Corrugated panels for the roof of the back run of our chicken coop trying to save money because we have already spent more than we meant to and we are on a tight budget with Christmas around the corner. Anyways, hubby and I gave in to buying brand new, galvanized metal panels yesterday for $70. Ugh. (Surprisingly, the metal panels are cheaper than the other panels.) Then....last night at around 6:30pm, I happend to run across a post for (8) 10' pieces of Poly for $5 total! SAY WHAT!!!??? [​IMG] They were posted 5 hours earlier and we knew lots of people have "wanted" posts for these panels so we thought they would be gone....BUT, they were still available!!! So what if they were an hour away....off we went! We brought $5 and a carton of eggs.[​IMG] We were happy to see that the panels were in like new shape other than needing to be sprayed off. [​IMG]

    Now....those $70 panels are going back today!!
