Penny Pyncher is known throughout her Elm Street neighbourhood for her habit of 'borrowing' things from her neighbors and then neglecting to return them. In fact, every weekday last week she appeared at a different neighbour's doorstep to borrow something different (including detergent). Use this info and the clues below to determine what Penny borrowed from each neighbour and on which day she borrowed it.

1. Penny asked to borrow the eggs the day before she went to the Avery house, but sometime after she asked for the trash bags.

2. Her Friday visit to the Wolceks wasn't for the purpose of borrowing cheese.

3. Penny was at the Norris house sometime before Mrs. Simon lent her a loaf of bread.

4. She visited the Harkin house on Wednesday.

Tuesday - Simon - Bread
Wednesday - Harkin - Eggs
