Great Deals!

I've been seeing some signs lately that just make me laugh. Like this one that I walk by in Jersey City every day. I'm not sure if I get the great deals at 1 o' clock or 1 dollar. That's understandable though. The owners or sign makers probably speak English as a second language. The one that really cracks me up is the way Sears, a major retailer, is slashing prices. I was checking out how much a washing machine might cost me as I was procrastinating and trying not to take a trip to the laundrymat. I saw that they had a sale going on. I'm not really sure why they advertised these prices. Is it a marketing ploy? Just stick a slash through it and it seems to be much cheaper. Maybe they assume that the average person won't look at the original price. I'm not sure if you can read the prices in this screen shot, but I assure you that all but one of the orginal prices is a whopping 11 cents more than that sale prices. That's right folks, through May 3rd only you can save 11 cents on their washers.


  1. 11 cents?? Why have I not bought a new one yet!? In fact, I should stock up and give them away as Christmas presents at that price!!

  2. come week long blog-post vacations allowed!
