Kathy: This post is going to go one of two ways for our readers – “Ooooh, really?” or “OMG, me, too.”
Red: Yeah, I know. I don’t get it though. I see lots of Mercedes and Lexus’ at these two stores.
Kathy: My theory is people that have money know how to keep it. Then there’s the poor schmucks like me who love and actually need a bargain.
Red: I’m excited – let’s get busy with the bragging rights. That drain opener stuff you go last week – tell ‘em
Kathy: Yeah, exciting all right – cheapest at the grocery store was $3.98 – got a bottle of not-name-brand drain opener and it fixed me right up. Drain cleared up in about two hours. I get Palmolive or Ajax dish soap for $.99 always and my favorite brand of fabric softener sheets – ClingFree - are 40 sheets for a $1 and smell better than any of the other brands.
Red: I personally get turned on by the plastics. You know I’m an organizing freak, unlike my creator. We really did a number, last month, on the cupboards for less than $5.
Kathy: Yeah, really! Organization is a big thing in an RV. You do love those projects, don’t you? I have to say you get a little bossy when we take on an organizational task.
Red: What can I say? I like to know where your things are!
Kathy: DollarTree also has greeting cards 2 for $1. The local store even has American Greetings for $1 each. Do you know what that means?
Red: You send a helluva lot of cards?
Kathy: (laughing) Yes, that’s true. Just sent my grandkids Halloween cards. I do love to send cards.
Red: Okay, best bargain ever for taste and pure gladness?
Kathy: I know, I know. The Diet Snapples? Two for $1? Less than ½ price. Did we stock up or what?
Red: (chuckling) I’m still opening cupboards and finding some stashed away.
Kathy: You can’t beat it for a buck!
