The Things You Buy…

I took a trip to Target, Wal-Mart and Marshalls today in Steelyard Commons. I had to laugh about three products I found.

1.) My new stainless steel garbage can. Why are they priced at $80? I didn’t pay that. You have to look at “Clearance” endcaps. I found a simplehuman trash can that retailed originally for $79.99 and I got it at Target for $34.00. I don’t feel like I threw out my money out with the trash.

2.) Some cereal I bought today exclaims “Now Better Tasting”. I was excited to see that now I’m going to really like it. I liked the taste before. After tasting it, I didn’t notice any difference in the taste.

3.) Another product I got says “Best If Used by 23:09 DEC 14, 2008”. So if I cook it at 11:10pm that day, it’s not going to be as good? I don’t think products need to be so exact.
