Life Out Here

Just a small way to keep my friends and family, who are strewn about the country, in The Know about my life in Seattle.

It Doesn't Pay To Be Cheap Part II

We have a store out here called Big Lots. Mostly junk, but good when you need candles or cheesy decorations. I stopped in there last week and they had a ton of my favorite bath gel - Healing Garden Green Tea. I bought 2 for $2.99 when they're normally $8. I also liked the smell of manderine so I picked up some bath salts.

I ran a bath last night using the new bath salts. I left the bathroom for a few minutes while the tub was filling up and when I came back in, it smelled like a wet, dirty dog in there. I ran my hand through the water and smelled it - ick. So that's why it was so cheap....

I drained the tub, ran another bath using the green tea gel. It smelled good, but not exactly like my other green tea products (that I paid full price for).

Yep, there is a reason some things are cheap.
Note to self...
