There's no such as free
What can one dollar buy you these days?
How about 25 cents? A gumball maybe? Even mechanical kiddie rides at the grocery store are at least 75 cents if not a dollar.
And yet today I found proof that you can in fact find something for
A silicone heat resistant iron pad.
I have an old crummy ironing board that rocks back and forth due a poor design flaw in the nonexistent floor stablizers. When the board rocks - my iron sways and rocks also and that makes me nervous. I never use it in this manner when the kids are running around, but never the less when I saw this iron pad my eyes lit up. Then I looked at the price - $0.25 is what the hook marker said. 25 CENTS? For real? Couldn't pass that up. I was interested to see if the cashier was going to tell me there was a mistake. I have seen these silicone pads for at $3.50 in other stores.
After the cashier rang up my purchase I asked her if the iron pad rang up as $0.25. She said, "It actually rang up as $0.01."
Back Up The Truck!!
1 CENT? They were selling this item for a PENNY?
Um.. yes please!
I guess you can get something for almost nothing!! We'll see how great that "something" is provided this silicone pad isn't defective and melts to my iron. HA! Then this 1 Cent purchase will cost ME a new iron!
