By MarieN . Created on Nov 26, 2021
Many of us have become "bargain hunters" in these past few years, while some of us have always loved a good bargain at any time. Is there a particular item you may have purchased that didn't cost a lot of money, but has become a great investment. It can be any thing at all, like a nice wallet, a pair of comfy shoes, perhaps a portable chair, or any other item(s) that saves you time, works as well, (or better) than a similar pricier item. Pictures are only for examples, pleaze add your own favorite bargain items.

Hey M A, likewise, good to see you here. Thanksgiving was good. We were out of town for a couple of days. Glad you Loved the treats I sent via party drone. My mom told me once, Woodpeckers like grape jelly. 😉

So, Marie, would one of yours be a bottle of strawberry-scented shampoo?;-))

LOL! M A, I probably have some form of strawberry scented shampoo, but mostly just use my 20+ year favorite, Pantene. :-)

Marie, I was thinking of your strawberry hair when you met your Lefty love. For your upcoming anniversary, WW/NN. Or, isn't he allowed that close anymore, haha, get the husband spray - I still want a bottle of that stuff, LOL. Ok, back to romance, or, at least, acceptance, lol - dinner out for a nice evening w. your love and your smartly saved piggy bank (gift cards) in a relaxing place where you can comfortably ...

During hurricane season the battery operated fan was a plus. Gotta have air flow while it's still storming outside until the generator gets started up.

Hey, Marie :-) Mine is either the big, round floaty thing I get to float on at the beach, or, it's the pump to blow it up, haha. Nice poll 🌈

Thanks M A! I have a few more that are quite handy and all under $25, I recently (last year) purchased an electric water kettle. It sure comes in handy for heating water. I drink hot tea on occasion, and feel this is a much better way than heating the cup/water in the microwave. We have been "cold" enough, (at least in the evenings) in FL for many cups of hot chocolate. YUM! :-))
