I know I wrote about this before, but I had to shake my head again today at what people spend their money on. I know our society gave up on buying only what's necessary a LONG time ago, but two people who came in today take the cake.
So we've had this string of awning lights in stock since last year. They retail for $179.95! I figured that nobody would ever buy these lights, but I sold them to someone who showed just a little bit of interest...for $129.95. I know these people thought they were getting a great deal, and I guess if you're looking for top of the line awning lights...then they got a great deal. But who in their right mind spends that much money on awning lights? And why would you buy awning lights to begin with...?
The next one is a guy who was looking for these special hooks that you can bolt on the exterior of your RV. A kit of two of these little hooks costs $54.00. Then, what does he want to hang on the hooks? A special little garbage bag, so that his kids will always know where to put their garbage. The fancy garbage bag is made by the same company who makes the hooks...total cost of the bag, $72.00. Add the two together, and the 13% tax (welcome to Canada) and he paid $142.38 for a garbage bag. Unbelievable!
