I have nothing funny to say today except I went to Marshall’s for the first time ever. It is the strangest largest store I’ve ever been inside. That sentence is sort of goofy, but I mean, for a department store of sorts, it has the oddest collection of stuff.
I found a long tube of green apple gumballs just sitting on a shelf. $1.99 – Compare to $2.99. Where am I going to compare it? I don’t know any shops that specialize in gumballs. I’m taking their word for it that it is a deal. Also, it was just sitting on a random shelf as if they found it by mistake and tossed it in the air and that’s where it landed.
I also purchased two pillows and new queen sheets. There was a dedicated section for those, so I felt better about it, but I had distrust about the deal. “Compare at $80” for my $40 sheets. I guess that’s their model though. Put a big retail price on the tag so you’ll feel better about the savings.
I’m not saying they don’t have great deals there, it’s just I never thought to price out gumballs and Calvin Klein sheets. I didn’t even go there to buy sheets!
But I couldn’t pass up a $40 savings. Pass the gumballs.
