So I popped up the the Amazon Friday Sale this morning and found myself wondering what exactly people with money are buying, and am I really so very far from the norm, with my frugal ways?
Case in point: Front and center on the Friday Sale page are these shoes. Now, I’ll grant you that they are cute. Adorable, even. (I’m only slightly put off by the ubiquitous “unknown binding” line under the product name. Huh?) But they’re infant shoes. For $35.89. Which—I gather—is supposed to thrill me, because normally these shoes are $54.95.
This sort of thing just blows my mind. I mean, someone must be buying them. Me, I’m just the sort of cheapskate who says things like “Infant shoes? Seriously? They can’t even walk!”
You want a sale price I can get excited about? How about this Calphalon stock pot for $39.99. Now that is a deal. And won’t be outgrown in three weeks.
Or maybe this Roomba Discovery or the Roomba Scheduler, which, what’s happening here? Is Amazon putting Roombas on every Friday sale? That would be awesome, because I believe that whole “chicken in every pot” thing is so yesterday. Today’s politicians should totally be promising a Roomba in every family room. (And don’t forget coupon code FALLSAVE for another $25 off!)
I’m also seriously considering jumping on the luxury sheets train with these 800 thread count sheets. (Or! I could go whole-hog to these sinful 1000 thread count sheets!) In fact, if I buy two sets, I can use that FALLSAVE coupon… hmmmmm….
And I know I highlighted this before, and I know it’s too much money for a sane person to spend (even if it is a really good deal), but I want one of these.
