Today at work I noticed a plethora of ugly Christmas Sweaters. Since I switched groups I missed the e-mail telling us about the 1st Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest. I was one of the judges and took many pictures including the one above. It was hilarious. The winner received a fruitcake as a prize. It was way too funny. Which sweater do you think should have won? LEave me a comment with your choice.
Other than that, slow day. A day and a half left of work and then Christmas starts. Went to the Supermarket with Dad tonight. I used the scanner thing and he did the traditional way, it made separating everything at the end easy because all of my stuff was already bagged. You have to watch yourself in the supermarket or really anywhere that you shop, there are things that make little sense and end up costing you money. For example I picked up a bottle of vitamins it was $11.99 with $3.00 off 300 count. Next to it was the smaller bottle of 100 count. This bottle was $4.99 with $3.00 off a bottle. So I could get 300 count for 8.99 or for $6.00, hmmm I wonder. You gotta check things out. Packaging is made to do that. To make you think you are getting more than you are.
We walked over to the ice cream and there were two brands selling equal amounts of ice cream. One was 2 for $6 and the other 2 for $5 but the 2 for $6 packaging looks bigger, it is not but it certainly looks that way. Only by looking at packaging do you see the real value.
Good luck with the rest of your Christmas Shopping. I am now finished. I picked up a bunch of stocking gifts for Allison tonight. Wait, not done, didn’t get stocking gifts for Eva. I’ll do that Wednesday before the Christmas Party. Now, where did I put that ugly Christmas sweater.
