Amaryllis Bargain part 2

Category: Gardening | Posted: Tue Jan 13, 2015 12:00 pm

My wife was thrilled with the amaryllis that I found for 69 cents each. So much so that we decided to go back and get the rest of them (I'll admit, it was more my idea than hers).

So, we make it to Walmart and put the eight remaining amaryllis in the buggy. My wife then mentioned that she really liked the amaryllis she had seen growing in glass jars. I told her that I thought I had seen some just inside the garden shop door. Sure enough, we stepped inside and found them.

Just like the other ones they weren't priced, nor was a sign posted. We put one in the buggy and made our way to one of the price checking scanners. We got there, scanned the barcode and both if us uttered the same bewildered expression, "Whaaaat?"

We couldn't believe our eyes, so I grabbed another one and scanned it. Are you ready for this? It read two cents. You read that right... two cents!

So, being the hoarders that we are we made our way back to the garden shop and filled our buggy with every one of them. We ended up with seventeen. Seventeen amaryllis bulbs for thirty-four cents! Sounds crazy, but it's true.

I can never outdo my wife when it comes to bargain hunting. In the end she managed to get seventeen amaryllis bulbs for less than half of what I paid for one... and I only paid 69 cents!

Oh my that's GOT to be the bargain of the year!! I wish I'd been there when they were selling them off at that price. I can hardly believe that they were only 2 cents each!!
