Baroness of bargains

I am a sucker for a deal.  As a result, I open every piece of “junk” mail that might have a cool sample or a good coupon enclosed.  And yes, 95% of the time my sifting, sorting, and scanning ends in nothing more than a pile of discarded papers, with an occasional paper cut needing some triage.  However.  In those rare instances where I do uncover a good find, that wonderful-yet-small 5%, well, those are the moments that keep me going.  Hooked.  “Addicted” to the flyers, and the inserts, and the Sunday circulars.

Sometimes, though, the treasure is less about money, or a sample, or a promotion.  Sometimes the “special something” is an item that makes me laugh out loud.  Like this one:

I appreciate people who seek to turn the mundane into the creative – even something as “boring” as dryer vents.  While I don’t need to have my appliance cleared out any time soon, when I do, I know who I’ll be calling.
