We went to Meijer (Algonquin) tonight, and I spotted some fun clearance items worth sharing…
Thirty-One home parties popularized this style of utitity tote, but after my dismal experiences with two of their bags falling apart the first time I used them (and their subsequent refusal to replace said bags) I vowed that I wouldn’t buy any future bags from their company. Look what a tote like this usually sells for:
And then, another great deal to wrap up our night. We went to Meijer tonight to replace our boys’ pet fish, Jack, who sadly did not make it to his two-month anniversary of being won at Santa’s Village.
(I should note that Jack’s arrival came as a surprise too. I left all three kids near the park’s big slide while I went to use the drinking fountain. When I returned, all three kids were roaring with laughter, “surprise” in hand. In the minute I was away, my children had walked to the midway. The 17-year-old gave her brother a dollar so he could throw a ball and try to win a goldfish. Well, he succeeded!)
Jack’s passing brought great anguish upon our sons, particularly because I had not yet bought a bubbler for his bowl. After Jack’s funeral in the backyard last week, I promised that we’d buy a new fish to replace Jack and I would buy an air bubbler for Fish #2.
This time around, the boys decided they wanted a Molly, and so while they picked out the perfect fish, we also looked at bubblers. Bubblers were $12.99, not including an airstone, and then we saw this:
Happy Meijer deal hunting! (And now I’m really ready for our next day at the pool!)
