Sink Me!

If you’ve ever seen The Scarlet Pimpernel, you’ll invariably think of Leslie Howard (best known for his role as Ashley Wilkes in Gone With the Wind) and his overstated delivery of that line.
Or maybe it’s just me.

The mother found a sink at Home Depot a few weeks ago. It wasn’t a bad price and it was on sale. But, me being me, I thought I’d shop around including an online search. Sometimes it’s good to be me. I found the sink for $25 less than the Home Depot sale price. Free shipping, too. I patted myself on the back too soon.

The Home Depot sale ended a few days ago. I didn’t care because I had my bargain sink. Wrong!
When I clicked on the link I kept earlier today, the price had nearly DOUBLED. I was livid. One page still showed the old price but if you clicked on the item itself, this new, obscene price came up instead. I decided to look again. D*mn, that was smart!

I found the sink at for $15 LESS than the other site’s ORIGINAL price. And, it can be shipped to a local affiliated store for free.

So, sink me indeed!

Is the place that jacked the price the same that you mentioned to me? In any event, glad you found it someplace else (and even cheaper!)

You are a great bargain finder! Can you find me a short-term apartment for mere dollars in the DC area?

Did you buy it? I'd buy it before the price jumps around again. Then agian... it may jump lower, based on your luck...

Gene -- It was indeed THAT place. (I'll deal with them later.) Looks like you already found one anyway. Congrats!

Vicki -- Thank you. I like to think that I get the most of every dollar and every hour of sweat equity I put in that house. Believe me, if I thought I could find you a place, I'd try! :-)

Jennifer -- I did! No more monkeyin' around, waitin' for the price to go up! I don't think I'm going to get it any cheaper.
