Bargain therapy

The semester is off to a rip-roarin' start, but I don't have much to report. I went to Walgreens on Tuesday to get some bandages (my heel is still popping open and is going to be a bi7ch to heal up) and got caught in the throes of a back-to-campus sale! Retail therapy will surely help me wee wound, no?

Buy one, get one half price -- and regular price was only 9.99 to start with! They could be crap, or they could be just fine:


1.5 qt. crock pot and 3 cup rice cooker ($14.98 for both) in their new habitat.

My labmate, Lihui, said she had purchased one of these rice cookers several years ago and used it every day for two years. If I can get anything close to that much use from it, I'll be thrilled.

I just made rice in it for the first time this morning and everything seems just peachy! Yay, bargains!

That's all, back to work!

There's not much that retail therapy will not cure. I'm going to engage in a bit of it on my lunch hour!

Congrats on your bargains -- I'm interested in hearing if a crock pot really can take the place of stitches. I hope your heel heals, regardless.

Also, I hope you hit your groove with all of the changes in the new semester. I keep thinking things here will ease up, but I think it's going to be another two weeks until my kids and I get to some sort of "steady state"...
