Kimberly hit both Target and Wal-Mart this week to restock on everything from trash bags and bleach to soap and batteries.
She also used part of my severance check to buy some household items we’ve been needing — an iron, a new cordless telephone because all of the ones we have are broken and a vacuum cleaner.
Throw in the numerous smaller items and the impulse buys like candy bars and sodas and the tab was quite pricey. So were the sales taxes. Aunt Virginia sucked another $19.97 out of her pocketbook.
Yet another reason to avoid the big box stores like the plague.
