    I went to lowes with my boys to get away from my wife for a while and while walking up and down the isles i came upon a few bundles of insulation that were tore open. The stock person in the isle was cursing at it since it is blown insulation and leaked a little fluff balls on the floor. I said to her that i love damaged items and for the right price ill rid her of these problematic insulation bales. She looked at me and said how does 5 bucks each sound. I promptly threw 3 bales originally priced at 27 each onto my flat cart. I was happy for the deal and decided to see if the plants in the nursery were on clearance yet. To my dismay they were still regular price and the only thing healthy out there was crappy mums. Then my boys yell for me to come over to them. My boys are only 6 year old twins and they spotted 7 bags of green supreme pellets that had a little tear in them for a buck a peice. There were rebagged with the original torn bag inside. I picked it up and could not feel a difference between them and a sealed full bag. I loaded them up and got one heck of a deal. I guess when they say that your kids are always watching and learning they are right. I was so proud of them that we enjoyed some 5 guys burgers with the money we saved.

    For $22 you walked out with 7 bags of pellets and 3 bails of Insulation? Wow.... Great deal...

    That insulation will help to save you a few bags of pellets this season. Win-Win-Win ;)

    Ive got 120lbs of turman in the hopper and next in line is the green surpreme. Its a cold night here in pa with the thermostat reading 42 degrees outside tonight i may fire the stove in the morning. Im sure those 1 dollar pellets will feel nice if the house would ever cool down. Its nearly midnight and the house is still 76 degrees.

    I have found the pellet bags at 1/2 off, never $1.00 each. You taught those boys well!

    There is a new show on TV called Extreme Cheapskates, you would make them proud!
