So I was in Target this past weekend doing some Christmas shopping . . . well, actually that's a lie . . . I really was just tagging along with some friends who were doing some Christmas shopping . . . I was mainly there to hang out with them and for the meal at the Roadhouse. Anyways, I was surprised to see Target selling these boxes full of pine cones dipped in candle wax for use as fire starters . . . I think they were selling 8 of them for $15. Now I'm surrounded my pine trees at home and this year I've got a ton of pine cone drops . . . and my wife has plenty of old candles so I figure between all of the pine cones and old candles I'm sitting on a small fortune. But wait, it gets better . . . if you go to the Target website you'll see that they're packaging these pine cones with some bows, white birch sticks (not even an entire round or split) and sticking them in a cheap box and selling these gift baskets for $20-$60. I think I've just found a way to replace all that money I lost in my 401K.
