I lost my prescription tri-focal glasses in the power outage last week, and I have been wearing old reading glasses (+225), which did not have the power I needed.
I found a pair of glasses at the grocery store, the right strength (+275), but they were $19.95. Too much for a single pair of reading glasses, especially since you can get a pair at the Dollar Tree for a dollar. Granted $1.00 glasses fall apart quickly - but sheesh - $20.00 for a pair of glasses that I will soon lose is too much moolah.
So today after work (work work work!) I went to Costco and got 3 pair of reading glasses for $18.00.
(That's not really them, but they do have some fun looking glasses there.)
They are a better quality that Dollar Tree, come with their own individual storage bag cleaning cloths and three pair might get me to next Christmas (yeah, right!), when I can get another pair of glasses on the VSP insurance plan.
So I have another year of wearing my glasses at the end of my nose and looking down and up at people at the same time.
I also got 10 pound of potatoes, 8 pounds of onions, 3 different kinds of berries, 12 containers of floss, three cartons of Silk, 3 pounds of broccoli and salad.
Oh and potato chips. Which I so needed.
Ahhh, the joys of Costco consumption. Wait, isn't that a Victorian disease? Oh please! Now I have the vapors!
