Craig Daniger: “Hurry up with the next chapters!”
Thanks, Craig. Glad you’re enjoying it.
“Note the dynamics of ‘economy sizes.’ In 1962 you could buy three times as much Revlon Velvety Nail Enamel Remover for sixty cents as you could for thirty-five cents. But you weren’t hurting Revlon; the extra two ounces, including the larger package, cost a mere 3.3 cents. The markup on the extra two ounces was even greater than on the first ounce.”
Buy in bulk. It’s better for everybody.
Speaking of which: Last month I went to the Sharper Image web site and saw they had auctions. I put in to buy the super deluxe roll-on airplane suitcases they sell for $289 or more. The bidding was up to $90 with several days to go, so I bid $130 — for 3 of them — never expecting to get even one. Got all three for $100 each. I now glide effortlessly through the airport and have half my Christmas shopping done.
