The purpose of this thread is to fight inflation! It seems the RBA is playing a lone hand in their brave pursuit of higher interest rates. errrr, well you know what I mean. OK so this thread is to highlight BARGAINS, where THE PRICE IS RIGHT! Where we laugh in the face of inflation. Inflation? What inflation?
For example, I was in Coles on Sunday, potatoes were 3kg for $1. Now that's a bargain!
OK - quality, you ask. I am no potato expert but I bought two bags (6kg) and they seem to be Sebago - good for baking, roasting etc. No dodgy ones at all, they weren't tiny...just normal potatoes...at 1975 prices (OK, I'm guessing here, but they certainly weren't at a 2008 price).
Now, I get peeved on a thread when I might say hey look at this it's a bargain I bought for $1 ... there is ALWAYS someone who chimes in with "I bought the same thing for 50 cents!" Don't you hate those people? WELL - to the one-uppers, this is your thread! Tell me of the potatoes you bought 3kg for 50 cents, that's what we are here for! Everything is fair game ... just tell us what and where (so we can go there too) and when (no point telling me it back in 1975, ok?).
More examples - computer parts.
I love Dick Smith ... BUT ... USB 2.0 card ...$50, give or take ...
eBay approx. $13! (including postage) ...
BUT WAIT - there's more, USB 2 card at MSY $10!
Now, man (and woman) does not live on potatoes and USB 2.0 cards alone (I come close, though) ... what else is out there that is a stunning bargain?
Help fight the good fight ... the war on inflation. Post early, post often.
