Woot!

Have any of you heard of Woot? Have any of you been to their web site?

It is a web site that holds one day sales on all kinds of stuff. Hubs is really into checking their stuff out.

Every now and then they will offer what is called a random bag of crap for only a $1.00.

I know sounds stupid. Some times it is and other times they have awesome stuff. This bag of said crap sells out in seconds. Seconds I tell you.

The catch you don't know what you are getting. It might be some comic books and a note pad and pencils. While other times it might be a flat screen TV or a Fender guitar.

I know! A flat screen TV!

Well last week Hubs was one of the elite that was able to purchase one of these bags of crap for the low low price of $1.00 plus $5.50 for shipping.

Here is what he got in the box:
2 random comic books, 1 carry case for stuff for your computer, and this.

Who cares that it is a little older model. It retails for about $200.00. Hubs got it for only $6.50! I have actually been looking at a new one. I dropped mine on R8's field day this past school year and broke the clasp to the battery cover. Now I have a nice shiny silver pipe clear wrapped around it to hold the battery cover on so it will work.

I immediately laid claim to it. Hubs wouldn't need it, I'm the one uses it to capture our memories. But Hubs did say I could have it.

**Note**
I would have taken it anyway and he would have never said a word.

But I owe Hubs a huge thank you for staying up and checking the web site at mid night to see what item would be on sale.

Thanks Hubs, I love you!

Never heard of this, but my college daughter says, "woot!" all the time, so I have to tell her about this!
