I had to run an errand on my lunch hour today. On my way in the car I was pondering my tip-o-day entry . I had a couple ideas rolling around in my head… hmm, maybe some advice on working with pressure treated wood – since I was on my way to Lowes to get some, perhaps another bleachy tip, and then a thought popped into my head. It’s something that my fun-to-hang-out-with wife and I often say to each other.

If you’re out shopping and you see something that you have been looking for, just get it. Don’t make note of it, don’t say it’s not what you came out to get, don’t think about how much it will add to your bill – just get it when you see it.
Because often times you don't see it again.

I rolled that tip around in my head for a while and sorta stumbled on how to phrase it and present it. Then I walked into Lowes and promptly forgot about it.

Until… I saw just such an item.
It’s something I have been looking for. I had seen it once I think… at Lowes or even Home Depot – but not since.
And there it was.
And so I bought it.
And now I’m happy.
And so that’s my tip.

Excellent tip! But you didn't tell us what you bought, tease!

Is Lowes finally selling the toys available at f***ing machines dot com?

Hey! I got to your blog somehow and your 'tip-o-the-day' is very true. My missus always buys one because 'she'll go back for another later' and the thing she wants is never there. I'm always telling her... :)

Good tip, especially since often what I go after-is not there.
