Adventures at the Dollar Tree

Yesterday we went to the Dollar Tree to pick up things that you should really only pay a dollar for - wrapping paper (but not tape) and silly things for Xmas day games.

In the office section for $1 was an LCD lamp that plugs into your USB port. I had seen these advertised in other magazines for considerably more than a dollar, so I took a flyer on it.

Plugged in and clipped on my laptop and I type away at 11:53 pm with the missus snoozing beside me. How cool is that? For $1 the LCD lamp is made, sold, the Dollar Tree folks make money (as does the manufacturer) and I get lots of consumer surplus.

Markets are so cool...
