In Vince’s blog post, he said he was frugal and many of you doubted that statement. I agree! He truly believes he’s frugal. Sometimes I have to bite my lip to keep from bursting out laughing. Sometimes I bite my lip and still can’t hold back the laughter.
He’s getting ready to get his mushroom growing operation started. He needs wax . . the kind like you use in making jelly. He’s searched every where to find the lowest cost for one pound of Gulf wax. He found it but he has to order it.
Here’s the shipping costs:
Up to 10 pounds, shipping is $7.99.
At 17 pounds, the shipping goes to $9.99.
At 26 pounds shipping goes to $11.99.
At 34 pounds, the shipping is $16.99.
Knowing how much wax there is when you melt one pound of it, I cannot imagine that he’ll need more than 10 pounds.
Guess how much wax he ordered. Just look at those numbers and tell me . . if you thought you needed about 10 pounds of wax and those were the shipping costs, and you were frugal (according to what normal people think), how much wax would you order?
I have to say .. he was placing his order and talking to himself and he said “ok, xx pounds .. ” and I said WHAT?? He said . . that’s the most cost effective shipping. I’m kinda wondering if he ordered a whole UPS truck full of it, what would the shipping costs be? 🙂
