These are still delicious.  BUY AT DOLLARAMA.

NOTED. 

I bought my ear buds at Dollarama for $4.  Great.

Ever browse Amazon and find something hilariously overpriced? Some product where 5 sellers have it listed for $20-30 and a sixth seller has it listed for $387.46? 

Here’s a sweet Amazon deal...  make sure you read the comments....

I had to return a faulty tripod  to Amazon recently...   they emailed me a mailing label with postage already paid.  Returning stuff is easier than I thought it would be and at no expense!

Buying food (even junk food) from a dollar store is just wrong....  I like the fair trade, organic chocolate where a portion of profits go to help wildlife (no, I am not joking).   Way better chocolate than dollar store crap.

I came across one marketplace seller a couple years ago who was trying to peddle Persil Pro Clean 2-in-1 laundry detergent for $6000 a jug.

Will you stop it with the Dollarama candy bar pictures. I broke that habit a couple of years back when I would occasionally pick up the 2 for a dollar ones they had at the front cash.

That's exactly the kind of thing I was thinking of. It has to be some kind of software screw-up, right?  Like the seller has a script to generate the listings, and the script pulls the wrong price out of the database, or the currency conversion is set to the wrong currency, or something like that?

Anyway, it's been over a week and so far my $7 messenger bag has not budged.  I have a hunch that I'll be getting a refund rather than an absurd bargain.

Amazon removed this review, but it's still the funniest thing I've ever read.  You can google Ari Brouillette's reviews on Amazon, they are all funny.

I had a LUPPO.

Kind of tasted like cake, in chocolate bar form.

Exactly! It's like a tiny chocolate cake that you can carry in your purse! It's brilliant!

Women's clothing is famously scarce for not having enough snack holes.

I have a flight suit (2 actually) that were issued to me, totally gender neutral, and snack holes galore. Come to think of, it I'm heading to the closet right now, I think there may be a Snickers bar hiding somewhere.

You could get a European carry-all...

At burning man I carry a rough canvas ... not a purse, but a 'satchel'.  It carries, typically, the basics: 1 litre of water, pack of smokes, an empty tin for candy mints for butts, flashlight, expired passport.
