That is what I should be hearing this morning.
A few weeks ago I blogged about an excursion to a ‘dollar store’ in search of Christmas stocking stuffers. (The Perfect Stocking Stuffer?) I enjoyed the trip but for some unknown reason; questionable maturity level is my suspicion, I found it amusing that one of the more prominently featured items were home pregnancy tests.
Well, lo and behold, this morning Yahoo Finance has a feature called “Definitely buy these 15 things at a dollar store”. And what sits proudly ensconced at #7? Home Pregnancy Tests!
“Grocery store pregnancy tests will set you back $10 to $15, but you can find them at some dollar stores for only a buck. You might be wondering whether a $1 pregnancy test is going to be accurate. That’s a good question and, according to this news report, the answer is yes.”
I didn’t know they sold pregnancy tests at grocery stores either. Clearly I am clueless on this topic.
A special shout-out to Sluggy for her comment on my original post:
“Well if you had ever known women who were having “fertility issues” & wanted to achieve pregnancy, you’d know that this crowd goes through predictors and HPTs like a bowl of potato chips……can’t have just one! Beats paying $10 a pop at the local drug store……
She clearly has her finger on the pulse of this marketplace on this one.
I have been educated.
