Tom and I just arrived in New York City a few hours ago for a blogging conference and of course after sitting in traffic to get thru the Lincoln tunnel we ended up feeling gross from the heat so I went to put on more deodorant and it crumbled! Deodorant crisis! I can’t go to a conference with out deodorant especially not when we will be walking and riding the subway in the heat!
Thankfully there is a Duane Reade across the street from our hotel so I figured I would just walk over there and get another one. I obviously haven’t bought deodorant in a long time because I almost feel over when I saw they were all $6-$7 for the one that I like! I think Tom was getting annoyed because I stood there for like 3 minutes “trying” to find one cheaper that actually works. He kept telling me just to get one, which ugg that is NOT a cool price for deodorant! Heck I stocked piled them when they were on sale (I don’t remember how long ago, but we were still living in New Jersey so at least 1.5 years, since they don’t go bad or stop working its a great thing to stockpile) and I paid like .50 for each one!
I know New York City in general is more expensive then most places but still $7 was an ouch thought for me! But then I got lucky Tom and I saw a clearance section and of course I can not walk past the orange tags and not look and we saw Suave deodorant on sale for $1.12 and since it was the spray can I said forget it ill just get the other one and suck it up just this once.
Then we were walking back to the other part of the store to check out and we found a Duane Reade Store Coupon for $2 off ANY 2 Suave, Vaseline, St Ives (and something else I dont remember what) coupon which of course I had to run back to the clearance section and get the 2 we saw cause you can’t say no to .12 for deodorant!
