.91 Humidifier

January 3rd, 2013 at 06:07 am

I was researching humidifiers yesterday online -- it was pretty clear I was in dire need, between my cold and my dry, dry condo. I was very tempted by a $100 model by Humio which was attractive, had a night light option and could also do aromatherapy. Plus it had great reviews. But I couldn't bring myself to spend the money. I decided to check out Walgreens after work, since I still had money on my gift card. When I got there, I picked up a coupon booklet and found a coupon for $5 off a $30 humidifier. I also picked up a big bottle of Advil, and when I checked out, the bill was $19.28. I figure that $18.35 went to the Advil (including tax) so the humidifier was .91. A $99 savings!

I set it up last night and found it easy to fill and operate and not too ugly. It was pretty loud, but the white noise was soothing. I wouldn't try to watch TV while using it, but I don't have a TV in my bedroom anyway!

I'm very pleased with my bargain.

I also stopped at Batteries Plus and got a battery for my car remote for $4.30.

Something a little odd happened a few days ago. I came home and found a note under my door with profuse apologies for entering my home. It was a pet sitter, who was supposed to go to a different unit. The interesting thing was, the key he had worked for mine! I called the property manager, who was very surprised that I use the same key for entering the building and entering my unit. I have to call a locksmith and get my front door lock changed. It makes me wonder how many units are opened by the building key. Anyway, I'm going to get it fixed.

The up side is that the pet sitter cleaned the litter box and filled the cat's water before realizing he was in the wrong place!

I'm starting to feel better. I slept well last night and my head is clear. Which is making me feel very grateful!

    That is too funny that someone cleaned out the litter box for you! So glad they were honest. I don't think I could live without a humidifier, well I have and it was not fun. I hope your little unit helps out!

    Sorry about the pet sitting using the key into the wrong place. Better to have an honest person use it and admit it than a dishonest one!

    New meaning to the words "cat burglar". That is just a hilarious story!

    That is too funny about the pet sitter cleaning your litter box (well, it's funny only because it was an honest person .. but still. Big Grin ) I'd be getting my lock changed ASAP after finding out about that though.

    Both a nice and a scary story. Refilling my humidifier right now!
