You Know You're Never Going to Be in Glamour Magazine When

$24 for a single Lip Gloss?

For that price you can get a 7 piece flexible ratcheting wrench set from Harbor Freight.

  1. $24 can give you half a tank of gas, or some great steaks to toss on the BBQ..) We love to grill. getting a grill maybe this weekend. first time in 7 years. Way too long with out.

    My wife and girls don't use make up much. Mostly the girls for dance and that's it.

  2. 24 bucks is crazy, that isn't what a guy looks at anyway! Now if you had a wrench sticking out of your pocket, whoa, look here a girl with a wrench, every guy's dream.

  3. To paraphrase a bible quote, lip gloss is transitory, a ratchet set abides forever! Sound wisdom, what!

  4. I shudder when I pay $6.98 for L'oreal lip color which comes with a "clear coat stick" which reminds me of a car finish. I still love Harbor Freight !

  5. I've never had much luck with Harbor Freight tools lasting very long, however I will buy the ones that it doesn't matter if they break (like for spares or loaners.) And there was that one time when I went shopping for a "nice dress" and came home with a new circular saw instead. heh. (Still have the saw, too, LOL.) The closest I'll ever get to lip gloss is Burt's Bees tinted lip balm.

  6. When we lived in Tampa, the fancy hosiery store was located right next to the [Fruit logo computer company] Store in the mall near TPA.

    $50+ pantyhose *on sale*. I thought the sign was a misprint when I first walked by.


    I actually had to brave the mall here last week after the dry cleaners found insect damage in my best interviewing coat. It turned out that the endearing moth-eaten look of the chair at my last interview was the end result of ... moths!

    We are officially out of PDX at the end of June. Not soon enough IMHO.

  7. The last time I bought nail polish, it was too use as touch up paint on our tandem! And before that, it was used as primer sealant!

  8. That will just about cover a box of 9mm ammo at Wally World...

  9. I pay $9 once a year for a tube of clear gloss that goes in my purse. Then, I put it in the table beside my chair and dig out what's left when I want it on while sitting here. Actually, it is more on the line of Burt's Bees, but from Revlon. I spend more money at Lowe's on little things than I do on makeup of any kind.

  11. Ha! You got that right for most of us.... :)

    But, you don't need lip gloss.

  12. OK its worth $24 if it comes in bacon or hoppes #9

  14. I bought a Brisket for the BBQ for about that price.

  15. immagikman - those of you who have laughed (which is not the intended emotion) at Twilight will get this. . .

  16. Og nailed it.
    As Naturegirl said.
    Some HF tools are worth it.
    I can use a disposable oscillating saw. Not a disposable circ saw.
    And their ratcheting box wrenches hold up for the intermittent use.

  17. Ha! I'm with the Burt's Bees crowd for tinted Lip Balm. $24 dollars would do wonders for my outdoor gardening...

  18. I'm the oldest looking woman where I live. Not because I am the oldest, but because I'm the only one without dyed hair and makeup.

    But walk with me through LOWE'S, HOME DEPOT, or HARBOR FREIGHT, and I'll show you the HAPPIEST old woman down here.

  19. That $24 would make a pretty good dent in the price of a brick of primers or a pound of Bullseye, if such a thing is to be found. Unbelievably, I can find them easier than I can a brick of .22 LR!

  20. Harbor Freight crap tends to break on the second use (if you're lucky)... sigh
