Life Tip on Q-Tips: No Penny Pinching

Reasons why the Extra 99 are Worth Every Red Cent:

    • It is your ears!!! (They come in handy from time to time. Not so much when you are reading my wonderful thoughts or, say, attempting to ignore your boss; but still! There are many reasons to like them. Bobby Dylan is one reason, Birds are another)

    • Pulling cotton remnants out of your ear from the pervious cleaning during the current cleaning seems counter productive

    • Mid-swab you notice that the cotton has moved down the stick and you are now just scraping your ear with a plastic stick

    • A PLASTIC STICK, it’s bad enough you are sticking things in your ear – don’t make them hard sharp objects

    • Only the “real –thing” seem to do that amazing trick of fitting in the cotton swab holder perfectly with that swirl look

    Many life lessons are learned the hard way - that said, the easy way isn't always the best way, but with Q-tips it may be, read and take heed!

    You and William are on the same page. He told me that he'd send me a check for the 87 cents whenever I needed Q-Tips so I'd quit buying the cheap shit.

    Oh this is so true. I can't tell you the number of times of purchased the knock-off Q-tips, because I was saving 70 whole pennies! Of course, it goes without saying that that seventy cents in savings was whittled down to zero after it would require six q-tips to clean one ear...
