What Does $5.00 Get You?

02 Oct

PlantsFive bucks gets you over $300.00 worth of plants if your timing is right. Check out what we brought home from Lowes.

When we went to Lowes, we weren’t looking to purchase any plants, but we usually make it a point to peruse their outdoor area. When we arrived, there was a lady with tons of plants on her cart who was uncontrollably giddy. She couldn’t help but share the cause for her excitement to each passerby. She exclaimed that she was buying all those plants for only $5.00 and went on to explain to us how this incredible deal worked.

Basically, the Garden Center was expecting a shipment of new plants and needed to clear some space quickly. The deal offered was as many of a variety of marked plants you could fit on a cart for $5.00. With a double decker cart in tow, we began our challenge to “Fill the Cart”. When all was tolled, we had crammed 42 plants which was regularly priced at over $300 onto our cart. Not bad for a meager $5.00.
