Also, I'll tell you how I've spent money on woot: I see a $5 scarf, I buy three. I see a $4 carving set, I buy it. I see an $8 knife, I buy three. Even then, once tax is added, I momentarily question how much I'm spending. Now, if I go to check out and see my total is over $50 with tax and shipping, suddenly I'm realizing just how much money I'm wasting and just close the window.
Thanks, woot. My husband will be thrilled that my woot days have finally ended after nearly a decade!
actually it was sarcasm. but it will save me money. less purchases means more money in my bank.
I always did like yardsales.

Admittedly, I have never been a huge buyer. Only recently took advantage of the 'unlocked shipping' to make an 'impulse buy'. So, today, I won't even bother trying to follow the Woot-Off. It's not just the $5 everything in a day shipping, it's the incremental degradation of the atmosphere / spirit here. Really kind of sad.
