I went to Bed Bath and Beyond Budget in Culver City today to play the 20% coupon game (where you’re supposed to feel like you got a deal by using their 20% off coupons to offset their marked-up prices), and found the place surprisingly empty. Was this a sign of the Next Great Depression?
Granted, it was mid-afternoon, likely an off hour between lunch time and after work. And perhaps BBBB is not a Christmas shopping destination, except for practical people like me.
vacuum cleaner bags? you shouldn’t have! really, you shouldn’t have.
Indeed, the parking lot was pretty full, so maybe hordes of Christmas shoppers were next door at Target, where you can buy toys and iPods with your household cleaning fluids.
I did my part, picking up a fancy photo album covered in nice dead cow for one of “my people.” But I have to wonder what Christmas is going to be like this year, in Culver City and elsewhere.
