Basking in the Bliss of Baths and Bargains

There’s nothing like seeing a product I use slapped with a clearance sticker as the cheaper it is the higher my euphoria rises.  Ever since I received a box of cubed bath fizzies years ago I’ve been enthralled by them.  It’s almost scientific when you think about it because when placed in warm or hot water the bath bomb effervesces similar to that of an Alka-Seltzer except in a bathtub.  Having used several types of bath melts including round, squared and even oval-shaped they really are totally tubular because the hotter the water the quicker they fizz and bubble up thus dissipating leaving the water colored, scented (unless they’re free of fragrance and dye) and one’s skin softer.  Using a red bath bomb could be the ultimate prank for a couple of reasons.  The first could be used by a female screaming for her boyfriend, fiancé or husband to come into the bathroom and when he sees the water is all red he’ll think it’s blood and she could tell him she’s miscarrying terrifying the poor bastard then immediately yell “April Fools!” or “Psych!” at which point he’ll probably fall to the floor while clutching his chest.  The other could be if a couple both have large amounts of life insurance policies on each other and one wants to pretend they were murdered while in the bathtub which may result in the spouse walking in and becoming so horrified at the sight they could end up having a fatal heart attack or a stroke.  Cha-Ching!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

 

While I enjoy what bath fizzers have to offer I can’t and won’t buy them unless they’re on clearance since even 1/2 off is often times too pricey.  For example, the product da Bomb Bath Fizzers were ingeniously created by two sisters when they were an astonishing ten and eleven-years-old.  To be entrepreneurs at that age is truly estimable but at the same time I just can’t justify spending $7.50 or even $5.00 for each bath bomb when I could buy four of them for the same price as just one.  While there are numerous bath bombs on the market including ones you could make yourself which are all similar to each other in size basically equivalating to that of a tennis ball they’re too costly for me but I must admit one of da Bombs clever names appropriately called “F” Bomb in reference to someone dropping the “F” Bomb only in this case in a bathtub is classic.

 

Several days ago I was walking through my favorite part of a department store, the clearance section and happened up on a box of four squared bath melts 1/2 off the original price bringing it down to  $4.99.  Each square is the same size as a bomb so instead of spending $5.00 for one I got four.  That’s a deal.  I’m not one of those fanatical couponers who hands the cashier an entire stack thus forcing the person or people behind her or him to wait impatiently along with possibly having the urge to take that same pair of scissors they used to clip their coupons and begin stabbing that aggravating couponer with them.  But that doesn’t mean I don’t like to save money.  All I know is that bath fizzers are a fun yet often times overpriced product so when that delightful clearance sticker is placed on the front of the item I can almost hear the bath fizzie bubbling up as it anxiously awaits my purchase.
