I was looking for a very accurate scale for my home. The ones you find at Target or Walmart just are not going to cut it. I searched out a Tanita scale at Bed, Bath & Beyond and got a great deal. It was marked down on clearance and I got an additional 25% off of that. What a bargain. While in the store, I found other needs like great towels for my bathroom and an awesome comforter for my bed.
