Since its getting close to the holidays I went into Big Lots to stock up on extension cords since last year I could not get any inexpensive ones close to Christmas as everyone was sold out. This year I decided to go early. I was able to get 3 and 6 feet extension cords for $3.00 and $5.00 respectively. While I was there I also found some reasonably cheap fall decorations for outside. This big lots also has great deals on food items, beauty items and cards. I also found baby items because I am collecting a lot of things for a baby shower and I use the teething rings instead of bows on packages when wrapping gifts. They had teething rings for $1.00 each. This week there was a special on cases of water and since we are still in hurricane season I was able to purchase a 12 pack for $2.50. Big Lots is a closeout store and you should purchase when you see something as it probably will not be there if you go back. I have gotten caught that way a couple of times. They are even beginning to stock Christmas items and have a great stock of lights and tree decorations. You have to look through a lot of stuff but y ou can get some wonderful bargains.
