Tuesday Tidbits

June 9th, 2009

We were standing in line at the dollar store today when I noticed they sell pregnancy tests. At the dollar store. For a dollar! Wait, how much was that again? As Joe kept saying over and over after picking up every damn item in the damn store just to annoy me – “a dollar!” I don’t know, but I wouldn’t trust a pregnancy test from the dollar store. I bet it’s like an eight ball. You just hold it up and ask, “Am I pregnant?” The answer? “All signs point to yes”. Because if you’re buying a pregnancy test from the dollar store, chances are you didn’t purchase birth control.

Holy crap, I just read about the new iPhone 3GS that comes out later this month. I guess being forced to wait for my T-Mobile contract to expire has been a blessing in disguise. The 16GB 3GS is going to cost as much as what I would have paid for the 8GB 3G. Sure, I could still get the 8GB 3G since they are lowering the price, but where is the fun in that? Just a little under a month and the new iPhone will be mine.

    A long time ago someone showed me a website that ranked the accuracy of different pregnancy tests and a lot of the dollar store brands did just as well as the $15+ plus tests you could get anywhere else. I’ve never bought a dollar store brand, but if you’re testing a lot I could understand wanting/needing to save money…. those things are expensive.

    Scott has the original iPhone and was really glad he didn’t upgrade when the previous “new” one came out because he was able to order the new one and not have to pay a ton for it.

    I’m getting the new iPhone when it comes out too! Woohoo!

    $1 pregnancy tests? Hmmm. I had no idea how much those tests usually cost until I bought some yesterday for the first time ever ($17.95 for a 2-pack, on sale). But yea, it does seem risky to trust a $1 brand. But then again, like Jenniy said, if you are testing often it might be worth it. Maybe for early testing before your period is actually late.
