Not the usual place to buy supplies

Since I retired I am now forced to go with my wife on the weekly grocery shopping at the local Wally World. While bored and waiting for her in the food department I wondered over to the hardware section. This is some place I hardly ever go to because all I expect to find is the Chinese import stuff. At the end of the end of the isle I browsed through there clearance items and to my wife’s dismay I found a whole stack of 5 inch hook and loop sanding disc in packages of 15 on clearance. The price was $1.00 a package well of course I couldn’t turn that down. I bought all that they had. Needless to say I don’t shy away from discount store hardware departments any more. Although I won’t need sanding disc for a while I bought 22 packages. I still hate grocery shopping though.

Nice score on the sanding discs. Like you I normally do not like shopping with my wife but I will have to look into this the next time I am in there.
