I hate to shop! To me, shopping means I want something specific so I visit different stores comparing prices, varieties, sizes, colors, and other specifications. I am a browser. I love to browse for new and useful tools and gadgets. I went yesterday with my wife to Bed, Bath, and Beyond. She was shopping. I was browsing. I found something I have always wondered (why don't they have) about. I hate to buy and drink soft drinks from a pop top can. I typically drink half the can and pour the remainder into the sink. At BBB yesterday, I found a package of 1/2 plastic bottles. They are simply the top half of a plastic water bottle. They are designed to snap down over a soft drink can and convert it into a bottle of soda. You can replace the cap and place the can/bottle in the refrigerator for the next time you want a sip of soda that still has some carbonation. When the can is empty, you simply snap the bottle top off the can, place the can in the recycle bin, rinse the bottle top; and you are ready for the next can.
I think my second favorite browsing destination would be those "Dollar" stores. Every little town has one. It may be "Family Dollar" or "Dollar General" but when combined with a Dairy Queen (a Sonic drive in works in a pinch), all requirements have been met to designate your community as a town or village.
My favorite time to browse the dollar stores is in the spring when they put their spring gardening displays out. I always find a lot of gardening gadgets, tools, supplies, and seed. They always have some pre-packaged cardboard displays of seed. They simply pull the front off the display and set it on the rack or counter. The displays usually have the strangest varieties of flower and vegetable seeds. The best part is the fact they only cost five packets for one dollar. You can mix and match or buy five packs of some unusual seed for one dollar. I have grown a lot of garden plants from those inexpensive little generic seed packs over the years and they do great. Even if they don't do well, I was only out a buck for the effort.
