When I was California I was introduced to the wonders of Big Lots. Another discount store I am happy to say I found in the New York area also. Big Lots has all sorts of neat items. One thing I purchased was Talking Toast. Apparently how it works is you press down the plastic words (I brought the one that said "I Love You") on a piece of bread and when it toasts the words appear. Well I guess I must have not pressed down hard enough or had a too thin piece of bread because it didn't work. The idea was neat though. And it only cost me a dollar.

There's a chain around here called Big Lots. I bet that they are alike.

Odd Lots? I've heard of Big Lots but not Odd Lots!

That is a cute idea, I would like it just because I love toast. It's my favorite breakfast :) What a cute pic!

Hmmmm I believe I combined two store names. Odd Job and Big Lots. Oy. Yep it was definetly Big Lots. Woopsie. Ack mus fix another thing.

The price was indeed worth the not working but I'll try on a thicker piece Jess.

Toast is indeed good Rae Baby!

We have "Big Lots" here. I really don't go there because I end up buying lots of things that I don't need.
But...... I did hear that they are selling cute little Valentine's gifts for $.59! I think I need to have a look.

Yes Yvett I too have the same condition. I am trying to be good though. I have improved in 2005 and hope to continue in 2006.
