Over the weekend I was trying to shop online for floor mats for my Honda CRV. Naturally I went into Honda’s official retail store first. Now seeing that a brand new floor mat would set me back a few hundred dollars, next stop… ebay and amazon.
I thought there would be substantial savings through them but as it turned out their just a tad under the regular retail price. A little disappointed I thought of just placing stretched out plastic bags for the meantime. It’s winter, and the car’s floor is wetter and soon enough, I know it would smell and breed molds and mildew.
My wife saw the plastic bags and blurted out a laugh. “You should have asked me!”, she said. So off we drove to the nearest Dollar Tree store to get cloth mats. Silly me, I never imagined that $5 would buy what I need. There are great mat designs to choose from even. It’s ultra-cheap and it’s washing machine friendly too. How’s that for convenience.
Lesson of the day… at least for me!
