eBay to the Rescue!

It was wonderful having Friday off!! I relaxed during the day and did some cleaning and watching TV then Joe and I went to an early show to see Iron Man 3 and it was excellent even better then the previous ones. This movie feels like a comedy with a superhero plot, but luckily, it functions admirably as a comedy. There are plenty of laughs and Robert Downey Jr  is so thoroughly Tony Stark at this point. I can't imagine anyone else that could of played this role but him. Another one of my favorite actors and a UCB Theater alum Don Cheadle was also in the movie. After the movie we met up with the kids and grand kids at Don Cuco's Mexican Restaurant for dinner. It was a perfect day and evening. Saturday and Sunday was just work and it finally cooled down. I was not ready for the temps in 90's like we had last week. It has dropped 20 degrees already.

A few years ago CVS stopped carrying L'Oréal  Lasting Curls Gel and L'Oréal Paris Studio Glass Shine Spray I was besides myself because I loved those products I went to several other stores and they did not carry them either. So I went on eBay and found both products I was able to buy a case of each which I am still using and every once in awhile I check online to make sure that they are still available for when I run out. The other day I noticed I was running low on my lip balm that I use called "Lip Smackers" they come in a 8 pack and they either come in soda flavors or candy flavors I have been getting them from CVS for years but no more, they no longer carry them I went to several stores and they did not have them. eBay to the rescue I was able to buy 3, 8 packs for less than they use to charge me at CVS. They should last me for at least a year. I ordered them on eBay Thursday and they were in the mail on Saturday.

Hi Dru, I don't know why I never thought of Ebay for personal care products. I use to love Fantastic Sam's hair products because they smelled so good and then they got rid of them. My cousin has been selling things on Ebay and I think I want to do that too to downsize.
Have a great week. Hugs

Morning Dru;

I love the Iron Man series and can't wait to see #3. I agree with you, I can only see RB Jr. playing Tony Stark and no one else.

I always check out Ebay when it comes to buying anything I can't find anywhere else. I'm glad you got your products. Have a great day ahead. Hugs

I was looking on ebay for more parts to my Ralph Lauren bedding last week but couldn't find anything but dust ruffles which I don't need. It's annoying when you love a product and can't find it anymore. That happens at Costco all the time. Looking forward to seeing Ironman 3. Wondering if Ryan will want to see it. with the DVDs, he just likes to FF to the action scenes so not sure he'd sit thru the whole movie.

Nice that ebay has so much great stuff isn't it?
Products change so quick nowadays you fall in love and they are gone overnight.
Have a great day Dru!

Hi Dru,
Glad you found your lip smackers (I haven't used that word(s) in a while!). Amazon has a lot of different stuff, too. Are you being affected by all that smoke that Darylynn is? I've been worried about you two. Wishing you a lovely week ahead. ((hugs))
