bargain of the day; less is more
For the first time I spent some time in Bunnings Warehouse (a hardware store) and picked up a good bargain.
Previously, I bought Jackson Traveller Powerboard (Dual Outlet) for about $20-something from Big-W. It came with a two-outlet powerboard and a bag. I saw the same item at Bunnings for $14.10.
Then, keep looking around, I saw the Jackson Passport Adaptor Pack (as pictured above) for just $9.90 which is essentially a two-outlet powerboard, a traveller page and a set of overseas adapters for even less. I walked back and check the price again, I did not read it wrong. So I bought one pack home. You can never have enough powerboards.
Later, I had another window shopping in Officeworks. The Jackson Traveller Powerboard (Dual Outlet) costs about $16, and the Jackson three travel adaptors cost about $17. Getting those two packs (total of $35) would be essentially the same as the single Passport Adaptor Pack ($9.90) I bought in Bunnings.
The morale of the story? Buying less may cost you more.
