Last summer, I found a deal online where you could buy a box of 25 sunglasses online for about $30. They were a random collection of unsold sunglasses from stores like KMart and CVS Pharmacy. You didn't know what you were going to get, but being a person who does not really care so much about style and is constantly losing her sunglasses, it was a great deal.
We loved having them. Jon and I would wear a pair until a kid snapped them for us or they were unwittingly left behind somewhere and then pull out a new pair. This was a big financial improvement from our early married days when Jon used to think it was okay to spend $50 for one pair of sunglasses, only to then break them at a job site a week later.
But, thanks to our children dipping into the glasses pot as well, we eventually ran out of our supply and I have been checking the same site ever since for a similar deal. Months and months went by and, nothing. Summer was fast approaching and we desperately needed some cheap eyewear, so I decided to branch out a little and see what Ebay had to offer. And it paid off, big time.
I purchased a box of 100 sunglasses for $40. That is .40 cents a pair people. The box came and we spent a fun afternoon sorting the pairs into Womens, Mens and Kids styles and none of us will run out any time soon. There are even a few pairs that fit Asher and almost all of them are Ringo-style circular frames that are worth the $40 all on their own when I can get him to wear them.
And where but in a box of 100 sunglasses would you find awesome shades like these ones? Worth. Every. Penny.
