I am a few days behind in writing posts for my #30DaysofContent Challenge. As I went about my day today, I had many ideas floating around in my head that I felt would be interesting blog posts and couldn’t wait to settle in and start writing. Those ideas will have to wait, because I need to tell you about my new favorite socks.
When I was out shopping for presents and baking supplies for Christmas cookies earlier today, buying socks for myself never entered my mind.
I love to shop and love getting coupons. If I have a great coupon, like the $10 one I had for Field & Stream, I MUST use it; especially when its $10 off a $10 purchase. No brainer. It’s like throwing $10 in the trash if I let it expire.
Since I was shopping near Field & Stream anyway, I decided to pop in. I first looked around to see if I could use it on a present for someone on my list, but was unsuccessful. I then thought that maybe I should pay it forward and just give it to another shopper, which I typically do if I have extra coupons.
As I was walking toward the front of the store, I almost walked into a display of socks in the middle of the aisle. It was a display of Yaktrax Cabin Socks, which I have never heard of before. It was a very festive, wintery and outdoorsy looking combination of colors and patterns that was very inviting.
I reached out and touched a pair of the Cabin Sock “Cozy” type. I fell in love with the feel of them. Then I read the description “Our Cozy Cabin Socks are designed to rejuvenate your tired feet. Throw another log on the fire. Sit back and Relax”. They were also described as “Aloe infused socks for extra comfort” and “Keep your feet warm and Toasty”. I was sold.
But it gets even better. The socks were a BOGO special. For those who aren’t shoppers, that means “Buy One, Get One”. Wow. So, I got two pair of socks for $12.99 minus my $10 coupon for a grand total of $2.99. I love a bargain.
Not only do I feel like I got a great deal, these are the absolute softest most comfortable socks I have ever owned. I am just sitting here with my feet in Cozy heaven. I can’t wait to finish up my post so I can walk around the house and enjoy them even more with each step I take.
Yaktrax – thank you for making these socks and Field & Stream – for selling them. You have just gained a very loyal customer.
