$10,000 Can Buy Something Big, Or a Whole Lot of Little Stuff
KOOL-FM is giving you a chance to win $10,000 in KOOL Cash. This begs the question, "What would you do if you won $10,000?". For most people, their first thought is the big ticket item: Down payment on a house, pay off your car, buy a motorcycle...the list goes on. But what if you were to buy a whole lot of something that you otherwise would be spending money on the rest of your life, and knock it out in one purchase? An extra 10 grand could give you, as Forrest Gump would say, "One less thing to worry about.". Here are a few "small ticket" items you could get with your KOOL Cash winnings, and an idea of just how much of the little stuff you can buy.
A 6-roll pack of Charmin costs $5.77. With 10 grand, you could buy 1,733 packages, 10,398 rolls of teepee. That would make for either a lifetime of clean butts, or one heck of a lot of mischievous teenage slumber parties.
An 8.2 oz. tube of toothpaste retails for around $2.49 on average. Provided you actually use toothpaste and you're not a professional hockey player, you'll need this stuff for the rest of your days. With $10,000, you can score yourself 4,016 tubes, enough to keep your entire extended family out of the dentist's dog house.
I hate it when I run out of deodorant, but nowhere near as much as other people hate it when I run out of deodorant. The cost of deodorant varies, based on how fancy you want your pits to smell. But the consensus is that the average cost is about $3.49 for a standard stick. With $10,000, you'll never have to worry about offending again. In fact, you can buy 2,865 sticks of deodorant. That's enough to sweeten the pits of 10 1/2 people for an entire lifetime.
A 3-pack of "tighty whitey's" costs around $12.75, if you want a quality, name brand pair of underpants. 784 packages of cotton briefs could be purchased with $10,000. That's 2,352 pair. If you were to actually change your underwear every day for nearly 6 1/2 years. Or , if you want to do what my 13 year old does and change weekly, you can go over 45 years without washing a single pair of underwear.
I'm always looking for pens, and after I buy a new package of disposable pens, they all disappear within a week. The only logical remedy for this problem is to buy so many pens that you're surrounded by them at every turn. If you walk into the store with $10,000, you can walk out hauling 9,900 12-packs of Bic pens. That's 118,811 pens that may very well have you set for life...with pens, that is.
