    I live in Greenville,Indiana. Clarksville is about 15 miles from my house. Harbor Freight and Basspro are about 2 miles apart from each other.

    I clip the coupons for Harbor Freight and use my Rewards Points at Basspro. I still spend way too much money in those places for stuff I want but don't really need. Read that as "Tyme wants some new toys."

    About every month or so I go to Clarksville to refill my testosterone levels.

    There oughta be a law about those two "man places" being so close to each other.!!

    There is also a Bed,Bath,and Beyond close by. Today was first visit ever to that store.(Mrs. Tyme was with me and made me go.) I now know why they included "Beyond". Their prices are Beyond freaking believable!!

    The Dick's store is almost next door to the Basspro store. Dick's basicly gave up on fishing gear and now concentrates on "sporting" goods. A Home Depot is between Harbor Freight and Basspro, and past Basspro there is a Lowes. Across from Lowes is a Wal-Mart super store. It's a guantlet to drive around that town!! And a conspiracy on my wallet!!:eek:oooh:

    Now I myself am hooked on Linen's and Things. Their prices are reasonable on most things, and they have the neatest kitchen stuff and other stuff too that I've ever seen, I love that place.

    hell in bloomington il lowes home depot and memards are within a mile of each other. well lowes is a mile from. the other 2 are across the street with only one darn stoplight in between.

    handy though for price shopping. i had a 250$ limit when i went to get my gas pressure washer. i hit all three. got the biggest bang for my buck at lowes. $259.00 2.2 gal per min 2200psi troy built briggs with 3 attachments.

    menards was $259 with only the turbo attachment and 1.9 gpm 2100 psi briggs.

    home depot. nothing even close to my price range. cheapest was $299. spent 5 min there. never been back either.

    I'm lucky Bass Pro is 21 miles away and Cabella's is 38 miles away, but right off of 94.Just a drive down the road. lol

    Now Lowe's is 5 miles away with Menard's right next door. The Super WalMart, I can not get into. I like Meijer's, I know where everything is at in there. lol

    Tractor Supply gets lot's of my money. lol from feed to bib overalls. Just 2 days ago, I found they have their Heavy Denim over shirts for 19 bucks again. Got 1 last year in the fall, 2 this year. Heck I bought 12 bags of softener salt there yesterday. lol lol

    This year that darn place sold me a new solar fence charger, a new Husquavarna chain saw and at least 4 ton of feed. Not counting all the little junk.

    Plus about 30 fishing lures this spring. They had carts lined up, 1 and 2 bucks apiece. lol

    BassPro #1 = 8 Miles away
    Cabelas = 17 miles away
    BassPro#2 = 25 miles away
    Tractor Supply = Right by BassPro #1
    Lowes = Everywhere

    I used to be pretty good about saving money, now I pretty much write off any notion I ever had about being able to retire some day. :sad2:

    Since I retired I'm scared to leave the house some days. LOL Seems like I always come home $100 to $200 dollars short. Got a lot of neat toys though!!
