Big Lots $10 Challenge Part 3

Those who tuned in on Wednesday know that we were at $6.21 on our $10 challenge. Let's finish it up today with the final two entries.

At $2.75 it's this bleach toilet bowl cleaner cake, a scraping from it seen here at 200x... and boy did the toilet need it!

Finally, at $0.99 is this soy-based imitation bacon bit which I will use to put on soups and salads for the next few months, if I can stomach it after seeing this picture.

And that's it for the Big Lots $10 challenge. The final total was $9.95 and, sadly, I could find nothing for 5 cents that day. Coming soon: The 99 Cent Store $10 challenge!

This evergreen tree grows in our backyard. Although it can't be seen by the naked eye, it appears that it is being attacked by some sort of fungus.

Finally, today's mystery object at 200x. What could it be? Come back tomorrow for the answer.

I'm going to guess it's some kind of chocolate.

Used Brillo/SOS pad?

Vanessa, this dude who is old enough to be your grandfather also thinks it is fascinating stuff. Your mind is a living organism and like any animate object will respond to what it is fed. You, wisely, are seeking to expand the range of what you eat.
