I save things. In some circles I might be known as a pack rat. I’d rather be referred to as a “keeper of important things.” In my container that has snaps, hooks & eyes and other closures is an old card that used to have snaps snapped to it.
If you will click on the above pic, you will see that the empty card on the left is from “Penneys” and the price printed right on the card is 13¢ ! I don’t know the year that those snaps were bought, but Pennys is now known as JC Penney and certainly does not sell snaps today. The card on the left has snaps made by Dritz and they sell for $2.29 today at JoAnn. Same amount of snaps – 12 of them – but very different pricing!
I did a search in Bing for “calculate percentage increase” and got a formula that gave me a price increase of 1661.54%. That’s One Thousand Six Hundred plus percent increase! That can’t be right! Anyone out there who knows their math? Let me know if that percentage is right.
Actually, I got the snaps from JoAnn on sale and only paid half-price $1.14. And using the same formula to calculate the percentage it was only a 776%+ increase. Such a deal …
