The Battery Weekend

September 22, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

Somehow, batteries played a large part in our lives this past weekend. Several of Esmé’s toys needed replacement batteries, Emily needed batteries for her flash, Emily forgot the battery charger for her camera in Colorado and had to purchase another one at an exorbiant price. [And the other week, Emily’s car needed new batteries – a month before we return it to the dealer – to the tune of $200]. I have this theory that toy makers and battery makers conspire to boost each others profits. I am at the point where I am buying batteries in bulk. I don’t think I’ve ever needed a C-battery until Esmé came along. I would purchase rechargeable batteries, but I don’t have much luck with those, as those always seem to die well before I think it should – especially for the price I have to pay. Anyway, we are down to 2 AAA batteries and two 9-volt batteries in the house. Amazon is supposed to deliver a large batch of C-batteries on Wednesday, and I purchased a 50-pack of AA and AAA batteries from Batteries.com [Use coupon code GGL15 for 15% off your order].
