Big Bark Nugget Sale!

OK, so the OSH Hardware radio commercials the past couple of days regarding the big bark nugget sale this Saturday crack me up! Why? Not really sure.....I just found it amusing to hear the phrase "bark nugget sale". The commercial boasts of all sizes of bark nuggets, mini up to the big ones. I don't know about you all, but I commonly refer to them as "woodchips", while in reality, they are nuggets of bark. When I heard the announcer man referring to the event as a "bark nugget sale" while I was stuck in traffic, daydreaming, it just made me laugh aloud. I heard it again this morning & I still laughed aloud. Yes, I am whacky......

Anyhow.....for those of you that enjoy home improvement projects or landscaping as much as we do, then you may want to take note here. Get over to OSH, this Saturday only, because the bark nuggets are 2 bags for the price of 1. It's a great deal!! They retail for around $4 a bag & you know you need several to properly populate your garden beds. They help retain soil moisture & discourage weeds. They have a unique aroma, in case you did not notice.....and that scent supposedly helps to deter other garden varmints that may wanna rain on your parade (literally). I had to use bark nuggets a lot at my last house because the neighborhood stray cats seemed to think our land was their giant litter-box. When you have a fresh batch of bark nuggets, it's apparently far less appealing to the local felines. How great is that???

So, get on over to OSH and stock up on your bark nuggets. It's a one-day event, this Saturday only.

Happy Shopping!

Sue, I love your posts. They are informative and witty at the same time. I don't where an Osh is, but I could use some bark on the side of our house, so I may just have to do a little research. Thanks for the info!
