My co-worker yesterday was sweet enough to purchase solar eclipse glasses for the department since we would be at work when it happened. She purchased 5 for $20. While I thought this to be a good deal, my cheap-ass always thinks you can find a better one.
I googled “free solar eclipse glasses” and 5 minutes later I was on this site:
A few hours later, I was at a nearby library, attempting to scam the front desk clerk out of 15-20 pairs. When she didn’t buy my story of being a sanctuary home, housing Polish immigrant children, I came clean and requested 4 pairs.
So unbeknownst to us, there are thousands and thousands of pairs of glasses available for free! Just go to to a library in the above link!! If your too lazy, you can also get them at Kroger for $1.99. I’m seriously thinking about getting a bunch and selling them for $5/pair.
My oldest is going to be home alone during the eclipse and my youngest will be at his first day of school. I don’t need my sons to go blind so I put the fear of God in them by saying DON’T LOOK AT THE SUN, NO MATTER HOW TEMPTED YOU ARE! YOU’LL GO BLIND! I feel a little better knowing they have solar eclipse safety glasses.
So there! Your welcome! Feel free to send the difference of what you would have spent, to me ($20). I’ll invest it wisely in Starbucks and Black Box Cabernet.
