So I started pricing out his version...
Now this seemed really easy at first, until you start finding out that in 2011 some of these radios have become highly collectible. So I went with a search of ebay and found one for $20.00
2nd Day: Green Poka-Dot Pajamas:
There were many...many different kinds of sleepware that came in Green Poka-dots. Mostly for women. $24.99
3rd Day Calander from my Insurance Agent:
This one I'll say free. I know, I know what about the cost of the insurance plan? Well what? Agents give these things away to anyone. I'll stand by FREE. It also saves me time from having to pick an insurance plan.
4th Day Simulated Alligator Wallet:
Another cheap gift, I found one on Amazon for $9.99.
5th Day Statue of a lady, with a clock where her stomach ought to be:
Found one! $54
6th Day aluminum nutcracker:
Found this really neat Squirrel Nutcracker on Amazon for only $28.99.
7th Day pink satin pillow with fringe all around it:
Looking around, I was able to find one for $25.00.
8th Day Plastic Birdbath:
So far the lamest gift of all, coming in at $20.00.
9th Day Pair of Teakwood Shower Clogs:
Found a used pair on ebay for $8.99.
10th Day Chromium manicure scissors and lighter:
Scissors run about $10.00 or even cheaper, a good lighter can go for about $20.00. Again there is a collector market involved so I am sure there are even more expensive ones out there.
11th Day Automatic Vegetable Slicer:
In the song this item works on tv, but not when you get it home. I found one of the "As Seen on TV' brand ones for $42.00.
It comes out to about $236.96 dollars for the first 11 days, if you bought all these items for each 11 days or the True Cost of Christmas price would be $2,606.56 if you did this, and the best part is on the 12th day of Christmas you return them all!
