Interesting spread of digits here... it almost tempts me to pick the 2 here. Or rather, it would if this were my game and not Emily's.

For being in the stadium the night the Browns came back to Cleveland, and thus seeing Drew "run around the place" as part of the opening ceremonies, Sean gets some Pay the Rent action:
  • Sun-Maid raisins (20 oz)
  • Hefty Odor Block drawstring trash bags (45 ct)
  • Baker Mills Kodiak Cakes whole wheat oat & honey flapjack & waffle mix (24 oz)
  • Italia Garden lime juice (4.23 fl oz)
  • Luvsome Natural cat food (3.15 lb)
  • Swiss Miss hot cocoa mix with marshmallows (10 envelopes)

My Arrangement:
Mailbox: Baking mix
1st Floor: Raisins + Lime juice
2nd Floor: Cocoa mix + Trash bags
Attic: Cat food

This one's quite tricky... lots of arrangements look good. Nothing sticks out as being obviously the cheapest, which creates most of the problems.

(Rachel's open for Gwendolyn's Hail Mary... to continue the football metaphor)

(Cat food: $4.99)

...Wow. Totally misjudged the cat food!

Solution:
Mailbox: Cat food = $4.99
1st Floor: Baking mix ($6.49) + Lime juice (99¢) = $7.48
2nd Floor: Raisins ($4.29) + Cocoa mix ($3.49) = $7.78
Attic: Trash bags = $8.99

How I Did:
Mailbox: Baking mix = $6.49
1st Floor: Raisins ($4.29) + Lime juice (99¢) = $5.28
2nd Floor: Cocoa mix ($3.49) + Trash bags ($8.99) = $12.48
Attic: Cat food = $4.99

Yeah. Not a particularly good day for either of us, though mine was considerably worse. Can you tell I haven't priced cat food lately? ^^;;;

Do you have any idea at all how difficult it is to keep a positive, upbeat attiude in situations like this? It's nowhere near as easy as I make it look, I assure you...

That'll teach me to adopt a defeatist attitude! 8^D Wow, this game and Stack the Deck won in the same week... not bad at all! And that snaps a 9-game losing skid for That's Too Much! on top of everything.

Charon does a Row Bypass of the most unique kind: He actually vaults onto the stage, even clearing the row of golfball lights, straight from the pit! He even jumps back down to get to the Cranberry Podium. Stairs? Who needs stairs? XD

It's getting a little Racy in here:
  1. Foosball table (RR)
  2. Apple 15" MacBook Pro laptop computer (8GB RAM, 256GB Flash, laptop stand; RR)
  3. One-touch espresso machine (GOS)
  4. Crystal 3-person infrared sauna (GOS)

$550
$1200
$2059
$3695

I'm only torn as to whether $550 should go on the foosball table or the espresso machine. $1,200 seems a lock for the computer and $3,695 for the sauna; the other two could go either way from where I'm sitting.

Mind you, this comes from the person who believed a bag of cat food was at least twice the price it ended up being. Salt grains are available at all concession stands.

45 seconds... go!
