This is gonna be one of those weeks that tests my patience, isn't it...

One Wrong Price:
  1. LifeSpan TR3000 treadmill (GOS)
  2. KitchenAid (?) bottom-freezer refrigerator (RR)
  3. Lenovo 29" all-in-one desktop computer (6GB RAM, 3.2GHz processor; RR))

Random things that tickle my funny bone: One of the fridge's features, at least according to George's copy, is an "alarm system." What's that for, militant dieters?

I couldn't make up my mind between the treadmill or the computer. Luckily she guessed right.

Leia is a Repeat Offender from fifteen years ago, so around Season 29-ish. However, in her previous appearance she became what Joel is now in danger of becoming, a First Four Leftover, so she's already ahead of the game even before she sees It's In the Bag rear its ugly head from behind the GPT:
  • Beech-Nut baby food (4.2 oz)
  • Baker's angel flake sweetened coconut (14 oz)
  • Star sun-dried tomatoes (8 oz)
  • LemiShine dishwasher detergent (18 oz)
  • Maxwell House coffee (30.6 oz)
  • Kraft Stove Top stuffing

$1.19
$12.99
$2.99
$6.99
$4.99

After the obvious baby food and coffee, I'd go stuffing → detergent → coconut.

Apparently I'm not the only one who feels this way, because that's exactly how Leia arranges 'em:

Baby food

Stuffing mix

Coconut

  1. "It's in the Bag" isn't ugly, it's great! But, that doesn't matter right now, what does is that "Check Game" is on a three game winning streak, has already matched the number of wins it received all last season, and has a record this year of 3-1. It looks like a comeback year for this game. In fact, I'd say it's out of its slump now, and isn't as "confusing" at it was before.
