Curse you, HGTV, and your bad-example-setting!

I’d like to share with you all my list of Shit to Measure Before You Buy It:

  • Drapery
  • Blinds
  • Area rugs
  • Shower curtains
  • Bike tires
  • Inflatable ANYTHING (pools, pool toys, air mattresses, whatevs)
  • Memory foam mattress pads

All of the above are things I have to repackage with quite some frequency, and it’s a huge bitch to do so.  I beseech you, on behalf of retail redshirts everywhere:

Measure twice, buy once.
