I was puttering around the house today and decided to change some lightbulbs that had gone out. I only had one lightbulb, though, for more than 1 lamp. So I decided to buy some more.
I head to Kroger and notice that the "energy efficient" lightbulbs are marked down, and are plastered with stickers that say things like "good for 5 years!!" "will save $33!", etc. etc.
So I buy a few, along with some regular bulbs.
I love these crazy-looking things.
case in point: My desk lamp. My desk is a computer desk that is sort of placed in a niche in my bedroom. It's a dark corner. I bought a "daylight" bulb that promised "fresh, clean light."
Well, it delivered. This corner is now bathed in a lovely white light. It's so much easier to type when you're not squinting at the screen.
So I'm a believer. Who would have thought?
