This week on my blog I'm writing about discovery.

One of LIFE'S many simple pleasures is finding out that something you were going to buy, you actually are getting two for the price of one.

BOGO.... Buy One, Get One
..it is regarded as one of the most effective forms of special offers for goods,

In my old neck of the woods this was called Double Bubble.  Two for one.  In other places it's called Happy Hour!
We were in Iowa City, Iowa recently visiting our oldest who is a Junior Hawkeye and trusted Trip Advisor to direct us to a good eats place.  Not often seen anymore with businesses trying to make a buck, but  EVERY day from 3-6 it's two for one drinks, on ALL drinks!!
Week #45 - LIFE'S Simple Pleasures - discovery
Yesterday's blog post was about finding money in your winter coat pocket, underneath the couch cushions or on the sidewalk.  It's like winning a small lottery!
You're richer than you were a few minutes ago!
It's just one of those simple pleasures, going somewhere that you've never been before, and putting your money in the vending machine and two sodas drop down instead of one.  The best thing is to share the 'free' one with a friend!
Not every BOGO is a deal, especially if you don't need two of them.  But discovering one at the end of a good day, unexpectedly, is one of LIFE'S simple pleasures.
