Comments: Well November certainly ushered itself in with a bang. 1.36 pounds of CRAP ranks right up there in a tie for the second-most CRAP in one week. All the usual suspects have continued to pull out the big guns: Bed Bath & Beyond, the local grocery stores, credit card companies, you name it. Unfortunately, using the magical spreadsheet, Skor has calculated that even if every week from now until the end of the year came in at 1.36 pounds, the total amount of CRAP wouldn't quite make it up to Skor's predicted 50 pounds. Maybe Sears and JC Penny will come through with 5 pound holiday catalogs each. Heh.
