So I got 25’ of 14-2 Romex for $20.21 at Wally World. The App said $20.21 but the shelf said $27.98 and they had to mark it to that price at checkout. Only wish they had 50’ of that stuff.

Wooo hooo I feel blessed.

Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp, 
Or what's a heaven for?

The electricians I know around here tend to keep their wire spools in the cabs of their trucks instead of the beds if they have open pick-ups instead of closed trucks.  Apparently a lot of wire gets stolen to salvage the copper.
