During lunchbreak I stopped in KMart. They were selling Glade products 2 for $5. I picked up two oil scented plug-in refills. One pumpkin pie and one apples & cinnamon. They also have the scented jar candles, the scented gel refills (3pk), glass scent home frangrancers, and scented oil candles (3pk). This weekend when I do my regular cleaning I'm plugging them in. I think I'll put the pumpkin pie in the kitchen and the apples & cinnamon in the livingroom. I may have to go back and get a few more as they had lots.
