What is Five and Dime Lists?

So why did I name this blog  The Five and Dime Lists and why  a blog about lists?

Freema Agyeman (the English actress,known for playing Martha Jones in the BBC science fiction series Doctor Who)  said something that many of us ( I sure do) can relate to
"I constantly make lists and itineraries and then can't stick to any of them."

...and yet we all have a fascination with lists, from  talking about the lists of Stargate characters, Dr. TV actors  to such lists as  foods, islands, cat breeds, dragons and more
Lists have a profound effect on all of us and there are many websites dedicated to helping members create lists to share with others for the purpose of business and pleasure.

Well I can' t that I will ever be like those websites and I wish them all very well, this little corner of the universe is my collections of lists of anything and everything I find interesting or even more important, you will find interesting.

so why did I name this blog  The Five and Dimes Lists?



The answer is very simple and goes back to 1878 when FW Woolworth first opened his " 5 and 10" store in Utica , he offerered a wide variety of products for a very reasonable amount.  While the first store he opened did not bring him success, he eventually build on this concept the now famous Woolworth stores where the concept was to reduce store overheads by simplifying the duties of sales clerks and thus more people would come in.
The Five and Dimes Lists  is based on the same concept where the overhead is very low ( just me lol) and the lists I am sharing will offer a wide variety of different interests with you the reader coming in and staying for a while.
The other reason for the name is because I liked it..it has a ring to it don't you think?
I hope you will stay a while and if you  have an idea for a list that you would like to see on the blog, feel free to let me know and lets see what can be done.

Have fun
