The next strip in sequence has Elly and Annie discuss buying a new electric can opener.

Panel 1: We start out with Elly, who's holding a screwdriver as she examines the remains of her electric can opener, telling Annie that she tried her best but she thinks it's dead.

Panel 2: The lover of false economies within her makes her describe the prospect of having to buy a new can opener as if she were being made to do so at gunpoint.

Panel 3: Since Annie isn't as obsessed with going broke saving money as Elly is, she tells her "Come on! Sometimes, a new appliance can be an incentive."

Panel 4: As she and Elly dock with their children, Annie baffles the Hell out of Elly and the rest of us by declaring that she once spent a week cleaning the kitchen in honor of a new toaster. One would hope that she meant that she more diligent than usual but one never knows in this strip.

Summary: Stay tuned as Elly decides to make a sacrifice no one demands of her while taking her rich husband to task for not pretending to be treading water financially.
