    I hope it is okay to post this. Awhile back, I was in a Dollar Tree store and they had mesh back supports. I picked up several and they seem to help my back when I'm sitting in my office chair doing my sewing. Received an email from them this morning that they have them in stock. So if anyone wants to try one, the price is right! Joyce

    I bought one many years ago - paid $17 for it. :shock:

    It is well worth the $17 because they are really wonderful. Thanks for sharing! :thumbup:

    I bought two of them from the Dollar store. One for my computer chair and the other for my sewing chair. Best money I ever spent for ergonomics. I saw someone trying to sell these at a quilt show for 10.00. I wanted to walk up to potential customers and whisper in their ears "dollar store", but decided everyone has the right to free enterprise, even if it is a rip-off.

    I got mine in AZ at a flea market when we were there in the winter. Paid $3.00 for it then. It really helps the old back.

    I got mine at our Walgreen's store...they had them on sale for 2/$10.00...but when I went through the register they came up as $3.00 each...I have one in my car and the other on my sewing chair and love them...the one in the car is great for summer....keeps my back off the seat, and the air condition flows behind my back...so no sweating!

The next time I went to Dollar Tree, I bought 6 more so when the ones I am using fall apart, I have a stash. LOL LOL LOL Have a blessed day.

    My store only had one and I bought it for my car. Love it, my back no longer gets tired or tight when driving. I saw one at Goodwill the other day and should have bought it, but did not.

    Well worth the $1.

    I bought seven of them... use them in the kitchen, at my computer, at my sewing chair, gave to friends. They love them. My Dollar Tree Store told me they keep getting them and run out of them right away. The manager said she tries to keep them in stock. They are great.

    I also have one and I love it. It has improved my posture so much when I sew. I now want one for the car.

    I never thought to use these for sewing. How funny, I have 2 for when I go skiing and they save me a lot of back pain from a previous injury. I'm taking one of them RIGHT NOW and putting by my sewing machine....THANKS for the reminder :).

    They make great pillows for camping too! Our Boy Scouts use them and love 'em.

    I bought five of them. I have them on my computer,and sewing chairs and gave one to my DH. The other two went to my DD and it's really helped her back.

    ROFL Joanieu and I have one from the DOllar Tree and they are great for 1.00. I have seen them much higher too. This just shows the prices can be less than others sell them for. It's sad too. I want to buy 9 more before my retreat.
    Thanks for sharing this for the QB
