Before the advent of LED bulbs, everyone was a “bulb snatcher” now and then. Traditional incandescent bulbs were designed to last only so many hours; I’ve had bulbs last as little as two weeks. Research “Phoebus Cartel” for more.

I bought 1/2 case of 100W bulbs on close-out when everyone was switching to CFLs. Used about half of them before decent LEDs started coming out. (CFLs were utter crap; LEDs are great.) Don't know what I'll do with those I have left. Local thrift store didn't want them. Maybe I'll just will them to my grandchildren and let them sort it out.
