    I have to petsit for two weeks and my roommates aren't home or awake on a constant schedule, so I need to get a good, reliable, affordable timer for my dragon's lights! I've been looking online and everything is either 25 bucks or more or they're pieces of crap (according to many reviews). I need something I can get local by tomorrow night!

    I use christmas tree timers. They work fantastic and were around $10 each. I'm not certain where you could pick one up this time of year though.

    Do you know what brand they are? There are cheap ones at Home Depot, but some people have trouble getting them to work or they die quickly.

    Be sure to check if you need 3 prong.
    The cheap ones are usually not.
