I am basically a cheap skate. Sherry said, “I am going to JC Pennys to see if they have any sandals on sale I like.” I asked, “Do you want me to go?” YES was the answer. so off we go. Let’s stop by Kohls first, she suggests.
Walking in I look at men’s jeans, sticker price $98. for a pair of Levi’s? Y’all gone crazy? Roses sells Wranglers for $12 and Rustlers for $10, they are denim, they are blue, they are much better price. do people pay that? Sherry found sandals Orig $65 marked down to about $12. (checked out and the register receipt says you saved $85, do people believe that too?)
I really do not know how to buy clothes for myself at a retail shop. My suits are over 30 yrs old. they still look good and aren’t ‘out of fashion’. My dress shoes were bought for Sherry’s 25 HS reunion. We attended her 55th reunion was last year, So, I got to wear the exact clothes again, am I frugal or what? (I know some of you say cheap!). (I betcha some of those rich folk wish they could get into the same clothes they wore 35 yrs ago!)
The shirts I love, came from yard sales, or hand me downs by widows of friends.. It is seldom you see any men’s clothes at a yard sale. We usually wear ours until they are rag quality.
In the last two months I have had hand me downs from the most unlikely places, my grandson and my son. both gave me a pair of Tennis shoes. Well grandpa ain’t gonna complain.
We met Alligator Ed, in Florida. He buys used jeans, shoots them with a shotgun, sells them for $150. The shell costs $.50, pretty good profit.
I noticed girls jeans that are torn up, cost up to $90, now I may be dense, but if you pay that much for torn jeans you are much more dense than I, Gungadin.
Thanks for coming this way.
A Sunday School teacher began her lesson with a question, "Boys and girls, what do we know about God?"
A hand shot up in the air. "He is an artist!" said the kindergarten boy.
"Really? How do you know?" the teacher asked.
"You know - Our Father, who does art in Heaven... "
