Sometimes being hyper frugal is a big fat bore.
It's depressing and you feel like the odd man out.
You feel like a pauper when other friends are out eating in restaurants, and you opt to stay home because you can eat for a week for the price of one meal out.
Other times -
you walk around like a rooster, gloating over your cleverness, and doing native Indian war cries at the cash registers.
I've been running a gamut of both emotions lately - but wait until you see this last score....
I'ze just gotta gloat.
I've never liked shopping for clothes, eva.
I'm bootylicious with a tiny waist, and it makes clothes shopping difficult.
Plus, most times I just looked like a watermelon with a dress on - so, there ya go.
Behold what the Pink Chicken brought home for about $4.00 this week!
You probably can't see in the picture, but there is a pair of Tommy Hilfiger jeans (my fav!).
Behind these jeans is a pair of bright orange Columbia hiking shorts.
I shan't be shot in the woods by a hunter.
It just looks like a wrinkled up mess doesn't it?
It was 'Bag Sale' day at the resale shop.
I even bought a bag of jeans - just to make rugs out of!
Please refer to the clever remark up top.
Does shopping resale stores for clothing freak you out?
It did me at first.
Nothing a good laundering can't fix.
You just have to be picky, and careful, and not think into things too much - like, did someone die in these jeans?
Do not go there, or you'll be paying full price in a heartbeat.
