I went out shopping today. Well, actually I went to help a friend out and drove to Grand Prairie, the land of a thousand stores and a veritable plethora of ways to spend your money. I personally detest shopping. I know, I know, I'm female and that goes against everything the society tried so hard to inculcate into me yet there it is. I would rather play golf than shop. (and the only thing I hate more than shopping is golf - the ultimate snore sport) There is one quid pro quo to the shopping thing: if you get me in an art store or a really good bookstore, I will hand my wallet off to you, so that I do not have to remortgage my house afterward.
However, my friend wanted to go to a clothing store. Ugh! Be positive, right? So, I wondered to myself, I wonder what it would be like to scoop up the best, most excellent bargains in this store and come away with a beautiful outfit (or 2) in the process? So, marked down from $35 to $7 a beautiful skirt and from $25 to $8 an awesome summer shirt, which just happen to go fabulously together AND skinny jeans at $17 (okay, not really a bargain but I liked them) and a jacket - gorgeous and unique - from $35 to $8. I am feeling much better about shopping now! Of course I know the store STILL made money off me but I didn't lose as much on the deal. I am smiling!
Happy hunting (or gathering) to y'all this weekend!
