What You Get For The Money
July 2, 2008
With my recent 30 pound weight loss, I’ve got, in a sense, a new body, which is a very good thing. (Although J is a bit discouraged by my shrinking boobies).
I am currently at the point that I need new clothes, pants espically. Size 22 is no longer an option if I wish to keep my bottoms on, which I do. I am not in a position financially, where I can just go out and purchase a new wardrobe, and even if I had the money, I don’t know that I would want to buy clothes that (hopefully) won’t fit in a couple of months.
I’ve already been down that road. The new pants that I spent $17 on less than 2 months ago are already in a pile to be given away due to the fact that they’re too big. Quite a waste of money, espically for me. Therefore, yesterday I hit up the local Goodwill. I know, used clothing yuck……cooties………blah blah blah. Before you judge, check out what I got:
3 pairs of dress pants, and 2 nice shrits. The pants are all in nearly new condition, complete with dry clean tags courtsey of the previous owner. The white shirt is a ribbed sweater, which still had tags on it. The picture doesn’t do it justice. The orange shirt was barely used. There were tons more dress pants in my current size, but I obstained from going too crazy.
The grand total for my loot? Under $15, plus laundry detergent to wash out the cooties. At that price, I can afford to get a whole new wardrobe for every size!
