Do you spend a lot of money on clothes?
I don't. For me, the cheaper the better. And I'm not ashamed of it.
That's right. You heard me. I BUY CHEAP CLOTHES. Woo!
There's a few people I know who would faint after reading that sentence. Sorry, guys. But I don't get it. I understand that you want quality stuff, so you pay more for it... but some people buy expensive things just to say they did. Random high-end names that might not even be that well-made, but hey - it's all about the name, right?
Screw that. Buying non-expensive things mean I can get more for less. (Yeah, it's not rocket surgery... I know this.) Add that to the fact that I'm really talented when it comes to being broke, and I rarely buy things as it is? Yeah. Cheap is the way to go.
I'll never understand why people brag about the exorbitant amounts of money they spent on a purse. I'd rather brag about my savvy skills 'o saving cash (read: low-maintenance life).
It makes me laugh when I have conversations like this:
"Cute shoes, Kris! Where'd you get 'em?"
"Thanks! Target. $6. No shit!"
"..... oh" Make a face. Walk away.
"I really like your shirt, Kris. Where'd you get it?"
"Walmart. I got two of 'em cuz they fit so well."
Judgy, judgy facial expressions. So much WalMart hate.
It's ok, though. You can judge me, I don't mind.
I'm proud of it.
And, hell - let's say you and I both had $200 to spend on a sweater. I find one for $15. You have to get the fancy-named one. You end up with $0 left.
I still have $185 for beer and poutine.
