My 3 Monsters: Humor Me . . .

Humor Me . . .

Brent gets tired of playing the "Guess how much I paid for this" game. You'll be kind enough to play along, won't you? SO . . . Guess how much I paid for this cute sweater? Need some hints? It's Ann Taylor and the original price tag says $78, but it was marked down to $44.99. Now, guess how much I paid for it. C'mon, guess!

$4.48!!!!!!!!!!!!! No joke! Here's the deal . . . I buy some of my kids' clothes at Goodwill. I'm not ashamed to say it. (Well, maybe just a little, but hopefully you wouldn't guess it to look at them.) My kids wear out their clothes so fast and they don't care (yet) where they come from. I'm cheap. That's how I roll. And I happen to have a pretty well-stocked Goodwill here. I often find cute brand new stuff, with the tags still on. In fact, I just got Sis some Abercrombie & Fitch jeans there. $1.50! Yep. That's the kind of stuff I buy. For my kids. I've never been humble enough to look for myself. I walked in on Saturday and on the first rack, right in front of my face was this brown crocheted sweater. I thought, "Hmm. That's cute." When I looked closer I thought, "That's really cute. And it's my size." THEN I saw the original price tags. IT HAS NEVER BEEN WORN!!! So, I quickly looked both ways to make sure no one I knew was there and threw it in the cart.

So, I guess the cat's out of the bag. You won't tell anyone will you? And you'll tell me if we look like ragamuffins in our second hand clothing? Thanks. You're real pals.


  1. My guess was $12. Way to go! Is the Good Will like DI? It's amazing how we've become so much of a "throw away" society. Tags still on? That's the best!

  2. Just like DI, only better because Mormons in general follow the "use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without" principle. By the time we decide to give anything to DI it's usually on it's last legs. People who contribute to Goodwill (at least around here)throw away brand new items or things their kids have only worn a few times. They're few and far between, but they're in there. It's kind of like a fun treasure hunt for me.


Thanks for leaving a comment. I try to respond to every one, even if it takes me a little while!
