Before you purchase a designer pair of jeans, do yourself a favor and try on a pair of Wal-Mart jeans. You might find yourself walking away with a bargain!
As I was shopping one early weekend morning, I was drawn to one particular corner within our local Wal-Mart store — the recently marked down racks. Not one to pass up a bargain and to sate my curiosity, I ended up purchasing a pair of loose fitting $7 jeans. I justified my purchase by telling myself that at the very least, I could use them when running weekend errands.
Who would’ve thought those same pair of jeans would get so much attention? During yesterday’s normal frenzied routine to work, I scrambled to my closet, grabbed the jeans, quickly pulled the tags off, and wore them for Casual Friday. Not only did I receive compliments from my peers but for a moment, I could’ve sworn their expressions were momentarily frozen in a perplexing state of “shock and awe”. I’m proud of my meager $7 Wal-Mart purchase.
In the words of one of my Facebook friends, “the older we get, the wiser we become in our shopping choices”.
