An Odd Competition

There are those who like name brands, and there are those of us who are cheap.

I am thankful to be surrounded by a bunch of ladies at work who have turned frugality into a kind of competition.

One lady is always happy to show off her Goodwill overalls.

Another brags about her deals at Walmart.

I show off my clearance blouses for $5-$10.

Our youngest coworker loves Old Navy bargains but has upped the ante by mentioning her donations to charity and the paring down of her wardrobe to a handful of shirts, one dress, and one nice pair of shoes.

We are currently regrouping to consider this new gauntlet. Although two of us have admitted to not owning a dress for years. 😀

Until next time.

    I think Walmart is great. I am the last of the big spenders.
