Justify the bargain

A favorite and frequently used quote from my early married days (17 years!) came from a dear gal in Texas, the one who told me that sure, I could home school. Love her. She said, “Just because something’s on sale, doesn’t make it right to buy.”  So true.

So what adult-sized person in their right mind would wear a onesie romper? Um, hopefully no one. But we would buy one, as in my oldest child and I, because the price was right. She asked me, “Do embellished tank tops ever sell this low? It’s cheaper than the ugly ones on the rack.” $5 is excellent for a brand new shirt.

Knowing that this garment was made of knit T-shirt fabric helped make this purchase worthwhile. It means that once you cut it, it won’t fray, maybe just curl up a bit. I told “A” of GAIN to buy it, then cut it once we got home. She had to try it on to check the length of the shirt. She reports feeling rather silly, like she was 2 years old. It took extra time to try it on because you have totally undress to put it on. And it would be long enough to work as a top. So she bought it, took it home, then cut it up. Sorry about Blogger rotating my pics.
