YOU KNOW YOU’VE BEEN THRIFTING TOO MUCH WHEN…
So the other night I had this dream that involved much danger and leagues of assassins. I was trying to flee from a gigantic wolf, but my attempts were thwarted because I could not get my flying ottoman started.
That’s right, I could only be saved by a flying ottoman. And not just any ottoman. It was this one…
…the vintage handmade ottoman I bought last October for a buck. Which actually looks like this now, it got some new clothes.
I have no idea what if anything this dream means, unless my subconscious is trying to tell me to pay two bucks next time and get an ottoman that will take off when I need it to.
In other thrifty news, I stopped by Kohl’s today to use the $10 gift card they sent in the mail. They do these promotions every so often; $10 off anything that costs at least $10. It's the only time I go in their stores and my aim is to get as close to $10 as I can. I needed socks, so I picked up two packs that are normally priced $10 each, but were on sale.
Still had to shell out after the gift card was deducted. A whole 32 cents. That’s pretty darned good for six pairs of socks, even by my standards.
Hey, at that rate I could probably even afford to pay two bucks for the next ottoman!
