I totally pride myself on being the Queen of Clearance. Yes, that is a Country & Yes, I am the Queen...in my own little world. My Country...Clearance...has Sale Racks on every corner & Coupons that NEVER expire. Oh isn't that a dream come true?
That being said, I can find a Clearance rack with my eyes closed. I know when the stores have their extra % off sales & I make sure I am there. I even carry along my coupons to use with the sale. CHA CHING! Double Bonus! I am proud of my shopping accomplishments...most days.
But there are days my Crown looks a little crooked.
My wise husband helps adjust my crown after a day of shopping with his thought provoking questions "Did you really need it? or was it just a Clearance sale?" OUCH! Ladies, why does he always take those cheap shots? (I know, because he wouldn't take expensive shots because that would be wasting money!) Doesn't he realize the money I saved? I almost went to jail over that deal it was such a steal!
Are you with me?
You know the deal I am talking about...that $1.99 picture frame (Retail Price $29.99) that you just knew you were gonna use & it is still in the box buried in some closet...Guilty right here!
The truth hurts my people of Clearanceville...how did we go from a county to a small town in like 3 paragraphs? Never mind, we must press on!
Oh hear me (I mean hear my husband/Dave Ramsey)...if you don't need it, don't buy it. Even if it is a steal & on Clearance. Again, Clearance is good...(I should know, I am the Queen of it) but only if you need it!
Did I just type that? Boy, I better practice what I preach or give up my crown.
What am I trying to say? Not sure, because I love to shop...I am just preaching to this choir, this shopaholic, this Queen of Clearance. Thanks for listening to the ramblings.
OK, I'm a little depressed after this post...anyone wanna go shopping?
See you at the Mall! You know where you can find me...Clearanceville!
Subliminal message...If you mUst Shop...PAY CASH!
