St Vincent de Paul:
1. Perforated leather oxfords, $2.00
2. Striped dress, 99¢
3. Sweatshirt, 99¢
(The dress and sweatshirt were in the kids section and everything there was 99¢.)
4. Grandpa vest, $1.99
5. Belt, $1
6. Floral tights, $9.95
7. Black and gray zebra scarf, $5.99
8. Pettipants, 6 x $7.99 = $47.94
If you aren’t familiar with pettipants, they are like a cross between underwear and a slip. My order arrived mid-month and I'm a convert to, what I now call, "lady boxers." I bought the 4 inch inseam model (the shortest available), because many of my skirts are on the short side. Love 'em!
Finally, Hillary of The Gleam of Rose Tea sold a few of her things in late April and I bought a pair of shoes:
9. Multicolored wedges, $10
Total was $80.85. There’s nothing like a good ol’ punch in the face from the government to help one stay within budget!
(By the way, think I wore my new cowboy boots enough? I'm determined to get my $200 worth of wearing.)
