I honestly could care less what other people think of what I buy. I buy it for me, not for them! I'll buy stuff at family dollar, dollar general and the dollar tree. I get most of my spices that I use regularly, like garlic powder and oregano etc. at one of those stores because they usually have large sizes for a buck. One thing though, that I NEVER skimp on is my toilet paper. I have to have my Cottonelle with aloe & E!
I remember wanting a pair of white keds with the little blue tag on the back of the heel. I was always upset at my mom for never buying me Keds because all the popular girls were wearing keds with the little blue tag. I hated my "bobo" keds from walmart! I wore them though, she wasn't going to buy me anything else! Now that I'm paying the bills, those keds can stay on the shelf!
There are only four questions of value in life, Don Octavio. What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same: only love. ~ Don Juan De Marco
