On being frugal...

I only own two pairs of dress black shoes, and had they not been $50 shoes that I got on clearance for $8, I would only own one. Believe it or not, I don't even have brown dress shoes, because I don't own brown dress pants...

I was raised that you buy it when you need it. I own 2 pairs of "tennies" only because I needed 2 pair for the breast cancer walk. 1 pair of brown boots, one pair of black. One pair of black sandals, one pair of fancy flip flops, one pair of cheap ones. Really, I think that's it.

I love my black shoes, they are no where near being worn out... except the heals. I wore out the little rubber thing on both pairs... however, ever heard of shoe repair? I have! Spent $10 to get the little rubber things put on. Kind of funny since I only paid $8 for the shoes but still... it was worth the money!

Proverbs 13:11 Dishonest money dwindles away, but he who gathers money little by little makes it grow

One more thing... Please pray for Stacy's daughter Alexa, she's in children's hospital in Detroit for HSP. The blood is leaking out of her vessels & capillaries!! Pray for Alexa, mom, doctor's nurses, HEALING!!

Frugal is a good trait Margie. One that will get you further along with less complaining when times get tough. I'm praying this minute for Alexa.
