I scream "I'm Cheap!"

So, I don't spend a lot on myself. Tend to buy super-clearance clothes, Payless shoes, etc. I've found that cheap sunglasses are also best, especially since someone in the back seat always wants to borrow them, and they're either covered in fingerprints, or they're getting broken into multiple pieces. In fact, I just had to purchase new sunglasses due to Norah breaking them in half a couple of weeks ago.

This brings me to oh-so-embarrassing today.

I was rushing out the door to take the girls to gymnastics. They are in back-to-back classes. (Which only matters, because I was there for so long). So, I grabbed my never-worn shades and cut the tag off of them and threw them up on my head. Got in the car and started driving, but since it was cloudy out, I never pulled them down over my eyes and forgot they were up there.

So, over two hours later, I get home and look in the mirror. I not only realize that I had left my shades on my head, but that I had also left the $5.99 sticker on the eye piece. So that's what you see when you see me and my sunglasses staring at you. I talked to several of the moms, and coaches, and receptionist. Did anyone mention my price tag? Nope!

So there. Now you know too. I'm cheap!

I don't classify that as cheap! I classify that as smart! (not leaving the tag on.....but buying cheap in the first place!!) HA :)

I promise, if I had seen you, I would have told you about the price tag. That's just the kind of friend I am. Then, I would have told you that I buy sunglasses at the dollar store! You are WAY TOO spendy! (:
