Unprecedented

Some of you who know me, are aware of my "over the top" approach of frugality when it comes to shoes.  As a matter of fact, Father of Five's Observation #6 dealt with just this topic.

Recently, the pair of shoes I bought to replace the ones in Observation #6, are falling apart.  The soles are cracking (just like the ones in the photo), and (approaching the level of "brutally honest") they have lost their odoriferous freshness (if you know what I mean).

I finally broke down, and went to the store to pick out a pair of shoes.  Fifteen minutes later (that's how I roll when it comes to shopping... Hit and run / In and out / Over and done) - anyway fifteen minutes later I am leaving the store having bought TWO pairs of shoes...

Gasp!  Cough!  Choke!  Wheeze!

Did you just say TWO pair of shoes... In the same YEAR?!?!

Yup pardner... That's right... TWO PAIR OF SHOES!

In an unprecedented move - I went out and actually bought TWO pair of shoes.  What I like to call "brown shoes" and "tennis shoes".  The two kinds of shoes I own.  Brown, and tennis.

new shoes 

What would make me do such a thing? 

Sale + Clearance + additional 15% off items (sale and clearance included) = Two pair of new shoes for 45 bucks!

Even a fugal shoe miser like me can not turn down a deal like that!

And now, I'll sign off with a promise that we will not have to talk about shoes or shoe shopping again for at least a couple of years!

  1. That sale rocked! Glad you decided to splurge and treat yourself to some descent footwear.

  2. Dave,
    I will keep your promise not to speak of shoes, printed, here at my console,to remind you, should you stray from your vow of shoe silence . . . but should another deal like the Heaven's Gate shoe extravaganza occur . . .

  3. Great Deal! I love to find bargins like that! I found Sweet Pea's Nike (pink I might add) tennis shoes for $6. Dad Stuff was mighty happy when I told him that price. I think he might have even considered wearing pink shoes had they had his size (humor).....

  4. That's a good deal. Too bad that we have to wear boots for a couple of more months.

  5. Good deal! Good shopping! Congrats!

    I rather feel that way about buying most things, but it generally takes me longer than 15 minutes and my guys even longer.

    I have learned that having your feet comfortable is very important. I cannot afford really good shoes, but we do need to wear semi-decent ones.

    Wishing you happy feet!

  6. Hello, thank you for your comment on my blog. 15 years as a call taker I can imagine nothing phases you. Everytime the phone rings I fear for the worst.

    Nothing too terrible yet though. I hope I'll be able to stay calm and collected when the time comes.
