I’m a self-proclaimed penny pincher and I’m not ashamed to admit it. I know there are times when I go over board, but I have no shame in my penny pinching game. 💲
When it comes to the things I buy, there are many times where I’ll wear something out or prolong it’s use until I can’t use it / wear it any more. I’m bad about cleaning scratched up CD’s with alcohol that should’ve been thrown away a long time ago. If it’ll still play, I won’t throw it away. It irked me when I had to get rid of my first Sony CD player a few years ago.
I’m the world’s worst when it comes to “wearing out” pants and shoes. I’ll sometimes wear a pair of shoes until the soles fall a part, especially if it’s a pair of my favorite shoes. Same goes for my pants. I don’t have to do it, but I choose to do it. I look at it as me getting my money’s worth. Throwing away something that is halfway still good is like throwing away half of the money you spent on it.
I believe in getting my money’s worth…and then some. I have plenty of clothes and shoes so don’t worry. I penny pinch because I choose to. I enjoy it. There is nothing like it. 👌🏾😉
Until next time…
