Some habits like shopping might be hard to control a mist the state of the economy. A few days ago a friend and I went to a near by thrift shop and we had a blast. The place was clean and had great oldies blaring from the radio, think Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin and some old Michael Jackson, before all the plastic surgery. I think we spent over two hours walking up and down the aisles. It was like going down other people's memory lane through clothes. I just couldn't believe some things that were there. Why would someone ever buy high heeled timberland looking boots in sky blue or in any color for that matter? I left with a navy pinstriped vest and two books and it didn't even add up to five bucks...now that's a bargain. So head to your local DI, Salvation Army, Goodwill, or Value Village and feed your habit on the cheap.
