I don't get paid until Monday but will need that money to pay the remainder of a pet deposit, bills due, and live and save to cover Dec's check that will only be for a few days' work since they reneged on their agreement to pay me without holding back 2 weeks. But, I needed clothes that weren't the typical "nice" clothes for work due to a certain project I've been assigned for this upcoming week. So I decided to try to find a thrift store or second-hand store to get 1- 2 more outfits for this week. (Remember I only came here with a toal of 3 carloads of stuff, have lost a lot of weight over the past 2 years so I left most clothes behind because they didn't even fit anymore.) Then I checked weather forcasts and found that I won't need warmer tops so I'm ok in that area this week. I found SIX thrift stores are within a few miles of where I live and three are charity-based. So I started on my journey and the first one was huge and the clothes looked brand new. It isn't easy finding clothes in my size because I'm short but I bought two casual type pants, two blue jeans, one belt, and one pair of shoes- for less than $40! I couldn't believe it! They have a lot of other things I can use, too, but will need to wait and go back over time. Kitchenware, and stuff like that- along with some smaller furniture. Anyway, then I went on to Wally-world because I was running out of time and wanted to pick up something for the grill this evening, which I just started. I bought myself a pair of those gel shoes since I'll be walking thousands upon thousands of feet this coming week, and socks. Another $40. Wow- I'm happy!
