Shoes over Carbs.

21 Dec

Many who know me knows I am very frugal and have dedicated this year to saving by spending money on fiscal smart purchases as I’m saving to buy a new car at the top of next year. One of the many things I do to save money is budget. I make a budget for everything and give myself a weekly allowance of 50-100 bucks. In this allowance I have to make it work for everything I need for that week including food. Yes you read that right I do buy food…sometimes.

As I was leaving work yesterday after organizing 3 major closets for 7 hours I found myself hungry like F#@K CARBS hungry, too tired to go home to cook I decided to get a veggie sub from Subway. Howbeit, this Subway is located right by a Burlington Coat Factory. I hardly every go there only to find home-decor items or coats- go figure. I figured since I haven’t finished my Christmas shopping I could see what I could find. Cut to me roaming around the store ignoring the loud rumbling in my belly when I saw these Moccasins.


I love moccasins, I have 3 pairs but I don’t have a hard sole pair for the winter. Low and behold I seen these amazing pair of shoes from boat shoe company Sebago with Vibram soles, most known for their awful fivefingers running shoes. I couldn’t believe my luck picking up the only pair that happen to be my size at $39.99. Then on my way to the cash-wrap I seen another pair of boots by the same company tucked away by the holiday candies (must have been a fatty who left them distracted by all the goodies) for $24.99.

I was beyond stoked. Until I left the store and realize I just spent all my weekly allowance.

Long story short- I saved on the shoes but failed to get dinner and went home without food or my nephew & nieces’ Christmas gifts. Oh well these boot will look amazing this weekend in Dallas.

Who needs food, the load of compliments from these shoes will fill me up just right.
