I know...this is not becoming of a Christian woman.
But, it is the truth.
I am sitting here thinking over the things I buy and the things I turn my nose up at.
There is something to be said for good quality.
I have bought into the lie that "the higher the price, the better the quality".
For example, I decided that since VS bras were expensive, they had to be good.
Same with their underwear.
So, with my weight loss I bought me some.
Let me tell you, there is no difference in quality of their underwear vs. Hanes.
Seriously. Actually, I think my Hanes have held up longer.
I buy my little one's clothing from Gymboree.
This is a case where through experience I *know* that the quality is worth the cost.
Still, I buy only during sales.
My challenge to myself is to stop being fooled by advertising and go with the best bargain for quality.
This means I will shop for quality, not for price or brand.
I have thankfully never bought into the Coach purse fad...
(or any luxury high-dollar fashion trend)
For that I am grateful...
