I don't know if this qualifies as a bargain but yesterday I stooped to a new level in my 'lovelife'. I bought a pair of ugly shoes I don't even like because the guy was hot.
In an effort to prolong conversation, I tried on 5 pairs of trainers from him and when I ran out of sneakers to try on, I simply bought a pair, buying me another minute to chat with him at the cash register.
Where is the bargain in this story? The New Balances were 25% off! (so I only spent $67 instead of $90 to flirt with a boy for 10 minutes!) $6.70 per minute to enjoy (attempted) witty repartee while shyly checking him out as he threaded the shoelaces for me. Bonus: the store's closing down so I have no chance of returning these clunkers. I guess it'll give me motivation to run fast in them so no-one can see how unstylishly white & chunky they are.
To be fair, I DO need running shoes and they ARE ultra-comfortable so the NB's are perfectly fine if i don't care about looks at all...which clearly I do given I just bought ugly shoes to score some time with a good-looking guy.
