"If you don't love it, don't buy it"

Wednesday, December 7, 2011

Eight words that I have heard dozens of times in my life. My mom used to say this about clothing. We would be in a fitting room and I would have on something that I would be ho-ing and hum-ing over in the mirror and she would tell me, "If you don't love it, don't buy it." How much money I have saved from those eight little words. Only think of all the things that you have purchased because they were cheap. In addition to the price, you should have been thinking about whether or not you really loved the item. If you love it, you will wear it, so buy it.

  1. I try to remember that SOMEWHERE out there, is something I really will love. That is tough when nothing is fitting. But it's true!
