So, at the end of date night recently, hubby and I decided to jot into the mall to see if I could find any nice-fitting jeans.
We went into Express. In the past I have found that some of their jeans fit me fabulously.
I grabbed a few pairs and headed for the dressing room. I was not disappointed--I found the perfect pair.
Perfect, that is, until I looked at the price tag. $80.
You could have picked me up off the rugged, modern floor (as if the very loud pop music alone wasn't coma-inducing enough...).
Good-bye, Express! I'm workin' the cash envelopes here, and there is no way I'm forking out $80 for a pair of jeans.
Then it dawned on me. Ebay! At home I perused their site for a few days, and then I found the same pair of jeans. Shipped to my door for $18.50. And pre-shrunk, at that!
This is one of my first experiences buying clothes on eBay, and I will admit that it requires patience. I tried the same idea with a pair of Old Navy jeans, and the ones I received from eBay turned out to be too tight (an older version of the same pair of jeans). So I'll resell those. But overall, I was pleased to be able to find my $80 jeans for a fraction of the cost.
Do you shop for clothes online?
