Ya gotta love THAT!

After my great find at Value Village yesterday - pants that fit like they're MEANT for my body rather than the body of someone with no hips, stomach, or butt - I thought I'd try my luck again today when I had a little more time. Well, to my surprise, my luck held and I found THREE MORE PAIRS of great-looking great-fitting pants. Yay!

Unless you're on a budget as tight as ours, have discovered that EVERY PAIR OF PANTS IN YOUR CLOSET is falling apart at the same time, and you have a lumpy not-made-for-pants body, you probably don't appreciate how HUGE it is to find four decent pairs of pants for $25, without even having to comb through racks and racks of clothes. And one of the pairs is Ralph Lauren. (Not that I'm big into brand names, but I'm happy to know that my $4.99 pants are well made :-)

The "second-hand" stars seem to be aligning for me this weekend! Whoopee!

And now, when I go back to work tomorrow after 2 weeks away, at least I'll be smiling when I glance down at my PANTS!

Yay for bargain finds! I can relate to the whole 'all the pants falling apart at the same time' scenario. I don't know what I'm going to do when summer ends and I can't wear shorts anymore...

I have a similar problem, Heather. My clothes are not yet falling apart, but in the six months I've been off work, every pair of pants I own has shrunk. I can't explain this. A few even bear labels that say "preshrunk." Can I return these items and exchange them for ones that haven't shrunk?
