Recently, while thrifting at my local Goodwill a pair of used Prada’s in almost perfect condition caught my attention from the on the shoe rack . I hesitated to buy them because I was not there for myself. I was trying to practice self-control and they weren’t even in my size. So I walked away.
Shortly after arriving home from my shopping trip I couldn’t stop thinking about those damn shoes. The more I thought about them the more I began to think that I had made a bad decision by walking away and that I should immediately head back to the store because those Prada’s were only $10. Yes, you read that correctly $10 for a pair of black Prada shoes which would normally retail for $325. So, I began to think if I went back to the store this purchase could qualify as an investment because I would then have equity in my soles.
I thought about that pair of shoes all day. Later that night I even dreamed that I was walking in my new shoes which fit 2.5 sizes big. When I woke up at around 3 a.m my first thought that crossed my mind was that the store is probably closed for the night but they would be open by 9am. So I said a small prayer to the shoe gods that everyone else who shopped at the Goodwill today had overlooked my shoes just as I had. But before I could close my eyes and go back to sleep I came up with the perfect sole saving plan – Which consisted of me waking up at 6 a.m. to be at the store by 8:30 a.m which meant I would beat the morning crowd and get my shoes…
