But I do have this quality, stereotypical as it may be... I love shoes!
So the other day when I got a flyer in the mail from Stans Bootery claiming that I'd get a free $10 gift card and a free pair of socks with any shoe purchase, I put that flyer right in my bag and went there the day the special started.
Come on! Free socks!!!
Now, I likely don't need any more shoes. I have a shoe rack, a shoe hanger and my closet floor is covered with shoes.
|Exhibit A: My closet|
I have seven pairs of boots, five pairs of sandals and there are many other varieties and types I won't even go into. But recently my Keens fell apart and I feel I really need a replacement pair of brown shoes that can be worn not only to work but also on a long walk! I do! So off I went to Stans. Anyway, FREE SOCKS!!!
Of course having said that, I should probably mention that I don't really need any more socks either.
|Exhibit B: My sock drawer|
My sock drawer is the biggest of the three top drawers of my dresser, meant for intimate apparel and the like. I also love socks. And once again, there are so many kinds of socks one might need to have in one's wardrobe--knee-highs, decorative socks, seasonal socks, socks for exercising, socks that are so small that you can't even tell you're wearing socks, and socks with toes in them.
I know I don't need anymore shoes. Or socks. But the lure of the colorful flyer was too much for me to handle and I am now the proud owner of a new pair of brown, sensible but comfortable..and cute shoes AND a free pair of socks.
Oh, and a $10 gift card. And of course, you know what that means...I'll have to go back for more!
