folks: someone posted a note on here: starting: I know that for
birthdays & Christmas all things should be new: who started that
thought? the megacorporations! not a normal human being!
the thought, they started the “feel guilty” if you can’t afford to
get it all all all concept to trick the citizens of the usa into buy
more buy more buy more! stop the insanity. stop feeling guilty.
giving them your hard earned money! why do you think they bombard you
with these? it is psychological warfare; directed against you which
by the way is illegal in this country; oh, a designer handbag! 5 easy
payments of $89.95 a month! WHY when I get them at church sales for
50 cents; pick them up at Goodwill, thrift stores, even yard sales
for LESS? Got a Sak purse salvation army $1.00; gave it to someone at
Christmas time; she knew the brand, knew me: was she upset i didn’t
pay megabucks for it? no! got a victor costa embroidered sweater coat
for $4.99 at Goodwill; gave to Sister; was SHE upset I didn’t pay $80
plus s&h to get ‘brand new” NO! Got a pair of Birkis for $1.99
Goodwill; did I whine I didn’t pay $70 to get brand new? Folks: these
had never been worn; had sat in someones closet along with multitude
of others they had paid full price on, then went to goodwill. got
grandson a bike with expensive helmut & bicycle pump for $40; used;
for his birthday; early in fact; got it towards end of April when
passed & saw the free sign on file cabinet along with the bike; i
took both; said happy birthday early! he had tried it out & was
thrilled; but said “it’s to much money”; i said no it’s not; & told
him to put helmut on & be careful riding home; i explained to him
that the cheapest helmut at walmart was $19; so it was in fact a
GREAT buy; of course he got birthday cake etc on birthday but he was
in 7th heaven over the bike; he didn’t care if it was used or not;
why should you?
