It’s been years since I owned a black denim skirt. I found this one on the clearance rack at Myer (hello old friend) marked down from $30 to $21.
“$21” I thought, “I don’t know, that’s pretty steep”. (How cheap am I? Very, apparently. But it’s weird because I’ll think nothing of spending $150 on skin cream. But maybe that’s because I’ve never seen my brand on a clearance rack. Anyway, probably a good time to end the bracket here…)
So I stood in the fitting room mulling it over when eventually I thought, “I’ve got that $20 voucher, I’ll just grab it.” Off to the register I went, still half unsure. Did I REALLY need it? Did I REALLY want to spend my hard earned voucher on a black denim skirt that I didn’t REALLY need.
Oh for gods sake Selise, it’s a $21 skirt. Just buy the thing. After some stern internal dialogue I handed the skirt over. “That’s $7.50 thanks”, said the sales girl. I about choked. “$7.50?” “Yep”. Turns out $7.50 is exactly the amount I needed to decide that I did REALLY need it.
And you know what? I didn’t even use my voucher. I’m saving it for my next bout of retail turmoil.
