Ladies--(My name should be SPILL)...$$ of Clothes
[Return to Topics]

For a long time, since I was 32, I sure can spill
on my clothes! (it can only get worse from now
on as I age!) Thank God for Shout and Zout,
and aldi's Astra detergent, I get a lot of things
out, and get more wear out of a garment.
No, when I was 32, I got this health syndrome
that makes me such a bumblebug (clumsier). Hard to accept--when I was such a neatnik most of the
time. Now, it seems I just spill all the time
since then.
Sometimes, I don't even spill on myself in a
restaurant--I have a grease stain from the edge
of the table where it didn't get washed off!
I have always hated garage sale clothes, as that's all my MIL would bring us--wear it a couple
times, button pops off, button holes shot, or
after a couple washings the fabric would be too
thin--(being a gal).
So, I have been toying with getting some clothes
from one of those "gently used" stores. I love
it when I find a sale rack, but I don't always time it right. I usually save all the stained
stuff for outdoor work to wear them out--just wear
the new stuff to town.
I would love to wear T-shirts, they're cheap,
but I look really lousy in them. Anybody find
a way to beat the costs, or know when to hit the
sales? I do very well with jeans, but feel money
goes down the drain on tops and blouses.

I like being neat, however, my wife can tell for the most part where I had lunch or what I ate for lunch. Its the food left on my shirt!!!! Arrrr.....

We don't pay much for clothes, if we pay anything at all...

Lawn sales and rummages around here are all cast-offs from rich folk...

I can outfit a woman or a kid with a seasons worth of clothing for less than $10...

Then they become cleaning rags for the shop...

Beall's outlet has a great selection of clothes anywhere from 2.99 all the way up as high as you want to go. I wear tons of t shirts. Once they go through a couple of farrowing events they usually have to go in the rag bag. Just watch the logos on them, I bought a t shirt that was supposed to have the name of our town on it, at first glance it looked like it did. It took my daughter to point out that it was mis spelled only after I'd worn it all over town on several occasions.

Country folks go buy their fed in feed bags that are especially printed in patterns to make clothes.Or,,Has there been a change in trends recently?

Yep all the bags are paper except whole corn which is some type of vinyl blend. Hot as heck in the summer, and the paper doesn't hold up well when you get sweaty. : )
