Thrifty Thursdays*

Thrifty Thursdays: The Shoe Count*

I’m baaaaaaaaack!

I can’t even remember the last time I did a Thrifty Thursday post… isn’t that sad? The move was so crazy, and I feel like things are just beginning to slow down. I’m still working like crazy and there’s still a billion things to do around the house, but I feel like we’re settling into a routine again.

…which means I have a few minutes here and there to do a little thrifting. :)

I actually had a morning off last week and was able to sneak out to Value Village’s half price day sale. I found a cute black dress, and two fabulous pairs of sandals that I am so excited about.

I picked up these cute little brown sandals for work. They are so comfortable! They are from a discontinued Payless brand that I used to love love love, so I was really excited to find them. They ended up only costing me $6, so it basically would have been a crime not to take them.

Then I saw these:

I have to be honest: I have never owned a pair of silver sandals. I’ve always wanted a pair, but I’ve never found ones that I liked. I’ve needed silver sandals for several occasions in the past, and I’ve always ended up borrowing a pair from someone I know.

I love that these are simple and comfortable, and I love that there is just a touch of glam woven into the design:

And really, for $5.50, could I say no?


So, on the topic of shoes… remember when I decided that I was going to count my shoes?

I finally did.

I asked a question on my Facbeook page to see how many pairs of shoes some of my readers and friends have. The majority was definitely in the 10 – 20 pairs range, with the 20 – 30 pairs group following behind.

I’m just a little bit over that. While I’m way below my high of 100 pairs, I’m still a bit above average.

(Which means I still have lots of room to buy more. YAY)

Actually, a friend of mine guessed my number spot on:

Seventy-three pairs.

It’s actually less than I thought, but I can do 73. (for now… ha)

How many pairs do you own?
