I decided to do this story because I’m cheap. I splurge randomly and often impetuously, but I prefer bargains. The funny thing is that I’m not particularly frugal. If my favorite yogurt is twice the price of a similar brand, I’ll buy my favorite every time. I don’t buy generic or lower quality just because it’s cheap.
I will spend $25 on a hamburger (not every day), but it is not out of the question for the right burger. However, I would never buy a $100 T-shirt. There are a lot of cheap quality tees and I’m good enough at finding them.

So anyway, this story sounds cliché but it doesn’t take a fortune to be fabulous. I write: “In fact, money can sometimes be a hindrance. Yeah, I said it. Spending more doesn’t mean you get more … You have to appreciate style, not just consume it.”
