I meant to do my work today,
But a brown bird sang in the Apple tree,
And a butterfly flitted across the field,
And all the leaves were calling me.
And the wind went sighing over the land,
Tossing the grasses to and fro,
And a rainbow held out its shining hand---
So what could I do but laugh and go?

We have met the enemy and he is us. Sometimes our own attitudes and preconceptions and habits cause us to shoot ourselves in the foot. Sometimes an idea comes along that we are not ready for but later there comes a time. I am going to give you a suggestion that you may not be ready for, an idea that you may have a preconception against. But take your time and think about it. The suggestion (if you have not yet adopted it) will save you bundles of money.
You have heard of pre-owned automobiles; you have heard of pre-owned houses. Consider pre-owned clothes. Do your clothing shopping at Good Will. The prices are much, much cheaper than new clothes. (Even when purchased at discount outlets.) You can easily find quality that is excellent. In many cases the fabrics appear to have been seldom used. In some cases you will find items that you would have never considered purchasing new because of their cost.
Here in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex (DFW), I have discovered another men's resale outlet called Gentry, located at 8218 Grapevine Highway; 817-428-4196. Their resale garments are of the highest quality and carefully marked as to size.
I think about this here in my laundry room in my web house because after my clothes come out of the washer and dryer, no one could possibly tell where I bought them. A shirt purchased by me from Dillards looks just like one from Good Will. I invite you to shop at my exclusive haberdashers, Gentry and Good Will.
