There are some things in the world that I refuse to pay for. There is also a bunch of crap I will never pay full price for.
Here are some of those things:
1. Manicures and Pedicures
2. Pens and Pencils
Do you know how many places give out free pens and pencils? Tons.
Ryan has a way too many toys. I go through and donate a bunch of them every few months. With Grandmas who love to spoil him and awesome friends who give us their hand-me-downs, I have never bought Ryan a toy.
4. Home Remodeling Labor
I have a Jared for that.
Since when did gardeners get paid $100 an hour?
I'm not paying for that. I'll just leave it looking like a mess until our kitchen is done.
Why pay someone when you can trade with friends? Plus the babysitters here in Camarillo are expensive. Like, $10 an hour for 1 kid expensive.
I was forced to get a babysitter the last time I was in Utah, and she charged $2/hour. Of course I paid her more because I felt like I was ripping her off. I don't like to rip off teenagers.
7. A Maid
There are times when I have seriously considered hiring one, but I cannot justify paying for something I should do myself. It doesn't help that I'm a clean freak and would probably re-clean everything after the Maid left anyway.
8. A Car Wash
Another thing I should do myself.
9. Full Price Clothing
I live right by the Camarillo Outlet Stores. I also keep friends from when I used to work in retail at Lucky and Joe's Jeans. $40 for $180 jeans..... yes please.
When I can't get a discount, I don't buy it.
10. Anything full price at Michaels craft store
I use the 40% off coupons shamelessly. I make Pee-Baby buy items for me if I need more than one item.
Boring post, I know. Here is a picture to make it better.
