Welcome! If you like to look good, but don’t like to spend money, you are in the right place. That pretty much describes me. I love to shop and I love to put outfits together, but I hate spending a lot on any one item! I am notorious for shopping at WalMart, Rugged WearHouse and Ross. I even admit to buying a few things at Dollar General or Family Dollar. I don’t think I have anything from Dollar Tree, but if they ever start selling clothes, I probably will. My philosophy of shopping is “never spend over $20.00 on any one article of clothing”; every rule has its exception, however, and if I really want something that costs more, I don’t mind paying, especially if I know I will get a lot of wear out of it.
The title of my blog comes from the fact that I am over 50 (way over), and I mostly buy clothing that is $20 or less. My family already knows I am cheap. Now I guess everyone will know!
Speaking of family, I am happily married to a wonderful man and have three amazing adult children and four even-more-amazing grandchildren.
In the spirit of full disclosure, I will tell you that my name is Susan, I was born in 1947, am 5’3″ tall and my weight fluctuates between 135-145. (Maybe posting on this blog will inspire me to keep it in the lower range.) My “normal” size is a 10 depending on the cut, but I have clothing in every size from “small” to “extra large”.
I hope this blog will inspire you to look the best you can at any age, and to save money on buying clothes so you will have enough money to travel and wear all your cute outfits. Oh wait, that is my goal! Maybe you would rather do something else with the money you save. Whatever your goal is, I encourage you to:
LOOK GOOD AND SPEND LESS
