Over the weekend, my mother-in-law and I went to downtown Loris to shop. She wandered into Cato and I wandered into the Salvation Army. For those of you unfamiliar with Cato, it is a clothing store with a lot of clothes that I would wear normally – in fact, it’s too tempting for me. I believe I could buy one of everything in that store.

So I really hoped the Salvation Army would surprise me with their selection. And they really did! I scored not one, but four pairs of capris pants in my size that I could actually wear to work! This NEVER happens to me, not even at a regular clothing store. I also found a couple of shirts and a cute Old Navy dress for my daughter. My total was only $20.34! I scored big and made up for all the guilt in buying those cheater pants!

Over the same weekend, I also returned the cheater pants to Walmart. I never even tried them on!
