Two for One Offer

I'm quite partial to the 'brand new' top that I found the other day.  And I'm even more fond of it because it didn't even cost me a penny!

After  absent mindedly dressing,  I was a bit flabbergasted when I looked in the mirror and momentarily didn't recognise what I was wearing.   Then it dawned on me. it was something that I'd found in last year's Decathlon sale for the very reasonable price of seven Euros  but, of course, I'd put it on inside out.  Instead of feeling like a doofus, I was surprised  that I was actually pleased with the result.  The colour is lovely and the seams just look like a feature of the garment.  So I cut out the label and wore my 'new' hoodie with pride!

It occured to me that there might be other things in the wardrobe that could double up in the same way.  Another sale purchase, a blue cotton Howies jumper with a pink stripy lining fits the bill too.  Armed  only with a pair of scissors, you may wish to delve into your closets and see how many new outfits of you own that you can find.  But don't get carried away.  As this advert from Tide demonstrates, it's a habit that needs to be curbed just before it has ridiculous consequences!
