I'm Not Cheap, But I Occasionally Try to Be Frugal...,

My e-mail inbox today included a missive from a firm that was offering to sell me pairs of jeans.
There were several variations.
They were high quality.
They were at a deep discount - at 40% off they started around $260. and went to around $350.
I looked at them - nice shadings, and had that already been worn look that is so coveted.
Then I looked at the Levi's 501s that I was wearing after crawling under the hood of one of my trucks and having done some yard work.
I really couldn't see a difference - but my wallet did.
I passed on the opportunity.
