On Sale, Proud of it

I love a good bargain, and sometimes I like to brag if I get something at a great price.
But I never thought it was “cool.”
Today is the first day of school here. Kids are wearing their new clothes, new sneaks. I know some people like to keep the tags on their new hats, but today I saw a guy with the tag still on his shoes. They were bright white shoes, and the big, orange, square tag stood out. So did the words, “Sale! $24.99”
I mean, I like telling friends about my bargain – but do I want the world to know I’m cheap? And this kid is in middle school, where I wouldn’t think frugal = cool. Goes to show how much I know.
