Sure you're going to use that Soloflex. I bet that $300 driver you buy each year is going to take off 5 strokes a side. picked by butterknuckle 4 years ago

My Mom and I were just talking to my niece about shampoo--she buys the salon stuff--I told her I use PANTENE(Don't hate me because I'm beautiful) and she said "That's supposed to be really bad for your hair" My mother's repsonse,"That's what they tell you so you will buy their product" And a little bragging here...but every hair dresser I have had since I started using the beautiful product, has told me my hair is so healthy and shiny, etc.

From the comment section

who sells jeans for $20... i buy mine at t.j. max and they're almost always $30 or more... the occasional $100 pair is totally worth it if i can exist in them for a year.

I personally don't care, I buy clothing from thrift stores and I am proud of it. Many of my clothes may be older than me, but at least most of my money isn't funding slave labor.

There's a Goodwill Outlet down the street from my house, and I get almost all of the clothes for my family there. They sell things by the pound, and the more I buy, the cheaper it gets! I think we usually pay 69 cents a pound when we go there, and most clothing items don't weigh a lot.

I have heard about places selling them by the pound, but I have never found a thrift store that does this.

No way could I get by without my landline phone. There is just no damned cell service out here in the sticks.

I read the first point and was willing to concede different pricing structures in different countries (my landline has no line rental and evening/weekend calls are free, whereas my mobile calls cost 40p per minute).

When I got to point two about the golf clubs I realised this wasn't going to apply so much to my lifestyle.
