Spoiler alert: I did not win a motza on a $2 Instant Scratch-It. I did, however, bag me a bargain. Allow me to explain …
When I’m standing in a queue, with not much to do, I’m the kind of browser who investigates everything in store. Those choccies on special? Yep, I clocked ’em. That mini picnic basket with the cute little thermos? Been there, seen that. But last week, I stumbled across something so out-of-the-box fantastic that I had to hotfoot it straight to the counter.
This little encounter involved a golden slipper (well two, to be precise). See that little silver pouch above? Well, inside were a pair of rolled gold flats — for the princely sum of $2. That’s a dollar per shoe, who knew?
I cannot tell you how many times I’ve purchased emergency slip-ons; it’s usually anytime between “these-blisters-are-beating-me” and “help-my-ankles-are-growing-cankles”. Heels at a wedding that went too long? Ill-fitting pumps for an uncomfortable meeting? You get the idea.
Now, thanks to these $2 ballet flats hidden in my handbag, Cinderella will go to the ball. And she’ll be able to walk home.
(P.S. This is not a sponsored post, just a little something I picked up at my local Post Office.)
Tell me, what’s the best $2 you’ve ever spent?
