My mother sent me my birthday card with a ten dollar bill inside. :) She instructed me to spend it on myself. So per instructions, I bought two pairs of sherbet colored socks from the dollar store and a pair of pretty hair bobs (hair's been out of control lately). A beautiful vintage Pendleton wool skirt , ballerina pink sweater, and a happy vintage floral scarf from the thrift store. And a bean burrito fresco style from Taco Bell. For a grand total of $9.00. The remaining cash , I dropped in the Salvation Army pot, although I must confess, I thought hard about spending it on a donut with green, white, and red sprinkles. Oh well, I got more enjoyment out of hearing the ringer say "Merry Christmas". I think I did that ten dollar bill justice! Who says it isn't fun to be thrifty?
