Cheap Chica 's Topic Tuesday: Do you lie about the price you paid?


Yes, I do realize it is Wednesday and Topic Tuesday should've been done yesterday, lol. I'll be on time next week.

This week's topic of discussion:

"Do you ever lie about the price you pay for your clothes/shoes?'

I used to do this a lot when I was younger. If I got a shirt from Ross, TJ Maxx, etc. and someone complimented me and asked the price of it, I would add at least another $20-30 on to how much I really paid for it. At that time, it was all about impressing people, making it seem like I had so much money (yeah right), and being embarrassed about how much I really paid forit. Now, I'm like screw it. If someone ask me how much I paid for something now, I proudly tell them $5, $10... you get where I'm coming from. Discuss.

I can honestly say I don't.
I've lied about where I got things because I didn't want that person to go out and get it, too. LMAO!

I don't...I actually feel proud to tell people that I got something nice at a really cheap price. Bet they can't beat that!

I used to when I was younger. Now I'm just like you... If it was $5 then hey I tell em. I do what Rai does though LOL. I so lie about where I got certain things so people won't copy. Swagger jackin is NOT in!

Same thing with me... When I was younger I did lie, but now I tell how much I paid. I'm proud of my shopping skills!!

not about the price, but where i found it. everything comes from a quaint little boutique!! LOL! a girl has to have some secrets.

My friends are impressed when I get something nice for the low low. I'm the type that will tell you what I paid for an item before you even ask.

Now, telling people where I got stuff...that's another story entirely. I've seen with my own eyes girls that have bought the exact same item someone else had after they asked where it came from.

That won't be me. lol.

I actually tend to lie and say less, like if it was $25 I'll say $20! Well, at least to my mom, who tells me I shouldn't shop at all and should put more money towards bills- she doesn't understand my desire to. (But I love it so much!!!)

Nah, I'm proud when I find deals. Like the last pair of shoes I bought, A pair of steve madden peep toe booties I copped at Ross for $13.99!

teresa said...

I don't recall ever lying about how much I paid for something. Now I have to stop myself from telling people about my designer finds on the cheap. I'll write about it of course. But I realized that most people don't want to hear about my $80 Sigerson Morrisons. lol
