In our quest for financial comeback, there is little room for frivolous expenditures. This means that anything and everything that’s even remotely considered a luxury has to go. (Diet Coke is considered a necessity to me.)
Yesterday I was doing errands and ran across a dry cleaner’s sign that said “Dresses $10.00.” I was perplexed. Were they selling dresses for $10.00 or were they dry cleaning them for $10.00? The thought that any of us wanting life after debt would spend $10.00 to clean something made me choke.
You can buy a new dress at Goodwill for $4.98. It’s washable. You can buy Dryel at the drug store for under $10 and do several of your own loads. Forget the dry cleaning. I think the dry cleaners have been cleaning up.
