Today was a small victory! My dh stands all day and his feet bother him. He has to have very good tennis shoes to work in, and he wears them out quickly. He needs a new pair about every 6 month.
We use to take off a day to drive to the mall (2 hours one way) and he would try on shoes most of the day. What a chore!

About 8 years ago, I said NO MORE Malls!!
So, he has been getting his new shoes at the local store that carries almost everything, but he has a hard time finding anything he likes.

Today, he found 2 pairs of shoes!! Not one, but two! They were $100 each, but marked down to $40 each. He started to just get the one pair, but I said, oh no, we will just go thru this again in 6 months, get both pair.
So we got a year's worth of shoe shopping done in about 10 minutes today. I am kind of glad he could not go to work today. ( icy road in N. Carolina)
I won 3 games of mah jong yesterday, so that is $3 to add to my challenge money.
Prev. total $1331.00
total 3.00
new total $1334.00

    that's great. i also have a hard time finding shoes, and hate shoe shopping (for work shoes...) I usually wait until they are completely falling apart before I make myself go and find more. I am only on my feet for half the week so it is not as important as it is for your hubby, so I usually go for Dunlops as they are cheaper but still well made at around $15-$20 depending on specials. I really need to invest in some good arch support insoles though, thanks for reminding me!

    I also don't like shoe shopping - I have *very* picky tastes and it usually is hard for me to find what I want. So, I also tend to wear my shoes out till they are just not fit to wear to work anymore, and then some. If I do happen to find a pair that fit the bill, even if I don't need a new pair *right then* I will go ahead and buy them to save me the hassle a few months down the road. Smile

    Good thinking on the two fer. I HATE shopping, so when I find a good deal, I tend to stock up also.

    It was very smart to get both pairs. It will save you time and money in the long run.
