Even the queen is cutting back.

February 24th, 2009 at 03:30 pm

Queen elizabeth, who has a personal fortune of 475 million, is cutting back this year. She has breached etiquette by wearing the same outfit more than once in public in the past year. Can you imagine that??
This came from a short article in the debt proof living newsletter that I get once a month.
Can you imagine not wearing the same outfit twice? Heck, I have two pair of jeans that I wear every single day, all week long.
I did play mah jong a lot the past few days and won 8 games, so that is $8 I will add to my challenge money.
Prev. total $3914.00
today 8.00
new total $3922.00

    Hopefully, the Queen is doing it to set an example for her subjects. But yeah, English royalty have many interesting protocols they have to follow....

    I wonder how if she/they realize how awful that sounds. Not to wear the same item twice...heaven forbid. I wonder what other frugal changes the royalty are making.

    Ugh, I hate how she asked for a raise recently, saying she hadn't had one in about 10 years. Um, I'm sorry, but you don't have a job, you're just the biggest recipient of welfare in the world. Be grateful England doesn't ship you off to a discount old folks' home!

    i am pretty sure she wears the same clothes at home, just not in public.
    i have about 30 or 40 dresses and probably half of them i have only worn once.

    Interesting what those in a different position consider "cutting back". Heck, I just hope I don't wear the same outfit twice in the same week to work. Same slacks is ok, as long as it's with a different blouse, so I don't look like I grabbed the whole outfit from off the heap in the floor!
