Oldies but Goodies: Getting The Most Out of Your Purchases

See those boots.  They are mine.  I bought them in 1997.  I was 17.  I worked at Bob's Stores.  They were on the clearance rack.  I had an employee discount.  16 years later - they are still trucking.  A ton of stuff has happened in my life since 1997, so I might be wrong, but I want to say I paid $18 for them.

Don't you just love it when something lasts a long time?  And gets a ton of use?  You can't say that about many things these days - but I'm so happy and proud of my Columbia boots.  I have never bought another pair of boots (well - unless you count the ones the Marines made me buy).  Here's to another 16 years.  I love you Columbia boots!

Confession..when you were living in Hawaii and some of your stuff was here (including boots), I would wear them when it snowed. I was sorry to see them go! This is like the Sisterhood of the Traveling Boots.
