What Fresh Hell Is This? 8/29/19

Besides the fact that August us almost over … and that might not be hell since cooler weather would be a respite.

I’ve written many times about my frugality caused in part by my depression era parents.¬† Waste not want not being one of the most valuable life lessons they imparted on me.¬† I will wear my shoes until they fall apart … literally as in this photographic evidence.


You’ll have to trust that is me because I cropped out my face – my glasses were askew.¬† When I first aired this picture, folks assumed I was inebriated.¬† I wasn’t but I can see how they’d think that.¬† After all, I was at the Pearl for girls night out which is why crop is my new best friend.

I loved those shoes and talk about getting your money’s worth.¬† Target special $9.99 and at least six or seven years use.¬† You’ll have to imagine my surprise when during my recent shoe shopping experience, I came across Rothy’s by recommendation of a friend.

Wait! What fresh hell is this?¬† You can purchase Rothy’s¬†in-store only¬†if¬†you¬†live in San Francisco. Their only retail location is located on Fillmore Street. For the rest of us,¬†Rothy’s¬†are only available for¬†purchase¬†online at¬†Rothys.com.¬† Plus they’re freaking expensive to boot (pun intended but I don’t think they make boots, only flats, loafers, or sneakers).¬† Shoes made from old water bottle destined for the landfill prior to being swept into shoe factory stardom.

Ah, now I get it!¬† Good for the Earth = expensive.¬† And now with the thought of being a do-gooder, I am hooked.¬† Starting for the low, low price of $125.¬† Why do I think there’s a bridge someone wants to sell me?

As always, more to come.
