Shopping rules . . .

I dislike clothes shopping, so I follow three basic rules to keep me away from the stores as much as possible:

Rule #1:  When I find an article of clothing that fits me well, I buy it in as many colors as are available (that are flattering to my coloring, of course, you won't find me buying anything orange . . . ). 

Rule #2:  I stick to the classics and avoid fads so very little goes out of style.

Rule #3:  I try to buy good quality stuff, and take excellent care of it to stretch its life.


Today's 60% off sale was a delightful little bonus . . . Oh, wait!  There was a second bonus:  I've gone down a size!  Not bad . . . not bad at all . . .

So, what's your shopping secret . . . ?

Do you have a place where I can sign up to get an e-mail when you post? That is the best option for me. Shopping rules? If I like it, it fits WELL, and the right color I usually get it. I LOVE marshalls.
