Shopping 101 — Six Word Saturday
(my six words)
Mrs. Jim is shopping today. Most all clothing items under $100 are sales tax (8.25%) free. So are school supply items under $100. I guess a used laptop might sell for that. So would a pencil sharpener for sure. There is no total limit, just per each item. This happens every year just before school starts.
My last six words as she pulled out of the driveway:
"If you can't decide, buy it."
Mrs. Jim is a very frugal shopper. If she can't decide usually she doesn't buy it. Then when she gets home she wishes a little that she had bought the whatever. So now she needs some new things.
The last I talked with her she was in Macy's.I am going out now. Adi needs a new collar. I might buy myself a pair of training shoes and a pair of golfing shorts.

Copenhagen looks like a pretty amazing place. Good pictures - thanks for posting them.
I would have bought that plate.
Your pics of Copenhagen brought back wonderful memories of my own overland trip throughout Scandinavia (and E Europe!)- I recall I bought a great teak salad bowl & servers in a gorgeous shop on one of the main streets! (Still very much in use here!)
Glad you had a good trip! And yes, I'd have bought that plate too!
Wishing you & yr wife a lovely weekend,
Lola & Nora:)
PS yes, lovely rendition to First Lady!
Seriously, tax free. Man I wish they would do that up here, it would save me 13% on what you mentioned. That is a pretty great idea actually.
I swung by via Six Word Saturday. I hope Mrs. Jim had fun and got some good bargains!
Good pictures...I enjoyed them.

I hope Mrs. Jim found some bargains. Tax free is great! It's the perfect time to get something you really need.
I can't believe Baby KP has grown enough to wave already!! Seems like she was just born. My how the times get by!
Hope you are having a great weekend!
