Yeah, you heard me right. Don’t be a cheapskate. I learned that lesson the hard way recently.
Many of you have seen me gimping around for a few weeks now. I’ve hurt my foot and am trying to nurse it back. The heal, actually.
You see, I’m a bit cheap, especially when it comes to myself. When it comes to friends, I can be quite lavish. I don’t mind spending on friends. But on myself, I generally go cheap. My favorite brand is “For Sale”. 🙂
And that is where I got myself in trouble a couple months ago.
The shoes that I had been wearing finally wore out. No, I couldn’t glue them any more. The soles were peeling and the heels wouldn’t stay on. So I threw the shoes away as soon as I found a cheap pair at Walmart. Now, I’m not trying to diss Walmart; however, they do not exactly have shoes that I should be wearing. Especially being a “petite”. I need shoes that are going to hold my feet well. But, that is not what I purchased. I purchased a cheap pair of shoes and wore them for a few weeks.
Walking around without adequate support, I stretched and pulled some of my foot muscles and am paying the price. I switched to a good pair of walking shoes about a week and a half ago and am beginning to feel better. I will probably have a little way to go yet; however, I think I am on the mend.
There are some things that a person just should not skimp on. For me, shoes are now high on that list.
