Ah, marketing professionals are so clever. Here's my "favorite" latest ad:
"At XXX, I can pull together outfits that tug at my heartstrings, not my purse strings."
Advertised is an outfit comprised of blouse, jeans, and purse for a total of $97.97. For nearly a $100, you don't even get the earrings, necklace, or shoes included. Now that's a real steal right there. No sarcasm. Really. I believe that.
Shop responsibly! This means being thoughtful about what you buy, how much you buy (or how much is wasted), who you buy it from, and how much time and money you spend buying it.
