It starts out so innocently. Research for Clarks metallic toe flatties - are mine still available so that I can link them to posts?
I had to scroll through every single women's shoe and boot page to ascertain that. Oh dear what a shame. But sadly no, the metallic flatties sadly are no longer available.
But these are
And these comfy babes
How about these cosy boots?
Or more dressy shoes?
And these I love!
Well, I was then quickly distracted from my original task and was now on a full-blown shoe hunt, so I reined myself in a bit. I drafted up a post so that I could show you my selection and what I'd whittled down to. And what I'd bought.
Show you my sensible process which I apply to purchases. Show you my rationale.
And in this case in hand (or foot), what I really need are grey boots. Or shoes. Grey, any footwear provided its grey. Yes, that's my whittling down and that's the brief!
So I started thinking about the grey boots and the grey heels.
Fantastic price. Available in my size, not even " low stock".
Moving on through several weeks of
research. observation. stalking, and finally, last night, I decided that I had stalked sufficiently to determine that I really needed wanted my targeted footwear.
So I went to the website. They are sold out. Both.
And so endeth today's lesson on how to save your pensioner pennies. Hold back on making purchases; eventually you will see the savers' revered message, "no longer available"!
