Bargains and Burdens

...........the answer to a "Bargain Burden".
I found this designer jacket on sale at 90% off, yes you read that correctly. Regular price was $129.95, mine for $12.95. I could NOT pass it up. However, the pin stripes in it were light gray and magenta. The jacket is a dark gray. Not the easiest colors in the world to match. After a year of hanging in my closet, I found this gorgeous piece of magenta fabric and made a skirt, in less than one hour. Perfect match. The entire outfit cost less than $20. As the executive in charge of all matters of housekeeping in my home, maybe I will wear this to work tomorrow!!
