Feeling thrifty is a lot like feeling lucky. I have compared the rifling through racks of forgotten clothing as the thrill of the chase. I take it back. I think it may be more comparable to gambling. The flashing lights of the Vegas slot machines do nothing for me. But show me rows of unique clothing that can be purchased with nothing but spare change and my pulse quickens.
What treasure might I find? With the shifting of just one more hanger, the detailed scan of one more row, the visit to one more store, the compulsion is easy.
