Thrifty Me-I saved $10 today!

Last week I visited the Shoe Hospital on Duckworth St. in St. John’s and the guy had no time for me. That’s right. He started to look for my shoes without listening to me. I ended up asking my question a second time “How much to get my leather shoes polished?”

“Around $10,” mumbled the young man.

I walked away from the store feeling that the price seemed more than I wanted to pay. I’m a retiree and I watch every dollar. I love bargains and I love saving money.

Today while looking for scotch tape in a bottom drawer, I came across some brown shoe polish, with a brush and cloth. So I took out my expensive Naot shoes and spent 15 minutes, rubbing on the polish and brushing until my shoe looked great. Take a look..
