Sharp Dressed Man

David TennantDavid Tennant (Image via came home for the weekend, not because he wanted to see us, but because he wanted to go shopping.  He's been wearing all his jeans for a while, and they're starting to wear out and wear thin in some very bad, potentially embarrassing places.  And I think he did want to see us just a bit, too.  He hadn't been home for a couple weeks. So we picked him up Saturday evening and got to hang out with him all evening at home while he got his laundry going - another good reason for coming home.  Beth & Tim and Jason came over for a while, too, so we had the whole family together for a bit.

Then today we went shopping for jeans.  Cory found some he liked at Target.   They weren't on sale, but he liked them well enough that he got them anyway.  Hopefully they'll go on sale in the next few weeks so we can get a price adjustment.  He also got two pair he liked at Penney's.  They were on sale and we used the $10 off coupon from the front of the ad - $10 off a $25 or more purchase.  One pair was eligible for the coupon by itself, and I found some really nice bracelets to add to the other pair so it was eligible, too.  So we rang up two transactions in order to use two coupons and save $20.

Besides jeans, Cory got a nice pair of dressy boots on clearance at Kohl's.  We also went to Goodwill where he got 3 pairs of Converse shoes, two of them leather, another pair of jeans, a nice shirt, and a new suit - brown with stripes he says looks just like the suit worn by David Tennant's Doctor Who and that he has been looking for for ages.  The pants need altered a bit, but since the whole thing only cost about $10, he just couldn't pass it up.  He's going to have a nice suit for a little bit of nothing - pants, jacket, vest.

The great thing about Goodwill is that you can get all these great things, Levi jeans, Converse shoes, marmot jackets, etc. for such good prices.  Cory was especially happy with those Converse shoes, because he always wears Converse, and he usually pays about $25 for them at the outlet store.  The $25 is still a good deal compared to regular retail, but Goodwill was even better.  He looked up one pair that he got online, and they retail for $75.  $75 for shoes?  Yeah, we're too cheap for that.  These cost about $5 after all the discounts - I had a 25% off coupon, and I also got 5% off because we spent over $25.  The other two pair cost about $7 each.  It was quite exciting to find all those Converse there - and every one of them in his size!  Seriously, they must have been sitting there waiting for him.

All in all, I think the boy came out pretty good.  He's going to be looking quite sharp!
