Here’s a handy example of when being cheap gets ridiculous: I have been cutting my family’s hair for well over ten years. Not often, you understand, but when someone needs a haircut, I’m the barber. Now. Do you think that I have owned a hair-cutting cape for all of that time?
Of course not. I just bought a cape last month. It cost me all of $12. I’m really not sure what I was waiting for. Maybe I thought everyone was enjoying being covered with hair and/or suffocated by trash bags while I tried to cover them up somehow…?
All of this is to say: I bought the cape at Sally’s Beauty Supply, after waiting all this time, and of course today I find a printable coupon for 15% off through the end of February. That, my friends, is called Murphy’s Law. But my stupidity and poor luck may be your gain—go forth and save.
