Today, it was men’s Wrangler shorts.
Lately, the store has been putting racks of clearance spring and summer clothing outside the front doors, but it has been mostly Kmart brand women’s clothes at a 50 percent discount. Yesterday, I noticed that the clothes had dropped to $.99 each, but it was still all women’s styles. As I walked past the racks today, the name “Wrangler” jumped out at me, and upon closer examination, I noticed that they were men’s shorts, so I grabbed a couple of pairs to price inside to make sure they were actually $.99 as advertised on the sign.
I walked inside the store, set off the shoplifting alarm, and headed to the nearest price scanner. Both pairs scanned at $.99, and after a quick, but really unnecessary check of Ebay completed listings, I grabbed a buggy (or a shopping cart for all my non-Southern readers) and headed back outside.

All told, I purchased 42 pairs of shorts, and spent a whopping $44.99. According to the receipt, I saved $652.70, which I hope will be my actual profit from this spur of the moment shopping trip.
