Last month I wrote about saving money by shopping for second-hand clothes. Today, in a nearby business park, our neighborhood used-clothing shop had a warehouse sale. Everything was a buck (except coats, which were two bucks). Better yet, there was an all-you-can-stuff bin — for $2, you could fill a garbage bag with all sorts of less-than-desirable clothes.

I bought a nice shirt and a nice pair of slacks for $1 a piece. I also filled a $2 bag, including a nice pair of denim pants in just my size. (Most of the all-you-can-stuff clothes are substandard, though: ugly or damaged. I will use these for lounging around the house or for working in the yard.)

Not bad for $4 and half an hour.
