Still in a state of shock over the info we had this morning.
The BIG mark up on movie food….as if we didn’t already know this.
But to see the actual numbers.
Let’s say a large bucket of popcorn sells for $8. It costs the movie theaters 90 cents.
A large soda sells for what? $6. It costs them 51 cents…and that covers the cup, lid and straw.
And a box of candy sells for what? $4.25…it costs the movie theater around $2.
So when I go to the movies I start with $20. The ticket is usually 10-50…and then with my small popcorn and medium coke zero at 9:50…there goes my $20.
I have a friend who years ago worked for one of the big fast food chains in the accounting department. He would never order an iced tea when we’d go to dinner and one time I asked him why. He said he couldn’t because he always remembered it cost 2 cents for that iced tea yet they sold it for $3.
Just what is your rule about getting rid of your old clothes?
My daughter Victoria tries to get rid of something every time she buys something new…so one comes in…one goes out.
She’s supposed to do it with shoes too. I’m not sure she really does…LOL!!
If you saw my closets and drawers you know I don’t do this so we will just move on…
So see if you agree with these.
We mentioned them this morning.
You are to get rid of clothes that are stained, smell old, damaged beyond repair…like Sam’s shirts that are frayed at the elbow.
If you were out shopping right now, would you buy it? No ..it goes!!!
It doesn’t convey the message you want. No..I don’t want to look like a frump!!!
You equate it with bad memories.
It’s not trendy anymore.
You keep trying it on…but never go out of the house with it on.
It’s totally stretched out or pilled….which isn’t that far from damaged beyond repair.
And when are we going shopping to replace all of that stuff you’re giving away?
