No matter how shitty a shoe that AE makes, I find them very wearable. Although I am not a fan of the Tupelo sole and the fact that it is a feather welt. I have come to like the shoe. Bellevue is certainly not a Dundee but the upper is great and it handles crappy weather well. Even the Wooster Street is pretty good and there is nothing that I like about that POS. But since I stripped it, it works. But give me an old McTavish, MacNeil, or any old school welt and I am in Heaven.

Local store had Toilet paper (limit 1 package per customer) but EVERY store in my area, from local retailer to Wal*Mart was out of flour of all things. Guess a lot of people staying home baking. The things stores are out of is rather odd, who would have ever expected a shortage of Quinoa?
I did. That's why I've got 36 pounds of organic quinoa in my pantry :crackup:

Out for a drive in the country this afternoon. It's easy to practice social distancing at 30 mph. Blue CXL LWBs for the trip. And who needs Quinoa when a bag of Oreos are in reach?

At least as far back as I remember off-hand, the mark-down had been nothing for shell during the anniversary sale but recently they started doing 15% off. Don't think I've seen it more than that. One Christmas/New Year they did like $200 off I think?
yeah the standard markdown for the anniversary sale and RDA is 15% on shell. Sometimes they don't discount shell at all and sometimes a model will be more than 15% off but that is the general rule.

given the economic uncertainty my fingers are crossed for a bigger discount to boost sales

Well.....I guess all bets are off now. The Don just announced extension of the guidelines until April 30th. That will span the entire length of the standard AE anniversary sale. Now I guess we'll have to wait and see what they decide to do.

I looked this up yesterday when you commented it, I'm confused by it, I may have to actually read how it works other than look at pictures, either way we have bidet's in both bathrooms at home 👍
Today I learned about something new... that being said, I have been considering a bidet around here for some time.

They appreciate that. Buy from an SA so they get a cut, or order online so that corporate gets a larger cut of the sale. Hmm... That's a tough one...
Unfortunately the $75 coupon induced me to buy at least one shoe from the website. Still have my eye on an olive PA, which I have every intention to wait until the stores re-open before purchasing. Do we know how much of a cut the SA gets from purchases?

Ah, a true American still exists! In college I used to down whole packages of Oreos in one sitting. Not my proudest moments... but Oreos can be a part of a healthy diet. Just not like that.
(No dig on quinoa eaters, though I prefer freekeh myself)

Speaking of true Americans, I am supposed to be working from home this weekend, but took this opportunity to instead play some Doom Eternal for pretty much the whole day. While wearing appropriate footwear, of course.

Seriously 36lbs????? I managed to find a 3 lb bag at another store, we are set for a while. I happen to like quinoa as an alternative to rice or potatoes, sometimes.
Yep 3x 12 pound bags. Since a majority of my nearby family are not quite taking this whole things seriously I bought enough of everything that I'd be able to spare some for them if needed.

Good buy, quinoa is an awesome grain and keeps damn near forever as near as I can tell.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
