Yesterday I stopped by Target to pick up a few workout t-shirts and made an interesting discovery. I walked over to the Jr. section and found a ton of cute shirts for $5 a piece. Wow! I hit the jack-pot, what a blessing I thought. So of course I had to grab five of them in different colors and all in a size x-large. I had the biggest smile on my face not because of the size but because of the cost.
Since I am a curious person I decided to check out the price of the same t-shirt in WW section. In comparison, the same shirt in the larger sizes were selling for $14.99 per piece. I have to admit that I was a little shock about the cost. So, out comes the phone calculator to find out Target punishment for the fat folks. The cost difference was: Jr. size -5 shirts + Calif. taxes = $27.19 and WW size @ $14.99 + Calif. taxes = $81.51 so by reducing my weight I saved a whopping $54.32. This is a huge awareness and one of many reasons to continue on my journey to a healthier and thinner me. In my opinion Target is not a good friend to obese folks when it comes to clothes.
My question of the day: Have you notice a reduction in clothing cost since you have reduced your waistline?
Lazy Girl update: Yes, I had the talk and I will post the outcome tonight or tomorrow morning. It's was a really good conversation and a break through for her.
Have a wonder day!
