CD, Thank you for sharing this wonderful piece of CNF with Age of Empathy! I had a hangup on buying used shoes ... until I didn't. Now, I have beautiful used cowgirl boots and some fancy brand sandals (don't remember which) both scored off of Poshmark.

I really enjoy visiting my local "upscale" thrift shop and searching for finds. I also appreciate your 12 pairs of shoes limit. It's easy to get carried away!

And, I love your candidness in writing about your family and financial situation. Good for you for making choices with your heart! 🤗
