I get to wear jeans to my new job! I can’t tell you how excited I am by this! After wearing what I referred to as my ‘monkey-suit’ all these years, I will finally get to wear clothes that I will feel comfortable in all day. And I can wear a long sleeve shirt under my work shirt if I so desire, which I do, because I like to be warm.

I currently own 3 pairs of jeans that are suitable for work. The others are uncomfortable for bending and general moving about, we all have those jeans… I’ll be working 4 days a week for now and I only do laundry when I have a full load. Since it sounds like I’ll be getting them dirty each day I think I should live dangerously and buy another pair.

Old Navy jeans are just about the only jeans that fit me right, both my body and my budget. And they last a long time, too.  Right now they’re having a sale, 50% off jeans – what timing! I picked out a pair to try on in my size. I always try them on. I’ve been burned too many times by online orders of multiple jeans of the same style and same size and they all fit completely different. This pair fit great! I also found a black long sleeve shirt on clearance, joy! I had a coupon code from doing the survey on my last Old Navy receipt that was good for an additional 10% off my entire purchase. All in all my total was $19.13 including tax, I saved a total of $16.97.

I start my new job Tuesday 🙂
