WORDS FOR WEDNESDAY - Maud Huston, my grandmother

One of the fondest memories I have from my childhood are visits to my grandmother's house in the summer. Not only were we treated with wonderful visits, but she would take us to the mall and let us pick out an outfit (or two), a book from the bookstore and then granddaddy would treat us to an ice cream from Dairy Queen. Ah, those were the days.

Today's Words for Wednesday are from my grandmother - on her shopping secrets. They have stayed with me and I have passed them on to my own daughters.

"Don't buy the first thing you find. Shop around. That way if you find something later in the day, you save yourself the trouble of having to return the first item."

"If you find something you love, buy it in every color."

"If you don't buy something you love, and find yourself thinging about it the next day - go buy it, no matter what the cost."
