The Crazy Plot Of Cheap Or Not!

The cat is as cheap as can be. No need for big fancy toys for me. Just give me the box that it was in and I'm quite happy at my bin. Get where this is going? On with my flowing.

Cheap it is.
A nasty biz.
You can't buy cheap.
Not in any heap.

It will be no fun.
Not worth a run.
Hell, not worth a thing.
Not even a fling.

Spend that dough.
High not low.
Spend it all.
Get art for the wall.

Spare no expense.
Don't be dense.
Get the very best.
It always passes the test.

Cheap won't thrill.
Your wallet may fill,
But that will be it.
Don't buy cheap shit.

Screw the wallet.
Go and call it.
Call the expensive place.
Let go of your cheap embrace.

Purse is that same.
Filling it is lame.
Don't go buying cheap.
Dig down nice and deep.

Whip out that card.
It isn't so hard.
Buy the best around.
Did you hear that sound?

The sound of the best.
You ignored the rest.
You bought the top dog.
Whoops, still eats a brown log.

But it was tops.
Who cares if it flops.
Top of the pile.
The best by a mile.

The cat knows a nut that always needs the best. He's in debt worse than the rest. Yeah, that is sure the way to be for things like TP. You can't go cheap there. Can hurt the butt crack at ones lair. Always the expensive one are you for everything at your zoo? Give the cat a box and some grass and I'm a happy little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

    Cheap doesn't last, quality sought
    Kind to the wallet
    But getting trinkets
    Only realized after being bought

  3. The saying "Cheap is Nasty" is not always true, If I can find a cheap bargain I'll get it.

  5. I try to be cheap on most things
    But some just has to be the best
    Like certain types of food
    Are better than the rest.

  7. We should all be as easy to please as a cat.
    They're happy with good food, tasty treats, and chasing a rat.
    No credit cards to put them in debt.
    Just an occasional trip to the vet.

  11. I see so many people on Facebook posting about the brand new car they got, or the hot tub they got, or some other ridiculous, expensive thing, while making less than even I do, and I laugh, knowing that they'll be in debt for the rest of their lives... And then I cry, knowing that despite me being incredibly cheap, I'm right there with them. With luck, maybe I'll have these school loans paid off just before I die!

  12. i def dont get caught up in having to have and i guess that makes me cheap, but reap-ing the benefits of all the fancy new glitz is a load of shlitz. if it works, dont replace it, reuse what you can - and repurpose the old to save a bit of the land.

  16. You know what, kids are the same way. Toddlers would rather play with the box, ribbons and wrapping paper than the actual present. I don't buy the best, the store brands are just as good.

  17. No, no, no, I'm not cheap! I prefer to think of it as... thrifty. And sensible. For example, my car is a 1999 model, but it still looks great and runs great, so why in the world would I want a NEW one? (My hubby keeps trying to convince me I do, but... I don't!) We don't "need" the top of the line or the best of the best. "Good enough" is good enough for me. Except for food and toilet paper. Going is and, um, coming out, I prefer quality. :)

  21. Never go cheap on the toilet paper or deodorant. For everything else, I'll take the least expensive item I can find.

  22. Depends on what I am buying, whether it will be cheap or not. I don't overspend, I was never into the newest greatest thing, if mine is still working why buy another?

  24. I do a lot of shopping at the dollar stores, but I've learned that, while some items are just as good when found there, there are some you should avoid. Never buy a $1.00 can opener, for example. A drop of water will rust it like nobody's business!

  25. I rarely shop
    I'm what you'd call a shopping flop
    Except when Angie sees a suit
    She's somewhat of a brute
    Forcing me to buy at least two
    So no food for Scooby Blue
    Good thing that's only once a year
    70% off too making me cheer
    But still I'm a shopping flop
    Good thing I don't want to shop
