I nearly bought a pair of Levi jeans online tonight, having first checked to see whether there is a Levi Strauss shop in Bournemouth (there is) when I go away for the Feast this Autumn.
Mind, since I am asking the Church for financial assistance this year, I can hardly justify £100 on a pair of jeans either now or in October.
Then I thought to check how many jeans I own. I had 5 pairs already! I tried them on for size. 3 no longer fit, but 2 are in perfectly good condition. And who really needs more than 2 pairs? So my "little problem" has been solved. I now have 2 good pairs of jeans to wear.
Jeans use up a lot of water and dye in their manufacture too. The less we consume the better off we'll all be!
