I have a similar thought process that has prevented me from buying much-needed white undershirts for years. In my head they should cost a dollar each. I invented that number, but it feels right. At Target a 3-pack will be over $10 and that seems outrageous, so I’d keep wearing my yellow undershirts. But last weekend I was in a discount store and stumbled into 3-packs for $6. It said they were slightly imperfect and I took that as a test to weed out the weak and cowardly. Turns out the tag information printed on the shirts was just smeared a little. I can finally replace some nasty undershirts I’ve been wearing for five years.
