Sometimes being average ain't so good . . .
. . . Or is it?
According to WikiAnswers the average women's UK shoe size is 5 and getting bigger. So it makes sense that shoes in size 5 and 6 are the most likely to go first when the sales hit the shops. That is why I, being in the average shoe size of the UK, struggle to pick up bargains unless I'm first through the door.
Next launched their sale last week, so I took a casual browse in my local store to see what possible shoe bargains I might find. These lizard-look blue shoes, reduced to £15, took my fancy. Unfortunately only size 3 and 4 were left on the shelf, so no purchase could be made. I'm not even going to look at the online site, I'd honestly be tempted to buy the shoes and other items I don't really need just to justify the added delivery charge.
Perhaps that's not a bad thing, having limited choices on what I can buy, does mean that I spend less and that can't be all that bad can it?
