a wallet

Sometimes, you got to indulge yourself with something for yourself.
My recent purchase:

Picard walletPicard walletPicard wallet

A new wallet to replace my old (bulky) one. I am sure Rev. Dr. Wu Yi would approve this purchase.

Don has an amazing wallet that is very secure.

(to Don: Antony is poor. This wallet was bought under discount.)

Of course, even your wallet has a brand name on it.
I am surprised that you would call my wallet "amazing". It is a homemade duct tape wallet, and you seem to hate both duct tape and homemade things in general.

Hi Ant,
How much did this wallet cost you under discount?
Cheers,
Sam.

Don,
Yours has an amazing feature that prevents data stealing, remember?
Sam,
Well, I bought two different wallets at the same time (one for Laurent). They were both less than $100 each (before discount) to start with, hence, the wallet was not that expensive.

"Less than $100"? Unless it was "less than $10" too, I would say you overpaid for something like a wallet.
I did some math and it cost me about three cents to make my wallet.

According to my receipt, my was below $65 (AUD).
They don't sell a wallet for less than $10 in a department store. Told you that I don't get white American boy's discounted prices.

It is not "white American boy's discounted prices". I got my duct tape and aluminum foil from a dollar store, not a fancy department store. The exact prices were $2.00 for 50 ft^2 of foil and $0.50 for 20 yards of duct tape. (Sorry we don't use the proper metric system, but those numbers don't convert nicely.)

Still, yours is very secure.

And you opted for "expensive and flashy" over "secure".
Posted by Don_HH2K on 2 October 2009 1:04 PM.
The wallet was not that expensive, if you compare to the range offered in that department store. It was bought with 20% off. Also, you got to keep a basic appearance, particularly for those dark skinned people like me.

You don't need to shop exclusively at expensive department stores, you know. Shopping at a cheap store, or (although I know you would never do it) making something yourself is a perfectly good option.
Posted by Don_HH2K on 2 October 2009 1:26 PM.
I usually buy items when they are in discount. I also do window shopping at cheap two dollar shops sometimes, just that I don't usually buy things from there.
Of course, I made a lot of things before, just that I wasn't familiar with your beloved 'duct tape'.
