MILWAUKEE -- The other morning, I told a woman at the gym about my $5 dress from Gap. I wasn't wearing it at the time. The dress just came up in conversation.
She shot out an arm for a high five.
I wear cheap on my sleeve. I also keep it in the dining room, where we eat at a Knoll conference table I scored for $50. The living room boasts a vintage Westnofa lounge chair purchased for $40, and a floor model lamp picked up from Pottery Barn for less than half its original price.
