Broke-Ass Porn: 99 Cent Stores


God damn this is sexy!

By nature, being a broke-ass can be quite limiting, especially when it comes to buying things you actually need.  For example, as much you may want one of those amazing looking Dyson vacuum cleaners for your house, you end up getting the used $25 one from the Salvadorian junk shop on 24th St.

And that’s why 99 cent stores are this week’s Broke-Ass Porn.  There’s something amazingly sexy about being able to walk into a place and say to yourself, “Holy shit!  I can afford everything in here!”  It’s like suddenly being transformed into Jay-Z for 20 minutes.  I think from now on, I’m only going to buy people’s birthday presents at 99 cent stores, and it’s gonna awesome.  My buddy’s birthday is coming up and I’ve decided to get him a hammer, some nail clippers, a highly flammable stuffed animal, and a twelve pack of toilet paper.  Why?  Because it’ll only cost me $5 and it’s all useful stuff.  Do think they do gift wrapping?

    This is true. We all know that we love 99 cent stores. The question is, where are they? What are the good ones? The fact that getting things for a dollar is sweet does not make big news.
