I Need New Boots

Yes, you read that right. All of this clunking has made me look at my beloved Lowas that are about 6 years old. They are falling apart. And my back-up pair of boots isn't very comfortable. (I got those back-ups for about $20 at an REI garage sale two years ago. Couldn't beat the price...)

Right now, REI members get 20% off one regular-priced item. And I have a whopping $5 in REI dividends that I can apply. I really want a new pair of Lowa hikers. These are the only boots I've found in recent years that are wide enough for my feet. And considering how much I wear them, six years is a good life. They retail at $190. So I could get them for around $150. Can I afford this on my miniscule stipend?

I have til March 29 to figure this out.
