Always be proud of what you have. My wife made me get the GC string club card a few years ago. Every month at some point they have either Ernie Ball or D’addario Strings on sale 3/$10. That’s $5 off with the card so I paid $5 for three sets of strings I like. The 12 packs of electric and acoustic strings were gifts. Plus I also used my string club card to buy all the banjo and mandolin strings for almost nothing. I’m a big cheapskate when I can be.
