Good Luck Charm: discount, faulty, compose, half, cabbage

She knew why she was drawn to discount stores. It had to do with growing up on the wrong side of the tracks. Buying something that was considered faulty for half price was what she had grown to know as a good deal. It's how her family had survived the local economic depression. Cabbage for dinner was the norm. And chicken broth. She stood there, looking at this new man in her life, trying to compose her thoughts and explain why the silly key chain she had carried since she was a child was the her good luck charm.

  1. That paragraph is full of too many thoughts. I get it, I think but it feels jumbled.

    The dinner, the half price and the key chain seem to be different thoughts although inter connected.
