Here goes nothing. I’ve been shopping. In my mind, there are really great reasons behind it. Okay maybe just one. But the fact that Mike and I might be seen by more than the average number of friends and family we have, ON TV, I felt like I needed a quick wardrobe update. I shopped smart of course. Sales. Coupons.
But you know how I know that the universe is watching me? When a HUGE sale happens the day after I’ve shopped online. A small part of me dies. And my wallet actually squeals a little bit. I go through a moment of questioning whether I should return and re-purchase… Or if it isn’t worth it… or if I would still qualify for free shipping. You know, important, detrimental things.
Now, it goes without saying that I shouldn’t have been shopping in the first place – and that an inconvenient, ill-timed deal wouldn’t give me heartburn if I hadn’t already spent the money. It’s also worth it to mention that sometimes I do actually get ahead of myself and should just WAIT until the sale happens to actually make the purchase. I know. I shake my head too, sometimes.
Time to embark upon my own rendition of extreme couponing. Since I clearly have a problem not shopping at all, I vow (vow may be a strong word) to ONLY shop sales, or with coupons (by the way, how do you guys pronounce that word), or with a GWP worth something serious. I mean, I’ve never really liked the cold anyways, so whose crazy idea was a spending FREEZE. I just need to spend with EASE 🙂 Here goes nothing.
