Being a Good Girl!10:07:00 pm
Yesterday was a really fun day with shopping and eating out and just good plain fun!! I followed all my shopping commandments to the T :-). I put a lot of thought into each item I selected and then surprise, surprise - returned a lot of stuff back onto the rack!!! I know, weird isn’t it!! Never happened to me before!! Also, after I let myself get over the whole ‘
’ thing, I was able to look at every single thing for what it really was, without all the marketing gimmicks. As a result, I ended up buying a few things that were not on sale!! Again, first time for me!! SALE
Here’s why I'm calling myself a good girl:
- I stuck to my list and my budget and I’m proud to say that I succeeded in staying within both
- I avoided plastic bags almost everywhere, relied on cloth and paper bags
- I avoided paying with plastic, and used cash everywhere. It really helped me stay on track.
A lot of stuff bought was for the menfolk in my family – Cub, Mr. Tiger, my brother. Here’s a sample of what I got:
I also got a sleeveless tunic from Lifestyle, a pair of black tights and some other stuff like manicure set, deos etc. I also wanted a pair of black kitten heels, but didn’t find any that I was 100% satisfied with. Might hit the shops again this week :-).
There’s just one thing I got that wasn’t on my initial list. (Ok, ok, I’m not a very good girl now :-)) It’s a pack of colorful little wooden pegs, I found them real cute and got them for Cub’s room:
So that was all I shopped for yesterday. Well within control..and I must admit, it felt really good and satisfying to know that I had exactly what I wanted and nothing more!!
