I usually don't buy on impulse, but last Friday the inner impulse shopper reared its head.
It's been a while since I've hit sample sales. On Friday I actually needed a very particular set of items, and I knew where to find them. That particular showroom was usually open for just about every sample sale I went to, so I figured my odds are pretty good. But of course, it was not to be on this trip.
Now what do I do? I was already there, so I may as well look around.
That's a dangerous train of thought, which is why I left most my cash at home. Sure, I can indulge in a few cheapies, but it's easy to go overboard. Limiting the amount of cash I carry is the best line of defense.
I ended up getting 2 things--this t-shirt and a workout top. The t-shirt is totally an impulse buy. I thought it was really cute on sight, and it was $5, so why not? I had a change of heart when I got home, but I like it again when I wore it today:
It's a quirky little t-shirt, not something I can find very easily. Wearing it today reminds me that one of my favorite tees (in the same kind of red) has gone MIA. I have to track it down.
It's been really hot around here. I think I'll wear my workout top tomorrow--I doubt that anyone will be around at school, so I can wear whatever I want. That one is actually a sensible buy--I don't have very many workout tops, just some ratty old t-shirts. Also $5. Can't beat that.
I also came across some really cute leather shoes for $20, which is a really good price. Good thing my wallet was just a few dollars shy--do I really need another pair of shoes? The answer is no. I ended up putting that money to good use by buying some jewelry findings. Now that's a good investment.
