Under my skin

November 24th, 2006 at 08:10 pm

OK, this site, more to the point, these blogs, are getting under my skin. I went out this morning to see the Black Friday deals b/c my little sister wanted to go. I was picky, way more critical of the prices, and impatient of stores with long lines, as in, I didn't feel it was worth it to wait on them. I only picked up two pairs of sweatpants and a glove and scarf set, both of which were reasonably priced to begin with, and marked down. When one of the sweatpants turned out to not be discounted, I said, well, then I don't want it! A lot of what I looked at, I thought to myself, yes, but I can probably get one at a thrift store, I just have to find one. I'm still willing to spend way more on things that I'm sure many others are, but I do see an improvement.
The biggest influence, I have to say, has been reading LRJohnson's blog. Seeing how little she spends, and how much she gets for her money has been such a big inspiration. Thanks everyone!

    And remember that someday when your blog gets long enough, yours will be an inspiration to others and yourself.

    I hope the scarf and glove set is wonderful! A great thing about being picky about what we buy, is that when we commit, we can love the purchase and not worry about buyer's remorse! I'm glad my thoughts on spending, and not spending, have helped you think clearly about your spending and not spending.
