Shop with Reason, Not Abandon.

My husband came up with a new guideline, as I was about to embark on a trip to Uber-Quaint Shopping Village: shop with reason, not abandon. Well, I did shop with reason. I saw a beautiful metal dragonfly sculpture that would look awesome above our headboard, a great necklace unlike any that I have, and lots of floppy summer hats. I wanted them all, even the summery cowboy hats. A new hat for every day! Oh, and that cute wristlet in the shape of a flower. Did I mention I also love scarves? Tried plenty on.

Total spent: $0. Victory!

      Thanks! It was strange shopping with such a different mindset, but it wasn’t difficult and I had fun browsing!

    Love it. I wonder if this–writing down what you try on and wanted but didn’t buy– is a good tactic for now, since it enables you to feel some of the euphoria without actually doing damage…
