I Went Shopping Today

samkarenFebruary 9, 2013

I decided it was high time I had a "me" day so this morning I went to Goodwill for their $1.23 sale. I bought myself 5 new skirts and 7 tops. Also bought a few misc things I needed. I spent a total of $22 and I thought I got a great deal. Came home and tried on everything and I just felt good about myself.

Took a nice long nap....made dinner...had a piece of chocolate and made myself a wine spritzer.

It was nice just doing whatever I wanted to do today.

Wonderful. I love going to thrift shops. It really lifts your spirits to find something fun for practically no money. Happy, happy, happy.

Fantastic!

The ARC here had a .99cent sale on sweaters and long sleeved shirts. I got a Ralph Lauren knit shirt and DH got one by Banana Republic....a little white bear holding a BIG valentine for .50cents! I had a great shopping day too!

Finding deals makes me feel like I've accomplished something....weird huh? :0)

What a fun time. I like those kind of lazy meandering me days and get so few of them. Good for you for deciding you needed one and then taking it.

Thanks everyone. It did make me feel good. Not that I needed the extra clothes but at least something new lifted my spirits.

Last week I went to Walmart for groceries and saw the bedspread that DH and I had. I decided to buy one because it is lightweight but warm....got a different color though. Bought matching pillowcases as well. Then I went to Joann Fabrics and bought yarn. I am knitting a new afghan for me bed.

Sometimes it just the little things that will perk me up.

When my ex and I first split up I went out and bought a frilly, white lacy duvet and shams for the bed, as feminine as I could find. To be honest I got sick of them pretty quickly because I am not a frilly, lacy kind of person, but my bed and I needed a fresh start! You're right -- it's the little things.

Sam, aren't all the "new things" in life just great? :)

I love them. Loved hearing about your bargains. I haven't seen any that low... but do shop at goodwill for most of my clothes.

It's just a great place... with clothing that is pre washed, pre shrunk, and usually the colors no longer run. :)
