I was in a sort of slump this weekend. I was just "blah". My mother and I went to the mall and I found a pair of sexy faux snake skin sandals on sale for an incredible price. I bought them, even though I probably won't wear them for a year. The shoes brightened my mood, miraculously. Any more good shopping anecdotes?
Oh, yes.... Shopping does have a way of brightening the day, doesn't it? I don't even have to "shop big". All I have to do is go to some little store and pick up a couple pleasant items for a few dollars, and I'm happy. Of course, "big shopping", can REALLY make me happy.
I love spending hours in the bookstore!!! (Barnes & Noble is my favorite). The problem is, I rarely buy any books because I can get them cheaper on Amazon hahaha. I only buy books in store if they are a new release or the author is a favorite.
Bookstores really only make money off of me if I buy a coffee while browsing. Definitely a great place for me to go if I want to shop without spending! Any other place, I'm going to buy too much useless stuff.
All kinds of things will do it for me - books (a big one), stuff for the house (small stuff is fine; big stuff is good too ), clothes, office supplies - anything. If I buy something I really like I'm happy with it forever (but not happy enough to never buy anything else when I'm in a slump ).
I guess I just went out with Mom to try to feel better. I had no expectations. She had her own agenda and I was just tagging along. I was surprised to find a good deal. I knew I was going to look at the shoes, because I always do. I am normally disappointed.
My daughter and i love shopping, too much! Of course it makes us happy, but our husbands? That's another thing. If you have the budget, go ahead. If not, and you think it's going to help you get over a depression, think again.
I have been feeling pretty ill the last few days (cough, aches, etc....hopefully it's not the piggy flu...) anyways, I bought some Theraflu 'Warming Relief' Severe Cold & Cough medicine. I have been taking the...
I hate, I really do. Every Christmas holidays I am down with something. This year I thought I missed it. No such luck. I am down again with cold. Any suggestions? Is it a curse? Why on Christmas? I drink tons of teas,...
But i have to show that I am all fine and happy in front of my son and hubby. Its frustrating. Have you ever felt like this and then what one needs to do? It is hard to smile when actually i don even feel like reacting.
