Intervention

I need help.

I can't seem to say No to a good bargain when it comes to getting something I need to get.  I try not to buy frivolously or without purpose as we just don't have the kind of funds to allow for that kind of shopping; generally I shop with a mission, a purpose, a specific item(s) in mind.

But this week... this week, I've really pushed it.

On MONDAY I bought Lovie this piano from Leap Frog:



I couldn't NOT buy it. It was on clearance through Leap Frog, and I had a 25% off coupon on top of that! My reasoning for buying without a purpose: I've been noticing the past couple weeks how Lovie seems to really gravitate and enjoy playing with toys she can manipulate into making noise so when I saw this deal, I couldn't resist.

Then on TUESDAY, I bought this toaster from Crate and Barrel:



But it's not for our household. It's for the daughter of a friend (how the fuck old am I that I can say that... that I was invited to the wedding of a friend's daughter?!? DEAR GOD!) whose wedding we can't attend next weekend because we'll be in the midst of moving.  This, too, was on sale (and on their registry) so Yay.

Yesterday/WEDENSDAY I finally made a purchase I've been wanting to do for some time now, but just couldn't justify it- until now. I got these for Lovie from shoes.com:



And I can't wait to get them and slap them onto her itty bitty feet!  They were on sale, plus I had a coupon for 30% off, plus free S&H. How could I resist?!? I also ordered a pair of orange CROC-like shoes for next summer for a whopping $5.

And today/THURSDAY... today I've spent more than I have all week when I purchased a ton of clothes from OldNavy.com:



But again, I couldn't pass up the deal... and to help justify the purchase, I only bought Lovie items that were already on sale (the stuff for myself wasn't on sale- boo!).

I need help. If I continue to buy like this, I'm going to be in DEEP trouble.

But hey, at least Lovie'll look cute as ever! ; )

  1. Well if it's a good deal- then it's a good deal! I mean it would be like a sin to pass up deals that good....right? LOL!

  2. It's hard to pass up a good deal. I got that Old Navy email this morning and had to delete it right away. I don't think the electric company will accept pictures of Pie in new clothes as payment, for some crazy reason!

  5. Hah! I'm the same way. I usually go to the store on a mission and end up buying something I had no intention of buying.
