Reformed Spender

April 30th, 2007 at 01:03 pm


Here is a shareable observation:

I'm in the process of becoming a reformed spender. We had my daughter's Communion this past weekend and I had numerous transactions: 2 grocery stores, 3 clothing/shoe store, party outlet store, dollar store, Michael's twice.

I'd much prefer one big transaction rather than all these small ones. I think it has something to do with quantity versus quality? I really don't know why I had this random thought.

And in the process of shopping for clothes for myself (I shop with four children) I buy things take hem home and try them on - of my purchase I kept two items totaling $74. The other items are going back TODAY (old me would drive around with the in the car).

And in my Michael's purchase I have about $10.00 in items I didn't need for my daughter's T-shirt we made. BACK THOSE GO.

Not only do I not want a lot of transactions, I don't want to keep those unused items for a time I might need them. Michaels IS only 3 miles away. And my last two dresses which I replaced lasted about five years.

Am I on my way to reformation?

    I was just thinking today about how much more I take things back than I used to. Makes me think twice about what I buy, too.

    You're doing great! I love to return items that we don't use or really don't NEED. I like to add the amounts back into my checkbook. Makes me feel like bonus money or something. LOL

    BTW, you mentioned on my blog that you had items to list on eBay. I wish I lived close enough to help you out. Even just getting you started. If I can be of any help at all, just let me know!
