I am trying so so so hard to be good and not to buy stuff right now. I know we won't be working for a whole MONTH so we need to be frugal. But it's haaaarddd because I like stufffff and I LOVE a good deal.
So. I bought stuff today. But I will try to justify it right.... NOW!
First purchase doesn't even NEED to be justified because it's FREE!
Organix Tea Tree Mint Shampoo! It came with a free "try me for free!" rebate, so I decided to take them up on their offer. I realize I had to pay $6.99 at the time of purchase, but as soon as I got back to work (I often shop during lunch) I put the rebate in the mail. I should get my rebate in the next month or so. Freeee! And smells really minty and fresh, which is nice.
Okay. Not too bad so far, right?
I went to Kmart on my lunch, thinking 'I'll just go see what's on sale.' Well. Almost the whole STORE is on sale. All Women's Fall and Winter clothes are $3.99 or less. SER.I.OUS.LY.
I started thinking.... "Jessica, you will be in Wyoming in just a little over a month. It is cold in Wyoming. And even when it's warm, it gets cold at night. Perhaps just take a little look at the sweater selection..."
I came away with these:
I realize that three of them are grey, yes. But they are different shades of grey, aren't they? Why yes, they are. And they are different. Different detailing, different silhouettes, DIFFERENT I TELL YOU!
And I have a huge love for argyle. And with this sweater and my white tulip skirt and a pair of flats I will look so cute and preppy and could maybe pass for Hermione Granger. True. Story.
These five sweaters came to $21 with tax, and I got a free Slushee! No lie!
So really. How could I pass that up? What if I got really really cold in Wyoming and had to get a sweater and the only one on sale was $20???? WELL I GUESS I HAVE SAVED MYSELF FROM THAT TERRIBLE FATE!
Now the only question is whether I tell Bryan or just start wearing these tops and seeing if he notices....
