No Shopping On Snow Days
On Saturday the high was 34 and snowing all day. On Monday the high is supposed to be 68! It will be beautiful tomorrow and I have to go back to work. This is crazy weather but at least it kept me away from the stores. Bad for the stores, good for my wallet. Everything I see on TV, commercials and news stories, tells me to go shopping and get those GREAT DEALS! Sometimes I feel like I am missing a great opportunity. But then I check my list, the list I keep of things I am looking for if they are a great price. There are only 3 things on my list: a wallet, knit hat, and gel insoles for my shoes. That is all that I want right now. No electronics, no video games, no new clothes. Do I really need to waste my time and money combing through clearance racks? I am sure I would spend a lot more money if I was standing in front of tempting "deals". Next weekend I will get possession of my rental house again and I am sure I will need to buy a few things to spruce it up. It is better that I stay away from the stores now so that I will have money to spend on things I NEED for the house later on. At least, that is my plan.
