I don't have that many recent purchases to be ashamed of, but there defiantly are a few so I thought what the heck, I should just continue to embarrass myself and tell everyone about them!
When Jacquie told me about the dress she ordered on-line for Travis's Christmas party, I thought "hey, I should do that!" (shame on you Jac, you know I have a problem!) jk :)
So I went and picked one out and against my better judgement, I bought it knowing I'd have to lie to Kirk for a short time about the cost for his own sake. (okay for mine, I get the "talk" a lot.) Today he saw the Visa bill and was confused because the price I gave him was the american price without the shipping cost, so basically it had almost doubled when converted to canadian. Opps.. and the worst part is that I bought it to ware to Kirks work party tomorrow night and it hasn't arrived yet. So I had to go to the mall today and look for another dress and I found one on sale for 29.99$ marked down from 100.
Apparently I love throwing money away.
This is the dress I ordered from Shabby Apple.
That reminds me of the time when I got cash back at the self-checkout while I was buying some things from Wal-mart, and forgot to take the money when I left. I just left it there!!
I still feel sick about that.
The next mistake was a result of my excitement for booking the cruise we're going on next month. Right away I was on E-bay looking for sandals to buy and I saw a cute pair of sketchers that were cheep so I bought them. But then I found pair of Ugg's that I had to have, again against my better judgement because they were not cheep. I thought for sure I was going to get outbid... but I didn't so now I have two pairs of sandals, and I'm not even sure you can get the Uggs wet and that wouldn't exactly be practical. Maybe if they weren't both brown I could get away with it, but they are so I told Kirk I bought us each a pair. There's no way I'm going to let him have my uggs though so I'm probably in for another chat that I'm not looking forward to. I honestly can't blame him for being upset sometimes though, can you?
The Sketchers and the Uggs
I'm not done buying things unfortunately, I still have to find another bathing suit and a beach bag for the trip and I'll probably think of even more things before then.
I think I need someone who's "financially conscious" to give me some advise. Actually, just checking with Kirk before I buy things would probably work too.
