Have you ever tried hard NOT to buy things?
And that voice keeps getting louder and louder!
The exercise dvd that a month ago I would have bought and not thought twice (and would prob be sitting here on my tv unopened).... is on sale now.... with extra dvds in it...
... and it is a smart purchase
... and it has a lot of applications that will help as I age
.... and I can really use it
But I still haven't caved.....
And then today, I see some fabric at half price! An assortment of beautiful pieces that have shiny stuff on them!
Oh my goodness, I am feeling like a magpie!
......and it is a smart purchase
.....and they go along with a quilt I am planning
..... and they will work with fabrics I already have
the exercise dvd WILL sit around here unused until I get around to it (or, honestly until I get injured and need this particular application) [at which time I can STILL order it and USE it when I need it]
and the fabric? I will love it, no lie.
But it will probably sit in its box ( the last one I bought still is) until I get around to starting the quilt I am thinking about.
And both the dvd AND the fabric will stare at me and I will feel guilty for NOT using them.... or I will ADD things to do to my agenda so I DON'T feel guilty when I see them sitting around.
Better yet... if I manage NOT to make these two purchases...... that is a nice chunk of change to put in my savings.
still slapping my hands though - the fabric is really making me crazy!
How about you? What automatic consumer purchases do YOU make that maybe aren't serving you so well?
