I really need someone to pull me away from the online shopping. I seem to always hit a phase right before the end of the deployment where I shop a lot. I'm trying to get everything I know we'll need before we go back to the regular income. I'm budgeting for everything, but I hate spending money. I'm definitely more of a saver than a spender.
In just the past few days, I've purchased a down-alternative comforter from Macy's. It was a pretty good deal, and I had been eyeing these for a while. The reviews were great too.
So If I'm going to have a down comforter, I must get some duvet covers.
And while I was at it I realized we do need new sheets.
Then last night I saw a tankini I've been lusting over is still in the clearance section of a store website. About a month ago I got one from Victoria's Secret for a whopping $15.15, and while it looks just fine, I am hoping this new one will make me feel fabulous when I put it on. A girl can dream, right?
I don't know if I mentioned that my homecoming outfit is finally done. I have a really cute dress, comfortable shoes (that were already in my closet), and a little accessory that pulls it all together perfectly. Of course there will be pictures later.
And a few weeks ago I did some actual in store shopping at Old Navy. I'm going to admit, I'm not usually that fond of ON for many reasons. However, this spring/summer season I was seeing a lot that I like (mostly dresses and skirts). Plus, since all we do in the spring/summer is play outdoors and get dirty, I do not like to invest much into my everyday, playing with the boys summer clothes.
But there is still one thing I really need to find--a pair of shorts. I hate shorts, but I think I need a pair in case the dresses just don't cut it running after the boys everyday. Or what if we go for long walks. The trouble is I almost never get a chance to try stuff on. If it doesn't come in S,M,L, I don't know what to buy. So I'm waiting until I find the right pair or I get to a store and can spend some time seeing what works.
Well, now that I think of it, it wouldn't hurt to get a pair of sandals or two...but those are so little they barely count as shopping, right?
I think I have a problem.... ;D
