Sometimes I've been known to make impulse purchases.
Okay, okay, who am I kidding? I make impulse purchases all.the.time.
That's why I try to stay away from shopping centers and department stores.
Because every time I go to Target, I buy more than I went in to buy. I get sucked in by the nail polish, clothes, makeup, home goods, kitchen supplies, and even the popsicle molds.
It's also bad when I get coupons in the mail, such as from Kohl's or Bed, Bath, & Beyond. 30% off! How can I resist? I should have never signed up for that Kohl's Charge Account.
It's even worse when it's spend $50 and get $10 for your next shopping trip. Because, duh, I have to go back and spend that money. But I never spend just $10. It's all a scheme I tell ya. And they are taking me for whatever I got.
That, in a nutshell, is why I try to avoid going to those places unless I really need something.
As it turns out, I'm not the only one with impulse buying habits. The Farmer has a little impulsiveness himself.
We went to Bed, Bath, & Beyond the other weekend because I, of course, had a coupon that was soon to expire. The Farmer exclaimed that he really wanted some beer glasses.
Of course, I knew right where they were because I've looked at them a million times. (I've lusted for them for awhile.)
Since the Farmer decided he didn't really need all 4 glasses in the set. We decided on a shared custody arrangement. He gets two and I get two.
Meet my two newest glasses. Pilsner babies. I'm adding to my collection of drinking glasses. I now have mugs, shot glasses, wine glasses (red) and these. (I still want some margarita glasses and martini glasses and a few different sets of beer glasses. Did I mention I don't even have tumblers? Pathetic.)
Of course I had to break in the new glasses by having one of my favorite beers in them. Love me some Fat Tire.
Mmmm perfect for a summer night.
The beer tasted even better out of this special glass ;)
