Really, Really Cheap!

This is an extremely difficult and dangerous time for me. It is near impossible for me to pass up a fabulous sale, and they are absolutely everywhere! I ran in Target only to find all holiday merchandise marked down 90%. I had to breathe in a brown paper bag. I really don't need anything, even if it's just nine cents. I have a lifetime supply of wrapping paper after running the school wrapping paper fundraiser for two years. I have ten trees worth of ornaments and only a tiny portion of my Christmas decorations see the light of day. I have vowed to purge the house of all of the extra stuff and I cannot be adding to it with great deals. Wish me luck during this difficult time.

I feel for ya'. Seriously! It's like an addiction. I have this same problem every January and all year at the thrift stores. Whenever they mark down the seasonal stuff I starting thinking of all the things I could make for that holiday next year. Then I forget where I stowed the box of stuff I bought the year before. DON'T FALL INTO THE TRAP!

I hear ya! I wish they would hand out blinders at Target so all you could see was your list (but, then again, not really) Isn't this why I shop at Target and not it's evil cousin?
