Oops - I'm supposed to be saving, aren't I?!

July 18th, 2006 at 07:53 pm

Oops ... oh, that's right - I am "supposed" to be saving aren't I? *lol*

I really thought it was going to be a no-spending day but I sure blew that one big time.

I run across the street to Quality [sometimes I refer to it as Bi-Lo 'cuz I forget they changed the name of it recently. *lol*]

Anyways, what was it I went over there for?

Oh yeah, that's right ... it was to see if they still had a pillow there like the one I bought a month or so ago.

It was like a special item and I absolutely love it ... it's so soft and furry [it's a type of speciality pillow.]

Anyways, I use it all the time [and can't seem to sleep without it now!]

Since I got rid of my big [ugly] office chair for my computer, I've been using a kitchen chair that is less than comfortable [it feels like I'm sitting on a darned brick or something. *lol*]

That was a few weeks ago and then I started using my pillow on the chair seat just so I could stand to sit on it for extended periods of time when I'm online.

Well ... I know how things work and eventually the pillow I have now is going to wear out and I wanted a back up one for when that happens.

Any other time I have "really" liked something and then it wore out and I looked for one just like it - of course, I could never find it.

That's why I wanted to buy another one now for sometime in the future [it's $9.99 and worth every single penny of it so I don't feel as if I am wasting money at all on the purchase. Smile]

While there though, I also got some watermelon slices, a couple of bananas, a couple of long johns [bad girl, huh? *lol*]

I also picked up 9 cans of cat food [3/$1.00] and if that wasn't enough, I also bought 2 pretty votive cups for $1.99 each and then 2 nice smelling candles to go in them for ... I think $1.59 a peice.

Yikes - who put all that stuff in my cart? It couldn't have been me [could it? *lol*]

The reason I bought the candles was a sort of money saving reason.

Okay, I know - excuses, excuses but really, I do have a plan. Smile

You know how you have times that something simple can just make you feel better and I don't mean spending money or anything to do it?

I bought the candles and votive cups so that sometimes when I feel stressed [or deprived!], I can take a nice long hot bath and light my little candles and just relax.

For the cost of them and I'm sure they'll last a long time, I thought it was a wise purchase [or atleast I hope it was. Smile]

One thing though ... I got home and realized that the girl didn't charge me for the candles.

I had stuck them inside of the votive cups before putting them inside the cart so they [the candles] wouldn't fall out or anything.

Well - when I got to the check-out, I was busy trying to get my savings card out and ready and paying for stuff and I totally forgot to tell her that those were separate from the votive cups.

Will have to go back tomorrow and pay for them.

Oh yeah 'n I also spent over $4.00 for a little ball for my cats to play with.

It lights up and makes some tweeting sounds and I figure that they'd really like it and play with it alot [they'd better for that price. *lol*]

There are many times I feel guilty because they can't go out and play [they are declawed and I live on the 7th floor in an apartment building in the middle of town.]

I get to feeling guilty because they can't be like normal cats and go out 'n run and play. Frown

Anyways .... that was my trip to the store today.

I'd hoped to have a no-spend day tomorrow but I have to go back to the store to pay for the candles and also while there,

I have to pick up something for a picnic on Sunday.

One thing that makes me feel better is last night I had returns to go to Walmart and ended up with $55.00 money back and that was what paid for todays trip to the store. Smile

    I hope you got the pillow you like so much. I do the same thing, find something I really like and then I can never find it again.
