Just when I was starting to regret my No Shopping Challenge, something happened.
I dropped a stupid amount of money on my car and tickets to see Maroon 5 in August. The car troubles I couldn’t avoid, but to sit four rows from Adam Levine – it’s worth every penny. Good thing I’m holding out on this challenge as I’m gunna need the money to pay out these two debts. Ah, an upside to not shopping… This thing called saving money!?
Evidentally, I like torturing myself. This means going into stores and trying stuff on only to put everything back as the idea of having to tell my readers that I gave in washes over me. Case in point – I was out getting dinner with Mike when I came across DSW.
“Just want to look,” I tell him.
“No,” he says firmly. “You’re not buying anything.”
“I KNOW!” I snapped back.
What transpired was me trying on 4 pairs of shoes in 10 minutess – only to pout my way out of the store in frustration. Is that a record of some sort?
This obviously wasn’t enough for me as I had to take a trip to Loehmann’s, which I’ve never been to, and do the same exact thing. Let’s just say the remainder of my work day was long…
I guess I’m my own worst enemy. Only 14 more days to go!
