Seven Things Week 23

Until yesterday there were only 2 things in.

I'm pretty stressed out at the moment. Twice in the last week I could have done real damage on the retail therapy front. Friday night I tried on everything that might fit in My Size and came out empty handed despite there being several items that looked fine and were on sale. Also during the week I had an online shopping basket full of more than $300 worth of sale items from The Wool Shack. Again, I purchased nothing.

Yesterday's Frugal Fiesta was the lesser of any number of evils and almost everything fitted into the defined collection development policy.

So am I ... I have been delaying putting mine up in the hope I might get some outs to match those ins from TSS.

OK - gotta do it this morning before I go out for lunch

Sorry you're having a rough time (((hugs))) - I've been there with the 'stressed out shopping but not buying anything' lark - you can't make a decision, and you know you shouldn't spend the money, and nothing is right, and it's all too hard.

I think you and I might be anxiety sisters. Usually I head to Simply Sock Yarn and poise the mouse over the "add to cart" ... and usually I press it and buy!

Olivia said...

wow, congratulations on the self control! Discounted clothing is really hard to leave behind.

Sigh.... sometimes thinking while shopping really bites. Making do with less puts a damper on the whole retail therapy thing.

I'm impressed at how much you were able to walk away from.
