Shop till your fingers bleed

I am bad.

No, wait, I am supporting the economy.

You know how today is Cyber Monday, when we're all supposed to shop madly online? Yeah, well, I'm a big online shopper. And today my inbox was crowded with special offers and special coupons and all sorts of tempting things. So while I came in to work this morning determined to resist, my resolve has been slipping the longer the day has worn on, and I started shopping. Of course, the sensible thing would be to do my Christmas shopping, and in fact on my first shopping expedition today, I did just that. Plus a little stocking stuffer for moi. But I have degenerated to shopping purely for myself and seem to be finding all sorts of little treats that I just have to have while they're 20% off. And oh, if I buy just one more thing, I can qualify for free shipping...

Damn it, I'm supposed to be being frugal!

I feel your pain! (or guilt!) It was hard to resist the extra 15% off at bl.uefly dot com today. But this happens every year! And I did need a new winter coat.

We really are helping the economy, especially since today was the official declaration of a recession!

Enjoy your new stuff!

LOL I HAD to do some shopping online today and everything I had to get was the rare items NOT included in the specials for today. Even the rare items not included in free shipping at any price. UGG!!

So infuriating!!!
