I've been really good lately. (Lately being yesterday) Where I didn't buy myself anything. I didn't even lead myself to the temptation with the old "I'll just have a look but won't buy anything" line.
And today, after work I ducked into Savers and left with only a couple of small things. *proud*
Set of pillow cases
And yet another 70's shirt. Yee.
But then tonight rolled around and was feeling the buying itch,
I was linked to Amazon.com and was hit with an onslaught of drool worthy books on the front page.
What a devious website. They knew what I liked and had laid out their whole front page going by my previous buys. They make it so very easy to get carried away, and I just fall hook line and sinker for every strategy. Especially with my brain in 'I deserve to spend something on myself because I didn't buy anything yesterday' mode. Bad bad bad mode to be in. The 'I deserve it' line is what kills me.
But really... how can this not tempt you too...
