We’re just going in to buy FOUR things ONLY. ONLY I say! Write it down so we ONLY get those things.
- Toilet Paper
- Paper Towels
- Lysol disinfectant wipes
Yah right. Whenever we go to Costco it’s NEVER just what’s on the list. You’d think I’d know better. I LOVE deals. and buying 500 whatchyamacallits sounds like a deal to me! Sure I have no room left in my freezer, linen closet, or pantry shelves, but I’m striving to get a bigger house soon-soon anyway right? This is just a motivator to save more and get it sooner! I need space for all my Costco buys.
Forget that I hate throwing anything away. I swear we could use it again. Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. We should save that empty paper towel roll thingy. Then when we have another one Marcus can make binoculars. I meed to save this small amount of yarn left over so I can use it to make a flower, or a hat for a doll, or SOMETHING. Sadly, I have a garbage bag full of yarn waiting to be used. It’s come to the point where The Husband won’t let me buy another one until I finish the bag.
Same goes for baking pans. But, when you buy you need at least two. I think I need three, so I’m compromising at two. Two muffin trays, mini-muffin trays, cookie sheets, circle and square cake pans, spring-form cheese cake pans, pie plates, mini-loaf pans and loaf pans. That’s it. I could still use a Madeleine cake tray, offset spatula, piping bag kit, and bigger kitchen.
Everyone has their thang. Mine happens to be yarn, cookware, and before kids, clothes. Oh, and books! Love to read. Couple that with never throwing stuff away, and well….I’ve had interventions. More like ‘Yellings’. THROW IT AWAY seems to be the theme. That, and ‘you can’t buy one until you throw one away’.
Yours may be clothes, purses, shoes, movies, t-shirts, golf stuff (ahem….franklin…I’m callin’ YOU out!), tools, furniture, lego, video games, whatever!
Ikea, home stuff stores, costco/priceclub and the like didn’t become profitable because we don’t like to buy stuff.
Everyone has their thing they like to spend their money on, is all I’m saying.
