Shopping is tough

This weekend MR.P and I went to Chattanooga to see some of our sweet friends.  I have been friends with the wife since 2nd grade...ok more like 7th, but who's counting?  Well, we both like to bargain shop.  We found some GREAT finds.  Deciding to buy something or not is really tough.  I found 2 things that I wanted SOO bad, but sadly I already had something very similar. I just liked the newer ones more!  Isn't that the way it always is...we want something bigger and better??  I decided not to get them because I didn't want to start a trend in my life of needing something bigger or better.  That doesn't mean I didn't go back and forth about a million times on if I should buy them or not! 

I LOVE these Blue basketweave Curtains with metal Grommets.  I have been looking for some just like this to give our bedroom a different feel.  I already have green ones in our room :(  Oh well!
If you need them though, they are a great price!  Only $50 for 2 panels!


Then this was a a really tough decision.  I mean like REALLY tough.  These Nine West Boots were originally $170, now on sale for $129 now HALF OFF with free shipping!!!  My friend and I saw them in the store and they are SOO pretty!  She bought them, but I already have a pair...just liked these more ;)  Glad someone I know got them!!


I did let myself buy this great dress though from Target!  It was onsale for $20!!  That's my kind of deal on a dress I can wear to work AND in the summer with cute flip flps! 

My choice of flip flops are these ;) (mine are a gold/brown color though)

I found them a few years ago on ebay for $30.  What a steal!  Now, I won't tell you the story about the time I fell down a flight of stairs wearing these (no traction).  Yeah, it was painful and I had the bruise to prove it!!

So anyways, be a smart shopper.  Think about what you need, not what you want or you will walk away and be frustrated with yourself!  (or with 2 of something like what I almost did;) )  Make smart purchases or nothing at all!
