Thursday – out and about

This morning I made myself go shopping. You know how it is, when you work in a mall, shopping isn’t very high on your list of things to do. At least it’s not on mine! But last year before my NZ trip, I went and did clothes shopping at Boscovs that was almost pain-free. I followed the advice my coaches gave me – picking out a bunch of things to try on, and then adjusting sizes as needed, discarding things that didn’t fit or work or whatever.

So that’s what I did today. I went in to the same place, did the same things and hopefully expanded my wardrobe with fewer pieces. Now I can really clear the decks of everything else and feel good about it. PLUS, the woman who rang my pile of stuff up kept calling out the actual prices which were neither the tagged prices nor the sale prices seen on the signs but lower! Except for two items, everything was deeply discounted. I saved just a little less than I spent and came home with a big bag of stuff.

I of course rewarded myself with a couple quick books from Barnes and Noble and then drove across the road to Bed Bath and Beyond to do the rest of my mission for today which was to replace my about dead toothbrush. I got two other little things – a small wine rack to hold my newly arrived bottles safely and a 16 oz thermos bottle. Picked up my field-goods order at the Y and I was on my way home.

When I set up the new toothbrush, I also pulled out the instructions for the old one and there was the date of purchase! I knew I had had it a long time but not that long, so I can’t really be upset at the price, which as I recall was about the same as the first one. The new one has the option to charge via USB for travel but promises to hold a charge for three weeks. Time will tell.
