It is no secret that I love to shop at thrift shops, yard sales and the like.
I thought it was because...
1. I save tons of money
2. Inventory spans several decades making for unique purchases
3. Home decor can be much more interesting and less cookie-cutter
4. It's fun
5. I don't have to wait for 'sales'
6. There are no mall crowds, etc.
But - I discovered I have a new reason.
Recently I picked up a super-cute pair of shoes.
I knew I wouldn't wear them often - but couldn't wait till I did!
(Translation: had them 2 weeks but hadn't worn them yet!)
My new reason to shop at thrift shops?
So that when the dog tries out my shoes before I do -
I don't have a meltdown cause they only cost $3.
Okay - I am bummed... really bummed... they were so cute!
But I'm pretty happy with myself that I simply tossed the shoes
in the trash and gave the dog a swift escort to the back yard.
Maybe this weekend I'll come across another sweet pair...
