After months of staying out shops and not even doing any online shopping because I couldn't be bothered, I have now officially broken and ruined my 'stand against materialism' run. In the last 5 days (4 really, because Christmas Day doesn't
count) I have bought the following (for myself, not presents!):
Black short shorts
A pair of sunglasses
2 pairs of shoes
1 pair of boots
3 pairs of lace knickers (two black, one red. Ooooh la la!)
The new Neil Young CD
However, all that for $390.00. The pre and post
Christmas sales are just sooooo good and to think I wouldn't have bought any of it if it hadn't been Christmas because it was Christmas shopping and Christmas present returns that had me in the shops in the first place. Retail has all its little ploys to get you in there and sucker you in good and hard and boy was I suckered. At least I look good though!
You and your boots!
