|This is why I shop online - too many people.|
It's also the time of year you're supposed to shop for everyone except yourself.
Sure, you can play the one-for-you one-for-me game, but suddenly you're eating Ramen for 2 weeks and negotiating with the electric company to keep your lights on. Or you can have a little self control and only buy yourself one thing per shopping trip. This isn't really that bad a plan, until you realize you're buying a scented candle for your favorite aunt because you had to buy that amazing coat on sale at Banana.
|If this dress is still available, I'm getting it.|
And I'll wear better shoes and jewlery.
I also make a list of stuff I want for after the holidays. So when that payout of my vacation days comes in (and only taking a few days off this year pays off), I'm totally buying that orange sweater dress from Loft. And probably a pair of shoes. Maybe shoes to go with that dress.
