I’ve been on a bit of a spending binge lately, but with gift cards and credits and such, so it doesn’t feel so indulgent. It totally is, but it doesn’t feel that way.
First, I exchanged my old behemoth Kindle DX, and the credit I received more than covered the cost of a new Kindle. I LOVE it. It’s smaller and more lightweight and can be easily tossed into a bag without taking up all of the space. Now, if only I could find a way to live on significantly less sleep so I can actually read all of the things waiting for me.
Bub starts T-Ball next month, so I couldn’t resist this clippie for Bubette to wear.
I’m a little nervous about being a little league mom since parents are so competitive (hopefully not at this level of super-introductory t-ball) and I won’t be able to handle anyone yelling at my baby. So, distractions in the form of themed hair décor it is!
I picked up this dress:
for myself. The dress was the only one of the three that I ordered that didn’t get returned. I’m close to ordering this dress too, with my return credit. (My spending philosophy: Money from a return is totally fair game. It would be really annoying if that dress money became cable bill money.)
I first saw this plastic tub at Target a few weeks ago and really wanted it, but couldn’t see a need for it. (It doesn’t seem to be available online.) Then I was unloading groceries and saw the mishmash of containers we use to store Play-Doh and found a perfect need for it. Then, after I stood back to admire my cute new box, I saw the various plastic bags with crafting supplies lining the floor of our pantry. Naturally, I need a second box. The more I look around the house, the more uses I see for these boxes. Boxes for everything!
This picture does not do this box justice, I assure you. It’s seven dollars and ninety-nine cents of storage perfection.
I went on a bit of a spree, shopping for Bubette. When I say she had nothing to wear for warm weather, I was not exaggerating at all. Nothing from last year fits, of course, so she needed some things, particularly given our weird warm weather.
Some of my favorites?
