Today I went to the Raleigh Flea Market (now I can cross this of my list, see previous post) and bought a McCoy 1940's pitcher and a little something for my nephew Parker (because his birthday was about a month ago and I have yet to send him something! Christa- you will be getting a package in the mail hopefully soon!).
My problem is not so much throwing down a bunch of money on a single item because well, we don't have lots of money for me to do this even if I wanted to (blessing in disguise).
My problem is this...I'm a sucker for a great deal. Two pair of St. John's Bay Kaki shorts at 13 dollars each? Okay!! (for Devin) And brand name shirts from J Crew and Gap for about 15 dollars, sounds good to me. (some of my more recent purchases).
I feel the need to always buy, buy, buy. Maybe it's that fact that I'm completely BORED all the time but it's got to stop.
My alternative ideas to shopping have failed me: walks in the park, boring after awhile and makes me wish we owned a dog (which is out of the question for right now and costs $$$). Crafts? Well you've seen my posts on that, still costs $$$.
At least I have a part time job now that will keep me away from the malls for two days out of the week.
I need to find something fun, exciting and most importantly FREE to fill up the rest of my days. Any suggestions?
