My aunt and I traveled to a city about 2 hours north of here. My aunt texted me on Sunday asking if I wanted to check it out this week, I said sure. It wasn't as interesting as I hoped it would be. We decided at one time it was really hopping, but not so much now. When we were on our way out of town, we found most things had gone from downtown to the outskirts of town. There were a lot of strip malls with big stores and restaurants. All the interesting buildings and sculptures were downtown. It was very sad that there wasn't a lot going on downtown.
This bear was outside the library:
Found some interesting looking chairs in a lounge area
We also visited the childhood home of Meredith Willson and The Music Man square. That was interesting. It was kinda weird, but the bottom floor of his house is set up, just like my parents old house. By that time it was about 3 and we were ready to leave.On the way out of town we found a Dollar Tree. It is bigger than the one here, and I found some of the new stuff I've been looking for.
a journal, coffee stickers, bird stickers, underwater stickers, flower stickers, Lisa Frank sticker book.I finally found some of those new DT stickers. Coupontoprovide mentioned that these dimensional stickers are just the same image layered with foam tape, so you could peel them apart and have double the stickers. I love that idea, especially with the bird ones. I wasn't going to buy the coffee ones, but up close, they are really cute. There were some of the 'Love' ones there, but I wasn't interested in those. I did buy two sheets of the birds and the flowers. I also picked up the Lisa Frank sticker book, someone had flipped through one the other day on YouTube and I love some of the larger stickers.
I would be doing much better at my spending freeze if I would stop going to the dollar tree. I spent about $30 this week, last week $20, and the week before that $40. I need to stop spending. There was a Hobby Lobby right next to this Dollar Tree, and my aunt asked if I wanted to go over there. Since all I ever do is go to the clearance section and I believe there's a sticker sale going on now. I said no. I know different stores put different stuff on clearance, but after all the great stuff I found at the Dollar Tree, I knew it was better to not be tempted.
