Tuesday, I was supposed to have a thrift store shopping trip planned, but that got cancelled the Friday before. I thought I'd do a little retail therapy because I was rather bummed about it. BAD IDEA. I had to go to Target to return some pens and I had to go to Walmart because the other Walmart didn't have the tape I wanted.
I always start out about lunch time, I don't know why. By the time I got to the McDonald's I was hungry, so I stopped in to try one of their new burgers, I got the pico-guac. You get choice of meat and bun when you order. I decided to go with grilled chicken and their new artisan bun. I think I should have just gotten the sandwich and a drink, when I priced it later, it would have been cheaper, oh well.
Here's the sandwich:
I saw this outside of Target:
Next up was Walmart, again I was looking for a tape runner. Of course they were all out, so I'm trying to decide if I want to go to Hobby Lobby and pick up the refills for way more, even with the 40% off coupon.
Last stop was Dollar Tree, I was so happy for passing by on my way to Target, but then while I was in Target I remembered I needed a new shower pouf and shower gel, so I stopped on my way home.
My Dollar Tree rarely has the paper tape, I walked by it the first time, and then remembered I needed gift bags for Mother's Day and my mother's birthday. After picking them out and turning around I found a whole bunch, I only picked up a few. Butterflies, houses, brown design and a pink design, I've already used the brown design. I liked the tiny gift bags, the first one says "Life is tough, so are you". The note cards were in the Mother's Day gift section, I just picked them up cause they were cute.
I love frosted pretzels and I was hungry again. Advil is so expensive, I picked up these packets to put in my purse. I love these magic washclothes. The mini notebooks are for a swap, we're to alter them. I also needed more paper clips. I read somewhere that you need to replace your shower pouf every three weeks, that really just said to me I got to visit the Dollar Tree every three weeks. After getting home I realized I really needed shampoo not body wash.
On my way home, I passed by one of our second-hand stores and was taking pictures of teapots for my co-worker, I went inside to look at one more closely.
When I got home and saw how much I spent I felt rather bad and am not really interested in spending money for awhile. I have been using cash since then, that feels nice.
I did finish a few swaps last week as well, a spring pocket letter:
