I’m about to go shopping, I need a bit of a break, and I had the following thoughts…
I need to go shopping to get new printer cartridges. This is a necessity.
I would like to look for new shoes while I’m there, because I need new shoes of course, what girl doesn’t? I have no qualms buying shoes, but will try and not walk into Aldo’s or Nine West, because I can’t justify their prices.
I’m currently earring-less, because I realised this morning that for some reason, I only put the one on… the other one is now in my car. Weird. Second time this week that I’ve done that. I would like to buy another pair of nice earrings because mine are a little old and sad. But again, I wonder about whether I should spend that money.
I’ve finished a bottle of perfume. I would like to get another bottle, yet I wonder about the waste of money.
However, get me wandering onto a camera site like Orms or SACamera or a new site to me CameraQuip, and I have no qualms about spend x times the amounts mentioned above on a new lens, and I immediately start scheming about how to justify the cost of buying a Canon 5D Mark II.
Or, take me into a kids clothing store, and I have no issues with filling bags with clothes and shoes for the boys.
Another example, is this morning, when I was trying to work out whether I should buy a new car, just because my back gets sore in my Jazz! And you know how I am about new cars!
Is it just me? Maybe it’s the fact that the things I ponder about are for me personally. I immediately think it’s a waste of money, and can think of hordes of other things to buy instead.
Oh hell, enough of this thinking, I’m going spending!
