You Will Not Buy Anything

Ok so now that I have all 3 of these boys at home they are always wanting to go somewhere.  The library, just for a ride and to my nemesis, THE MALL.  I hate going there,  It depresses me to know that I not allowed to buy anything.  I usually bring cash with me for a just in case problem and it starts burning a hole in my thigh as soon as I enter the glass doors.  My boys are in love with Foot Locker, Brookstone and The Apple Store, where they can easily spend 2 hours playing on iPads.  Thank goodness the employees don't shue them away.  I usually try to bring a book or magazine(I miss bookstores in the mall) and grab a cup of coffee from Starbucks and read.  I am usually done in 45 minutes or less and start walking around.  I go in, I go out, trying to avoid those stores near a dear to me heart.  Macy's, The Limited, both Ann Taylor's and now I am being tormented by Sephora and Ulta.  Oh the humanity of it all.  Eventually I will be able to buy something new but in the meantime I shall walk around face pressed against windows sighing.

Oh yeah back in June I scored a brand new sundress and a yellow J. Crew from the thrift store for $3.00.  #WINNING

Oh yeah I have also been doing well sticking to my $100 or less grocery shopping.  It has been a task but I have been doing okay as long as I plan everything out.  Hope I can maintain during the school year.
