Shopping anyone??


Holy moly, I haven't been able to do a WWTK Wednesday in ages, but I'm starting to adapt to my new schedule, and I'm back in the saddle baby!!!

Thanks to ever beautiful, Mamarazzi, and the new face I see, Crazymama, who I look forward to getting more acquainted with for hosting this wonderful link up, aaaaan the always amazing, Queso, with this weeks questions, and the new face I see, Crazymama, who I look forward to getting more acquainted with.

And they are...

1. Do you shop til you drop, or are you in and out as soon as possible?
I'm a bit of a mix.  If I'm in a hurry, you betcha it's in and out for me, mostly, almost, okay fine, I dawdle a lot.  I like to look at EVERYthing.  I can spend three hours in Target and only spend thirty bucks, because I want to walk down just about every aisle, even if I know I can't get anything.  I'm also pretty famous for putting things in my cart, then putting them where they totally don't belong in a totally different part of the store back on the rack. 

2. Are you a price conscious shopper?
For the first thirty-six years of my life, absolutely 100% of the time.  The last two years however, have been a different story.  The Mister got a great paying job and we started living the folk music artist rockstar life, then he got laid off and our cars broke down and sucked our savings away, now were back at, living the totally tight budgeted life.  Luckily, were both back to working though, but were keeping up with the life of frugality.

3. What store could you spend HOURS in?
Honestly, the stores I love to peruse the most are, thrift stores.  There are so many treasures that can be found, and the book section alone can take up and hour or two.

4. What is the most frivolous purchase you've ever made?
It's a tie, between my couches and my bed.  I love them so much, I never want to leave them.

5. What was the last thing you bought for yourself?
The cutest, comfy winter boots, in dark brown, for fifteen bucks at Fashion Bug.  Absolutely COULD NOT pass up the great sale on them.  In fact, the sale was so good, got the younger a matching pair.

Now, I better get ready to go earn some dough for the matching coat I want. 


  1. I love thrift store shopping--it's an art and so fun to find that great deal.

  2. I shop like you. Just need to see what there is to see, keep it in my cart awhile and maybe ditch it before check out.

    Frugal can be fabulous. Glad everyone is working and you can afford to buy something now and then.
    Thrift stores rock.

    Thanks for the welcome and linking up!

  3. i think i need to check out the fashion bug there is one next to TjMaxx and i have never been inside...but cute boots for $15 makes me think i need t go have a look-see.

  4. i wanna see the boots!! pics please!! and i can do the same thing at target...i never get bored of just browsing the aisles! thrift stores are seriously so fun, i always find the most random things there and i LOVE it!

  5. i like shopping by myself or else i get too competitive! especially with thrifting, for some reason
