Subtotal: $615.91



Hey guys, remember that time when I almost spent $900 on clothes?

Well, I did it again today. And Kurt can't even get mad at me.

I shop online. I go from site to site and fill up shopping carts with awesome deals and expensive clothes.

And then? I close the window, and walk away.

It's therapeutic.

You should give it a try.

In fact, why don't you? Go fill up some shopping baskets, write a post, and I'll add a linky down at the bottom.

Here are some of the items that I didn't buy today









 Pierside Shorts, $34.99










Subtotal: $615.91

Taxes: A really big number

Shipping: I don't even want to think about it

Grand Total: $0.00

And yet, it is was very, very satisfying.

----------------------------

What didn't you buy today?

Write a post, and link up below. Be sure to link back, so your readers can come check out the other items that didn't get bought.

And here, I even made a button

Life in the Pitts

(using this button is not necessary. But you've got to admit, it's pretty awesome.)

I'll leave the linky up through tomorrow. Let's say- Friday night, at midnight.

You do the best buttons ever! I'm not going to post a link because unlike you if I go fill up a bunch of on-line shopping bags full of stuff, I won't have the will power to not push the purchase button. ;)

oh, i love anthropologie SOOOOO much. that's the 17th reason i married damon- i can't wait till he's out of med school/residency and making the bucks so i can buy my wardrobe there. confession: i convinced my sister (luckily it wasn't hard) to get 'bridesmaid' dresses from there. so i can get one with no expense to me! haha. all going into her wedding budget. awesome.

so i just did this on the anthro website. but i spent $3800. how depressing, i didn't even get that much. one day. ps, sorry you didn't know i was knocked up. we didn't really put up a big banner saying "we're knocked up!!!''... so yeah it kinda just creeped in there. love the blog, always. ok no more comments now.

I know I haven't commented in a while, but I love reading your posts. You really should be an author. I need to shop like this more often because I think it WOULD make me feel better.
I was bummed we didn't catch up with you guys in D.C. Are you free to play games sometime soon?

Ooooh!!! What brilliant idea! I'll be back with my link, off to do some non-shoppin!

JoJo said...

OMG I do that all the freaken time and it makes me feel better! Only today I actually clicked the check out button and it had my credit card info stored (yes I'm a chronic member of online shopping)and I went ahead and bought about $450 worth of clothes and one pair of shoes! Eeek!!

I can't write a post about it because if my husband reads it he'll kill me!!

I'll deal with it another time hehehe....

Hi Helena. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm following you now too & also on Twitter. I love to shop & I scrapbook too (I'm not too good at it either. My mind goes blank when I try to create a page).

I wish I had your willpower when it comes to shopping! I am now following and I'm looking forward to reading more.

That is so funny that you do that. I do it too! I have done it for years. Sometimes I buy and sometimes I window shop via online stores. You are right...it is very therapeutic! :-P
