Money can’t buy happiness…but shopping sure does make me feel better!

So I had to go to Target yesterday to buy something for my boss, and while I was there, I felt the urge. The urge to buy something-anything-to make myself feel better. I am not only an emotional eater, I am also an emotional shopper. Which just makes me fat and poor. 🙂

I walked through all of the clothes, telling myself I didn’t need to spend, I just bought a dress on Friday (when I found the Charming Charlie store at the Forum-a store I wish I had never walked into…too many cute things to buy) and I really needed to save my money. I may not have a job in a few weeks, I don’t need to buy anything!

(Sorry for the poor quality-I can’t take a good pic with my IPhone)

But then….I saw it. An ADORABLE storage ottoman. And….it was on sale ($39.99 marked down from $59.99)! I took this as a sign that I should buy it. So I did. Oops. 🙂 But it sure does look cute in our living room. And I felt much better when I left the store.
