On Saturday, I had a bunch of errands I wanted to get done before Sunday rolled around, so I took off around town and knocked them out, one by one. I spent some time at Jo-Ann Fabric, stopped for my seemingly weekly trip to Home Depot, went to my favorite shop in Bay View, popped in the library to renew my library card and, of course, made the inevitable Target run. I thought it would take me half the day to do everything I needed to, but I ended up finishing up everything in just three hours!
As with any time I run errands, it was hard for me not to make some impulse purchases along with the things that were actually on my list. You know I can't say no to pretty things, and on Saturday I gave in to a few lovelies that I just had to share with you all.
Sparrow Collective, for ages. I love its simplicity and, of course, I love its sentiment. I may have had dreams of moving to the East Coast for years, but deep down I just love the Midwest. Represent.
Hey, give me credit. I also stood there, marveling at the golden Swingline stapler for five minutes. But my better judgement told me I really only need one gilded office supply. I put the stapler back (but have been thinking about it ever since). Sorry for the horrible photo. I was snapping quickly so as not to look like that freak taking photos of shiny objects in the middle of the store.
After sticking the shears in my basket, I turned around and saw all the fun, new washi tapes behind me. Scotch makes washi tape now in a ton of really cute designs. I took a mental inventory of my washi tape collection at home and realized that it is woefully lacking in the color black. Could I let this injustice last any longer? Absolutely not. Two new necessary washi tape rolls came home with me that day.
So those were my fun, impulse buys. Not too overboard, right? I mean, I could have given in and snatched up this little book I saw at Target, as well.
But I didn't! See, I have willpower, people. I can walk away. But....I mean, come on. That's pretty hilarious. And also: kitten.
How was your weekend? Are you an impulse buyer like me? I promise I bought some pretty productive, useful things, too. And I will share those with you in just a matter of time. Stay tuned!
