Here’s my theory: If you go shopping for something specific, you’ll never find it, but if you’re not looking for anything, you’ll find the coolest things.
At least for me, that’s why I went on a little spontaneous shopping spree last weekend.
First of all, I went to Target to shop for some household items when I came across a really cool, marked down workout shirt and some black workout pants. Given the fact that I am trying to go the gym at least three times a week now, I could justify buying some new workout clothes, because I really don’t have that many shirts and pants.
See, even though I haven’t made it to the gym more often then twice or three times a week yet, my attitude is on the right track. Therefore, I also went to REI this weekend to get J and myself a “must-have”Â waterbottle. I am sickÂ and tired of buying and wasting the small plastic water bottles from the supermarket and therefore decided that investing into something “durable” would be a responsible move – not just for our wallet, but also for the environment. You can’t argue against that. And you also can’t argue against the style of this bottle. I love it.
Last but not least, I made an impulsive online purchase yesterday. My roommate got those really cute, new KeenÂ Sandals. She told me that she bought them online for 50% less of what you would pay at the store. Including shipping. She already had me at “50% less”… but I also had to get these shoes, a) because I’ve always wanted those kind of shoes and never got them, and b) because they are red!
The rest of the weekend was just awesome, too. Great sunny weather, springlike temperatures,Â X-files marathon and a great Sunday morning breakfast at Baker Square.
