I made the decision to go to the Boxing Day sales because we really needed a new toaster.
I was nervous that my brain would turn to mush in the shops and I would be sucked in to buying stuff I didn't need....but I was amazed how easily I coasted past all the stuff that people were sifting through. In previous years I would have been right there along side of them, seeing what 'bargains' I could get...yeah stuff I never knew I needed till I saw it on sale....
I managed to come away with only a toaster, and a calendar for the new year at half price, and one solitary book for $7.50 (reduced from $27.50)...and guess what the book is about........decluttering!
I came home and said to DH what a fantastic shopping trip it was....he looked at my small amount of shopping and said "It doesn't look like you got much" and I said "yep, that was what is fantastic about it."
Is anyone else braving the sales?
