It turns out that I buy too much other stuff as well – especially if they are bargains….
We were tidying this weekend and I discovered 5 bottle of Fairy liquid, 5 bottles of squash and 5 packets of dishwasher tablets.
I am going to try and be better.
I finished the first book of a trilogy and really want the next one – is this allowed – probably not – but I want it in any case. I am rebelling. Amazon here I come….
Curses Amazon’s free delivery lured me in and prompted me to spend over £5 – as the book I wanted was 3.99 – this meant another book – boo!
Still I haven’t bought any CDs.
Two weeks have gone by and I have no more CDs, books or games.
I have bought food and underpants.
In fact, we cleared out underneath the beds and found loads of stuff to take to the charity shop.
I have resisted buying things for two days now.
I resisted visiting a really nice charity shop yesterday (age concern on the edgeware road).
Even though I got some really good offers through on email…
There was one that seemed too good to be true – 10 books for £16 – mmmmm books.
There is the small possibility that I have enough stuff.
Too many bargains and so little time.
It turns out that I am an acquistive little magpie who want to build a nest out of bargain books, cds, dvds and computer games.
The number that I have not read, listened to, watched or played is not a good number.
I will stop and be better in future.
