I have a problem…

8 Jun

Maybe you’re like me.

I find something I like, online or in a store, and I put it in my shopping cart. And then I proceed to go back and forth about it, deciding whether or not to buy it. I usually make a whole trip around the place if I’m in a physical store, and evaluate before I get to the checkout. But if it’s online, it’s a different matter entirely. I leave the tab open in my browser, checking back on it periodically, trying to decide whether or not to click the “checkout” button.

I don’t know what my problem is. I know it’s the thing I want. I know that it’s the best deal I can find. But sometimes those items sit in that virtual cart for weeks or even months.

For example, we really need a new comforter for our guest room. The one we have barely covers the bed, and I’m sure when we have 2 people sleeping in that room, one of them must be cold, because there’s no way that blanket can cover both of them. I found one at Target that I like, and it would be large enough for the bed. But for some reason, it’s still sitting in my cart.

I have a problem.

I have about a million things to blog. But I can’t seem to do it. Traveling really screwed me up here. Right now I have kind of a running list of things, but the things back at the beginning of the list seem so outdated now that it’s hard to want to write about them. So I just don’t write about anything. Ugh.

I’m working on it though. I’m writing drafts, so hopefully something will be up here soon. Thanks for sticking with me and my poor, neglected blog.

    I do the same thing – it’s my guaranteed way to find out how much I really want something. I carry it around the store or keep it in the cart, and if after the whole trip I’m still just as convinced I want it and not having second thoughts (or, at least not enough second thoughts to really change my mind) I’ll go for it. It’s rarely let me down. I guess it does become a problem if they’re things you legitimately need, though.

    I am the SAME way!!!!! I can’t tell you how many times I go into Ross or TJ Maxx walk around with an armload of stuff only to abandon it near the check out lane and walk out empty handed. I think it’s part of the curse of being creative minded… I really do.
