meaning that I always feel in the mood to wear blue. I have a lot of color in my closet, but you don't need to look to closely to see that it's predominantly blue. I look good in the color, and I just feel wonderful when I wear it. I'm drawn to the blues on the racks before any other color (although that harlot red often seduces me, especially in a shoe or purse).
I walked into our local Atlantic Superstore early the other morning to deposit my cheque into the ATM machine ... which is right next to the clothing department who've begun to receive the new spring line. What gorgeous colors! And oh dear! The blues were abundant! They were in front of me on racks; there were shelves of blue shoes; there were blue coats & sweaters & pants hanging above me. I felt light-headed with glee; I was floating in a beautiful sea of azure!
I've had myself on a very tight shopping budget since Xmas because there's nothing I really need. I hadn't thrifted since then and have done fine on my shopping sabbatical. But spring is coming. (Repeat this mantra as necessary!). And as I stood there surround by blue, I remembered 3 things:
- I had found $25 cash in a last-years purse when I switched last week.
- I probably had some PC cash points on my account at the Superstore. (Yep. When I checked, I had $40 worth!)
- I had an unused $25 in my thrifting budget for last Jan.
Once I added in February's $25 thrifting budget, I didn't overspend.
Well done, Sandy!
