The act of pointless shopping

On the rare occasion that I leave work at a decent hour, I find myself feeling lost. It's an unsure feeling. I never know what I should do with my free time.

Attend aerobics?

Go for a run?
Clean house?

Go see a movie?
Buy groceries?


Yesterday, I left work with the rest of the world and experienced the unsure feeling. After three red lights, I decided I would spend my free time shopping. Below were my must-have-items.

1) A new sweater.....

Do I need this? Of course not. I decided it will be the perfect vacation/football sweatshirt. Am I planning to attend a football game in the near future? Nope, I'm too cheap to buy football tickets. But I am, planning a few vacations that are located in colder climates.

2) New shoes....

Again, do I need new shoes? Absolutely not. I'm the shoe queen. Actually, Sister #2 is the shoe queen. I guess you'd say I'm the shoe princess. I do not need another pair of shoes, but they are cute and comfortable. My mom always says...take care of your feet because you can't buy new ones. She's a really wise woman. You should always listen to your mom.

This whole shopping experience burned a total of 20 minutes. *Insert Eye Roll Here*
The remainder of my night was spent sitting on the couch watching TV. Of course, after these two purchases I had to watch TV in the dark to save money on electricity.

Blogger World, this is why I stay busy...to avoid pointless shopping.
