We went so the city shopping for skis earlier this week. We had a purpose for going into the store but once we were there I felt the pull towards the clearance section, I would just take a peak on the way by. Soon I was sizing up clothes as if I NEEDED to buy some shirts that had been marked down to $50 or maybe a new jacket marked down to some price that is way out of my price range. I didn't need any new clothes and before I walked into the store I wouldn't even say I wanted any new clothes. Maybe it was the excitement of shopping with no kids or simply that it was a SALE but I was ready to B-U-Y. Luckily I came to my senses before I got anything to the till. I took it as a reminder that the best way NOT to spend any money is to just STAY OUT of the stores.
