We finally got some relief from the heat yesterday. Hubby and I decided to take advantage of the pretty day by taking a quick trip to Prime Outlets in Williamsburg. If you've never been there, it has over 120 designer and brand name outlet stores. It's a shopper's paradise.
We stopped for breakfast along the way and got there around 10:30 AM. We walked and looked until almost 2 PM. The only purchase we made was a cheese slicer for $8.00. The one I had broke several months ago and I missed having one. I saw lots of nice things, but nothing I really wanted. When I have too many things to look at, I get overwhelmed and nothing really jumps out and says "Buy Me". We were hungry, so we left the outet mall and stopped to eat before coming back home.
I used to love to shop and would always find loads of stuff I wanted. The trunk of my car would be full after a trip to the mall. Since I've gotten older, my wants are not as great. I don't make impulse buys. If I see something I think I want or need, I won't purchase it then. I will wait and if I still want it a week later, then I will buy it. That little trick has saved me a lot of money. I also do a lot of shopping on the internet. I can search for the specific item I want and compare prices at different merchants - all while comfortable in my pj's.
Are you a shopper?
