Too Cute to Pass Up!
I've always been frugal but now I find myself really looking for deals and being very cautious of every penny I spend.
I try to stay out of the stores because it's just TEMPTATION, TEMPTATION, TEMPATION!
I haven't even been to Goodwill . . . and if you know me, THAT is an amazing accomplishment!
When I see something I like, I've been asking myself if it is a NEED or a WANT?
Unfortunately, most of the time, it's a want! So I put the item back on the shelf and move on.
HOWEVER . . . I was in the Dollar Tree the other day and came across this ADORABLE wine glass that says "Happy Birthday" on it.
Seriously! How CUTE is that?!?
I immediately knew that it was going home with me but in all fairness, I had to ask myself "the" question.
What do you think?
My first reaction was that it is a "pretty" so I needed to put it back.
BUT . . . you saw the "but" coming, didn't you??
I knew you were smart! . . . even though a picture of it on my counter was a dead give-a-way!
Let's get back to the BUT!
But, I changed my mind and decided it was a NEED!
Why a NEED?
Because my family is wonderful and anything I can do to celebrate the day God gave them life, I am going to do!
Yes! I decided that the $1.06 (includes tax) was well worth making my family feel special on their special day!
A new tradition has been born in our family and I love traditions!
