Somebody Stop Me!

I just posted a couple of days ago about how my girls and I went to Archiver's, and I found lots of fun stuff on sale. Well, I've wanted the Love, Elsie stuff for a while, but it's way too expensive when it's full price, so I had no intention on having any of it, UNTIL I saw it all marked 50% off. Well, I took the girls to Barnes & Noble yesterday, because they had some gift cards that were burning a hole in their pocket! Archiver's is just down the street. I decided that I needed a couple more sheets of paper in the Toby line.


Imagine my surprise when we found all of these! Seriously, these were NOT there the other day. Believe me, I looked! My girls helped me look! Where did all of these come from? All of the packages are Roxie, except for the last one which is Toby. I looked for Love, Elsie embellishments in the entire clearance section just a few days ago. Where were you hiding these, Archiver's? You thought you were so clever, but you didn't plan on me coming back so soon, did you? Hah! I tricked you, I triumphed, I purchased, and these are now mine! Gotcha!

Yep, I need help, I need to be stopped, and I NEED to get back on my spending freeze! Thanks for stopping by!

Maria said...

Okay Carol. . .I can't help you because I have the same problem.

I would probably go nuts too! I love sales, especially clearances because sometimes I find really great bargains. I think sometimes it's more about "finding" the items at such a great price rather than the product itself. I'm sure you can relate.

Great buy, btw!!

You cannot turn down something that is 50% off! It's just ain't right. (Unless it is ugly and you don't like it!) Ha Ha

oh, don't you just love that place?! I mainly shop the clearance and hot spots...sometimes you really hit the jackpot...and then I can justify buying a few other things at regular price or with a coupon. justify, justify, justify... ;)
