This (above) is the book I purchased today for our Book Club. The cover price was $25. But I am an Indigo/Chapters iRewards member, and so I save 10%.
I drove into the city after my ultrasound today to "slip in" and pick it up.
I parked the car. I went inside. I was handed a coupon for an additional 10% off for iRewards members. I entered the title of the book into the computer and found it's location.
WAIT! BACK UP ONE MINUTE!
The coupon. That's where things took a turn for the worse...
Done. Count me in.
I had some birthday money stashed away in an unused part of my wallet (I put it in there naively thinking that I won't spend it. It worked, and for 21 days this time. New record? Maybe.) I was going to save it and put it towards a new slip cover for our white couch, which is not-so-kid-friendly.
I am a compulsive shopper. I admit it. Everyone knows it. Big deal. For the most part, I have it under control (I mean, it's not like Miles is running around with no diaper on... and we make contributions to out RRSP's each month....)
Heidegger and a Hippo Walk Through Those Pearly Gates
My Book Club Book. And the only item I intended on buying.
I couldn't decide which one I like better. Was it more important to Sleep or Breathe? Hard choice. Couldn't make it. Bought 'em both.
Another Cook Book.
The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone.
Clearly, I am addicted to cook books.
And I lent most of mine to my sister, who hasn't returned them (but is actively using them, so I'm not mad... just left feeling empty). So I thought to myself: "Self, you have some perfectly good post-it tabs that are dying to be put onto pages of recipes you want to try. And heaven forbid you piss off your post-it's..." so I bought the book.
And I have NO buyers remorse when I flip through & see the Summer Succotash (pg.169) with beautiful green lima beans or the Cheesy, Oozy Guacamole Bean Dip (pg.207).
Some Picture Frames.
Silver plated ones. And a beautiful white one with raised flowers.
I need these for pictures of the new baby. All existing picture frames are full. I want to be fair don't I?
