  • LOL-- I just remember what my husband says... sales are just a method of going broke saving money!

  • Hmm... coz one feels like buying but can't. Hence this feeling is natural...... Of course one can always indulge in window shopping. Right? :-)

  • This is so true! I try to avoid sales advertising if I can't afford to shop. I do love shopping Labor Day Weekend so I save for the sales then.

  • Sales being on when I have no money is the only conspiracy theory I believe in . And what is most annoying is that it is personally directed at ME !

    So i am sad to read that you too, Dustbunny are a victim of this wicked, cruel plot .

  • Yep, I know what you mean! I get paid 2x/month and it seems that on the weeks when I am broke is when I see the things on sale, and of course by the time I have money those sales are over.... grrr!

  • The stores plan it that way! LOL....But seriously, I know exactly what you mean. There's always an awesome 3 day sale when I cant afford to get something.
