Little Purchases


Are you guys familiar with The Plaid Barn? My friend Heather introduced me to the site and I made my first purchase a few weeks ago. I just couldn't pass up this little chevron packing kit. It was only $3.57! You can't beat that. I like having cute little packaging materials on hand for gifts. The bags would be perfect for some homemade cookies and those clothes pins... how cute are those?

Anyway, since I won't be making very many unnecessary purchases in the coming months in an attempt to save money, I thought I'd share one of my last ones with you. I also received my first (and last) Birchbox this month. There's so much good stuff in it that I hate to cancel my subscription but again, it's just not necessary. It's funny how I tend to think that little purchases here and there aren't a big deal, then all of a sudden a huge rock shatters my windshield (that totally happened yesterday) and I'm thrown back into reality. Little purchases are fun but it's nice to have some money saved up when life throws a rock at your car. Am I right?

Happy Thursday! I hope your week is going a little more smoothly than mine.

  2. I'm really sorry about your windshield. That totally sucks. I hear you on having money saved up for when life throws a rock your way... I know a dude whose car broke down over a year ago who just isn't able to pay for repairs yet (whatever they may be) because times are tough. Ya know? And hey, thanks for the shoutout! I'm a little embarrassed there isn't much in there, but I hope to have more soon. xxx
