Sassy Girl had a birthday party to attend over the weekend. So Bossy Boy and I hit Wal-Mart to get some Valentines for their class parties. We had time to kill, so we just wandered around for awhile.
In the past, this would have been dangerous. I would have picked up a few things in addition to my intended purchases. And before you know it....I spent money on junk. Now, I wouldn't have thought it was junk at the time. For me, I would have been trying to decorate, or replace something, or organize something.....
But I found as I walked around....nothing appealed to me. There are things I would love to replace, and I sort of have things picked out, but they aren't in the budget. In the past, I would have gotten some cheap solution and never quite be happy with my purchase. And as I looked at some of these items, I just didn't want it.
I totally think that Walmart and Target have their place in the world. I love both for different reasons. But I am moving past good enough for now to I earned the money to purchase what I really want.
So we came out of there with 2 boxes of Valentines, and packages of bubbles and pens as the "gift." Nothing else. Not even a yearning to purchase more.
I am worth waiting for what I really want. And it will feel great when I get there.
