Shopping is horrible.

I hate shopping so much that I only do it when I absolutely have to.  I dislike shopping so much that my stuff has be falling apart before I replace it.

At the moment, I should really buy, in no particular order:

I really need a new seat
a bicycle seat
running shoes
pants that zip into shorts
tea kettle
bath towels
office desk

One purchase I did make recently was a new bicycle helmet.  I don't even remember how many years ago I bought the last one.  18?  26?  No clue.  It was in really bad shape.  I had been talking about needing another helmet for at least three years.  But since that meant shopping, I managed with the old helmet.

Finally, my husband convinced to go to a bicycle shop with a good selection of helmets.  I bought the third helmet I tried on. Get in, buy, get out.  That's my motto if I absolutely have to go shopping.

It's blue, my favorite color, and I really like it.  I guess getting new stuff might be worth shopping sometimes.  Now I just have to figure out how to try on a bicycle seat in less than ten minutes.


  1. I hate shopping too...I highly recommend - often times the items are cheaper than in the stores. Some things you'll still have to shop for cuz you have to try them on but if you don't I'd try Amazon. Plus you have the benefit of new stuff delivered to you and not the bad part of going to the store. :)

  2. I completely ditto Kelly.... Amazon prime was the best purchase I ever made, we actually had a MATTRESS delivered to our house via amazon today!
