Some Things I Struggle to ResistApril 25, 2010 at 3:59 AM | Posted in shopping, spending money | 4 Comments
Some people collect knick-knacks, some people collect antiques, I seem to collect bathing suits. There’s something so enticing about their bright colors and summery designs. When I head to the department store in search of an item I inevitably walk past the swimsuit racks and try at least one or two on.
More often than not they don’t actually fit, but every once in awhile I hit the jackpot and find a brand on sale that fits like a glove. This afternoon I found three suits that I just couldn’t resist. In a normal department store they would’ve cost $125. I bought each today for just $29.99.
I spend a large part of the spring, summer and early fall in our North Carolina swimming pool. Nothing makes me happier than spending the day under an umbrella on our pool deck writing, reading and blogging. I alternate reading and swimming and spend at least a few weeks each summer floating and bobbing around with my mom.
I knew I didn’t need to buy all three suits today, but two of my suits from last year are in near shambles. I now have five suits to start the 2010 summer season. I know it’s more than I need, but I struggled to resist them.
