Of course, I don’t even need to tell you — I went back to The Useless Crap Store and bought the jewelry box — luckily, they’d discounted it a LEETLE more and I took that as a sign I was meant to have it. I also cleaned them out of the Armenian Cracker Bread — I won’t be having a repeat of the Red Beans and Rice Chips incident!
Then I went over to the Dollar Tree — not to be confused with Dollar General, which is just kinda like a smaller K-Mart, at The Dollar Tree, everything actually IS $1.00. And that’s where I got possessed. I bought fake pine garland to wrap around the porch railings, which, added to the crap I already bought at Michael’s and Big Lots, has resulted in my porch looking FAR more festive than I actually am. I mean, we’ve got fake greenery, fake poinsettias and shit in the window boxes, lights, the works. Weird.
AND I SWEPT UP THE FUCKING LEAVES! What’s WRONG with me?
Then I got to spend the rest of my evening playing with my jewelry and putting it into the new box, which is one of my very favorite activities anyway (I know, it’s one of the few girly things I do). Today I think I’m going to reorganize under the bathroom sink using the new boxes from Big Lots (which — not to toot my shopping skillz horn, were A DOLLAR EACH, holla!). This will be kinda heart-rending, since I’ll be throwing out makeup I’ve had since junior high, but the time has come. Your prayers will be appreciated.
