Temptation caused by store sales

I always like getting a good deal on purchases, but then again who doesn't? This morning my sister had me up by 7am so I could be up and alert to hit Macy's Preview Sale. I'm not a big fan of the department store, but I do love their kitchen/home department. I don't even have my own place, but that doesn't stop me from buying stuff. So here I was walking through the home department and guess what I spot on sale, the Ninja Blender. Ok, so maybe I don't need a blender, let alone a professional blender, but I mean it was on sale for $89. These blenders tend to retail for around $125-$200. Did I buy the blender? You bet I did!

I know it was an impulsive purchase, but then again most of my purchases are. I got home and put it together, which wasn't that hard, trust me. I sat there on the kitchen table asking myself, "What in the world am I going to use it for?" I already have those Blender Bottles for protein shakes, and my mother has those NutriBullet hand blenders. You can see why I was wondering what I would use it for. I read through the little cook book it came with, and low and behold you can actually make ice cream and gelato! I can't wait to start making my very own Gluten-Free Soy ice cream. I can also make soups and snow cones apparently in this thing.

I'm fairly exited to try this out now that I've purchased it. It's pretty loud I might add. I need to go to the store and buy fruit and the things to actually make the ice cream and gelato.

There happened to be other things that were on sale, but I managed to restrain myself from buying anything else. I almost went into the shoe department, and let me make myself clear, I don't need anymore shoes. At least not for a few months. I have bought 8 pairs of shoes in the past 2 months and that's not counting sandals. Just this past Tuesday I bought some Nike+Free Run shoes that were on sale at Dillard's. Are you seeing a trend here? Yes, I buy stuff it's on sale even if I don't need them, but I will need them eventually. That's my reasoning and I'm sticking to it! Oh, and I got an email this morning form Neiman Marcus' Last Call having an extra 30-50% off on sale items. I just can't resist, besides what kind of girl would I be if I passed on designer handbags that are marked down?

So there you have it my friends; I'm just a victim in the world of retail.

Until next time,

Felipa xoxo
