Yesterday just after noon I got kind of restless and went out for a bit. I went to World Market. I really don’t know why I go in there. It’s too expensive.
Then Bed, Bath & Beyond is right next door. So I wandered around in there and almost bought a new heating pad. Mine is old and beat up and I use it every single night.
Then I decided the price was just too much. I’d look on Amazon. And I left there empty handed. Came home and ordered one on Amazon.
I found these two boho style cutting boards at Tuesday Morning. The small one was $9.99 I believe and the larger one was under $15.00 I knew they’d look pretty on my countertops.
I’ve been buying things for my kitchen lately. Like big spoons for soup and various utensils. Finally, probably after 20 or more years, I threw out my plastic utensils! Should have done that a long time ago.
Do you know I bought my first wash cloth since I moved to Tulsa just about a month or so ago at Tuesday Morning? Now I have two new ones. The rest I should just toss.
I also bought one of those clear plastic containers you put eggs in for the fridge. I figure with the hard top on it, I can stack something lightweight on it. Refrigerator space is at a premium.
I bought four bright red salad plates for $1.99 each just because I never buy anything for Valentine’s Day and I figured that kind of fit the bill.
Oh and at the grocery store last week I bought myself one of those heart-shaped boxes of chocolate. Just a little one under $4.
Now why shouldn’t a single lady, or a married lady for that matter, buy her own box of chocolates?
I found a few other odds and ends. Things I always look at but never buy. Like an over the door hanger for the bathroom. And an over the side of the tub soap shelf so my soap isn’t a gooey mess.
I do love me a bargain. I asked when their weekly shipment comes in at Tuesday Morning, and they told me Tuesday. Appropriate, huh?
Tuesday Morning has kind of become my go-to store. I like Homegoods a lot, but it’s a lot further away. And Tuesday Morning is only about 3 miles away. Not much traffic getting there and it’s never crowded.
There’s an elderly man who works in there and he always wears a suit and a bow tie. Always looks so dapper.
It was nice and sunny if a little but chilly. I rolled my window down and enjoyed the fresh air.
I also switched out my dining room table for the old yellow one that was in the bedroom where Ivy eats. I was just ready for a change. Now Ivy eats on the other one.
That poor old yellow table was a $10 find years ago. But the yellow paint I last slapped on it cheers me somehow. A little switcheroo always lifts my spirits.
