Shopped but didn't spend

May 5th, 2007 at 05:08 am

After work last night I went crazy "shopping", but only spent about $5

I went to Home Depot and looked at flooring to see if they had any mats/runners/floor covering that would work for my balcony. I had seen something at a hotel that might work but didn't see it there. So spent nothing.

Headed to the local shopping centre and went into Marks Work Wearhouse - they had some nice priced t-shirts but nothing inspiring enough to bring it home. Then to check out their shoes. Lets just say their selection seemed pretty crappy to me (sorry Marks, but this is my blog I get to say what I think here). I have to say though that both staff members I talked to were genuniely friendly and helpful.

Checked out a woman's clothing store but nothing inspiring there. Reitmans is one of those "catch as catch can" stores for me. Caught nothing this time. Tempted for one shirt on sale but it had this weird keyhole thing in the back that showed off my bra (and if I turned it around it one would might start using the words wardrobe malfunction)

Then to the Superstore (a grocery store modelling itself on SuperWalmarts). You know the store is bad when the kid at customer service trashes the staff as lazy assed (it took three loudspeaker requests to get someone to call him back about the item I was asking for). I ended up just getting a raincheck for toilet paper from there.

Then to two dollar stores where I splurged and spent $4 at one and $1 at another on some headbands.

    I love Reitman's! Have you seen their commercials with the moms pretending to be models? Those are always pretty funny.

    Does your Superstore have the new Joe's clothing line? The one in our city got it in last fall...great looking clothes for super prices. I can almost always find something nice at either of those stores.

    Good for you for not caving on something that you didn't really like/need!

    Robex, yeah my Superstore has Joe's but Joe's line of clothing is evil. They insist that on one is um... er... delightfully curved... no plus sizes there!
