Recently, though, I have been trying to rein it in just a smidge. I think this has something to do with gathering up all of our tax documents and taking them to the accountant, but I could be wrong. I read that the best way to subdue the internet shopping urge is to pretend to buy the stuff but just don't actually check out your cart. Just let your preshus linger unclaimed in the basket. (HOLD ME BECAUSE I THINK I MIGHT CRY).
SO, tl;dr, I make carts and don't actually push "buy." It's a thing I am trying that probably won't last long.
In today's unclaimed carts (all items that I love and will probably buy because I can't change who I am for the tax man, you guys):
1. This gorg pearl necklace from AU-rate:
Bassinet sheets, which actually I really do have to buy and SOON:
This Rothy's tote bag, which I really think would make the best diaper bag in the universe. BUT WHERE AM I EVER GOING WITH THE BABY?!?
light fixture that does not suck to replace the one over my kitchen table that DOES in fact suck.
6. This adorable initial necklace from Anthro. Would have bought it, but I could not decide if I should get my initial or the baby's
How's that for an insanely eclectic non-shopping list, huh? (Things I DID buy on the interwebs today include a Junie B. Jones box set, some workout clothes for Ben, shirts to replace 2 of Harry's that I accidentally bleached, and a sweatshirt for Jack for the All City dive meet that won't actually happen this summer. AND THAT WAS A LIGHT DAY.
I blame the baby hormones, obvi, and also the complete and utter boredom. You would not believe how many masks are in our laundry room, you guys. BUT THERE ARE SIX OF US, and our county just issued a mask order, so we have to wear them everywhere we go. And OF COURSE I have been filling cart after cart with large stretchy postpartum clothes because HOW COULD I NOT? I didn't buy any maternity clothes, so I feel like I am due. Pun intended.
A blog search reminds me that I actually always order all of the things right before I have a baby, so hopefully, this is just the last vestiges of nesting rearing their ugly heads. Now that there is nothing left to paint. Except, of course, for the girls' bathroom...
What about you? Any pandemic stop shopping hacks??
