And boy is that a good thing - especially after I recently declared that, starting in September, we wanted to Do Less, So We Could Do More. Which means we are putting a ka-bosh on our spending. No more eating out, perusing the thrift stores for good deals and, definitely, no stops for iced coffees when the McDonalds down the street opens back up. *sigh*
But thank you, Lord, for these last days of August. Because I KNOW that the good Lord knows how badly I need my retail therapy. And I KNOW he knows how I thrive on finding a good bargain. And so I KNOW he blessed me with these few last minute good deals just so I could satisfy those urges and amaze you at the same time. *snort*
And I know that you all now think I am nuts. But none the less, I have found some true treasures, IMO, this last month and truly am thankful that it was still August, and not September, so I could purchase them.
