Say No To Bandwagons!

Mr. Old School has been wanting me to get on this "no shopping" bandwagon for the longest time. I've tried and tried but I keep on falling off the darn thing. Hey! It's not my fault those bandwagons aren't equipped with the latest state of the art seatbelts, let alone walls to prevent you from jumping off easily like a maniac escaping an asylum! (No shopping? Now, THAT's crazy!) I mean, even if you didn't want to fall off, without said walls or seatbelts, a little bump (read: sale) could easily throw you off, right? If they intended people to stay on the darn thing, they should have added those key components, maybe even added bars or something. Needless to say, the last "no shopping" bandwagon I fell off from has left and it has left a long time ago. (I heard that some of the ladies that were on the same bandwagon fell off too, no thanks to these Fourth of July sales. Hmph!) I'm just waiting for the next bandwagon to come and I promise, sincerely promise, to try harder to stay on the darn thing next time! In the mean time, I must control (read: torture) myself.

Ha, there really needs to be a support group for us ladies! Not shopping is difficult work!

Amen to that! :)

Yep! And who are the men in our lives to tell us not to shop? They want us to look our best, don't they?

summer parties, birthdays, no way that shopping should be prohibited

i think it is actually impossible to stay securely tied to the bandwagon!
especially with lots of sales popping up of late

Lol, my mom needs some help too lol, I hope you will be able to stay on next time, but don't torture yourself! Maybe shop a little rather than too much (If that's possible for you) :)

I really need to get on the no-shopping bandwagon. Or maybe more so the 'thrift-only' bandwagon. Yes, I think I could probably survive doing the latter, haha.
