GAH!!!! Sales at Myer are simply evil!!! JUST EVIL!!
You remember that horribly freaky clown from the IT movie (Stephen King)…I tried to add an image but i freaked myself out too much I couldn’t do it…sorry…Just do your own search if you can’t really remember the extent of the evil….
We went to Myer yesterday to just have a squizz and spent far too much money, but you know in my mind of course I can justify it…we needed sheets for the new bed, we needed a mattress protector, we needed a new robert welch cutlery set and additional accoutrements…yes…I swear we did!!!! *hangs head in shame* They were so shiny and bright, and they looked so smooth, their sparkles were calling to me and the 30% off signs were just placed perfectly in front and GAHHHHH!!!
We got the Meridian set for anyone who knows/likes robert welch. I also bought the matching steak knives (2 sets because they are smarty pants and only give you 4 when you buy a set of 8….grrr) and the salad server things as well. I do want to get the other bits and pieces over time that match the set, like the pie server and the pastry forks and the cheese/pate set etc…but that will perhaps be christmas and birthday gifts to myself for the next few years 😀 Although they are not really all that expensive for each set. All of that was still over 100 dollars cheaper than the non sale price of just the set…so I honestly think it was a good purchase 😀
I gave in to the frenzy!! Yes I did!!
IN all honesty I don’t mind though, we don’t have bills, we don’t have kids we should be feeding instead, we don’t have major things we should be spending the money on…so it will take an extra fortnight to pay off the credit card now…not a major issue….
Hubby and I have had the same cutlery for over 10 years (I had it before I met him) and it was the cheap stuff you buy from Woolworths for like 10 dollars, it has lasted us well and done its job, it was mismatched, missing and generally looking a little worn – it was nice to continue to purchase things together. We have been doing a much needed clean out of the old crap in our lives and updating to things we both want instead of what we brought to the relationship through default.
But seriously we can’t really need much else for the house now, we have over the last year spent a fortune on buying things we needed (read: wanted) to improve our happiness rating, and I think we have almost reached the point of saturation.
I only want a couple more things….
- A display cabinet for all my ornaments
- Another bookcase
- better (read: glasses I like) wine glasses
- Clothes Dryer
See not too much more….HAHAHAH just another 6k or so….*cough splutter*….
Anyway, today I am going to spending the day cleaning out, dismantling and re-arranging the bedroom, our bed comes tomorrow and they set it up for us as well as deliver it. So we just have to have the room sorted out, I want to vacuum and move the dresser and clean the wall where the dog sleeps 🙂
I better get off my butt then!!
