I've had so many great things I've bought lately. I need to share.
I also need to stop buying.
Hello August budget, it's nice to meet you, I'm gonna stick to you like glue.
No really, I am. :)
I will say that when you have money in SO many different accounts and money coming back to you from so many places it's just hard to figure out how it's all working out. Now is the time to stick to our money system envelope thing. It always works.
BUT, that isn't to say that I haven't purchased a few good things.
First off, I did some serious hunting for a comforter set and I found the BEST place to buy it is Ross. They don't tend to have a ton of them, but I know they rotate through stock fairly heavily. It was cheaper by at least half. Similar quality. Of course, it's ross so you need to check it out but if you're looking for some new linens, that's the first place I'd go.
Next, do you remember when I bought my swimsuit and I was all wondering if I needed a swim shirt. Can I just tell you how much I love it? It's not my brand, but if you find a long sleeved one, BUY IT. I'm so glad I'm not having spots of burn from where I couldn't get the sunscreen. Our neighbor told us that you have a 100% chance of getting skin cancer in AZ, so I'm gonna fight it with my swim shirt. And nutrogena on my face. :)
I think I got this drying rack for my birthday or mothers day a few years ago (romantic and loving, no? -- I did ask for it). I can't tell you HOW handy it has been here for the towels that just seem to be perpetually wet. I hate to wash them daily when I know we're just going again tomorrow. Super helpful, and a money saver. I would love a rod or something that can go across my tub to hang stuff on, but then retracts... does anyone know if they make those?
Anyway, those are my favorite things for today. Of course, I love to sleep -- but that really goes without saying, doesn't it?
