On Saturday, Claudia and I went to Walgreens to pick up one item. We needed some shampoo.
Of course, since it was just the two of us, we also agreed to browse the nail polish selection.
We completely forgot to check out the nail polish but we remembered that we also needed conditioner and toothpaste. I also found a cool hair product I had been meaning to buy.
Then we saw some big barrettes that I needed to replace because they have somehow all mysteriously disappeared since Claudia started playing basketball and a few other hair accessories that caught our fancy.
When we got to check out I saw travel Tums and travel Advil and I had to buy those and then we saw chargers for iPhones that came in cool colors and I had been promising Claudia I would get her one of those.
Plus when don’t you need paper towels?
Basically, by the time I got out of there, I had spent $79.21 even though I only went in for one thing.
Yes, I am a sucker for the impulse buys, but none of this was junk AND I earned Balance Rewards, so really I was practically making money.
Look, I will justify things in my way and you can justify them in your way.
In the meantime, go sign up for Walgreens Balance Rewards. It is free and all of the cool kids are doing it.
