Practicing restraint…


So I was in Target this past weekend with my hubby (yes, one of those rare occurrences when he tagged along!) and I walked past the Orla Keily endcap and started to “ooh” and “ah” at all the cute things. I started to pick up the dishtowel set (pictured at far left) when my husband stopped me and said “WHAT are you doing? You KNOW we don’t need those!” He was right, of course… and furthermore, although the patterns and colors are super-cute, I realized they do not fit in with our kitchen d├ęcor at all. So while they were only $5.99 (for a set of two) I realized that it was $6 I did not need to spend, and I practiced some consumer restraint. Which is hard to do at times at Target, believe me, but I’m glad that I did.
