It is sometimes hard working at a retail store, because there are so many things one can buy. I enjoyed looking at them, putting liked items together, and rearranging them so they would be pleasing to the eye.
Whenever I go into a store I look past what I am looking for and see other items I think I want. If a store is arranged in a nice way, I may just pick up an extra or two. I am not alone in this thinking.
I love cups and I keep telling myself not to buy them, so I will not get tempted to buy another one. I really don’t need any more cups. My coffee table is already full, with my cups, and books. Who doesn’t like to drink a good cup of coffee or tea while studying.
I stopped going past the coffee mugs at my job until I decided I didn’t have a cup with all of Snoopy’s friends on it. S0, it was no longer a want, but a need. I was going to get a new cup and my smile was there as I walked to the back of the store, but that smile faded. I may have put the cup all the way in the back and at the very top. Someone found my cute Snoopy cup was gone.
Oh well, I knew I should have gotten it, because if you look at something more than once, then you should just go ahead and get it. Did I learned from this? Than answer is “No,” because it wasn’t even a full week when I saw something even better. This time the cost was $50.00 and I was trying to save some money. I really want to go home (New York) this summer and every dollar saved now will get me there.
I couldn’t help, but look at the bag everyday (it was in my area) as I continued to work, but it was hard. I happened to be talking to a friend about it and he asked:
Friend : I missed taking you out for your birthday. Do you want to go out to eat or get that bag?
Me : I love to eat and get food, but a bag can last forever.
I was so surprised he gave me the money. I really thought he was joking and I would have given him a hug if we weren’t on the city bus. I wasn’t going to go back to work to get it. I called and had them put it on hold. Too bad it was the wrong one. At least I have a picture of the cutest bag I lost…
It’s okay. I am holding onto the gift that was given to me and the next time I see a bag. It will be coming home with me.
It is hard to bypass items you see and want, because you are trying to save for a bigger item.
