^ Enjoy!

I bought this light blue top and the same style in black, both on sale. I already owned it in black, but I've been wearing it so much, I figured I'd buy a spare for when it wears out.

^Nice!

I bought about $30 bucks worth of party supplies--even though the party isn't until September.

My wife often will find a shirt (blouse? top? whatever..) that she likes and will buy it in 2 or 3 different colors. If she finds something she really loves she'll buy an extra and stash it in the closet for when the first one gets worn out.

^ I used to kind of laugh at women who did that, too. Then I figured out that it makes a lot of sense, at least for those of us who have trouble finding clothes that we really like.

Why does it have to be limited to women? When I find pants I like, I tend to buy at least two pair.

^ No limitation intended! The people I knew who did it happened to be female, plus Roboturner mentioned his wife, so I was thinking of women.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Last night I noticed that The Adams Chronicles, following the Adams political family and featuring William Daniels (John Adams, 1776; Mr. Feeny, Boy Meets World) as John Quincy Adams was marked down 80%, to $11. Easiest impulse buy ever. But I decided I wanted free shipping, and decided to add a book to the cart to hit the $25 mark. After spending entirely too much time adding and removing books from the cart because they didn't hit the mark, or cost too much once I saw them there, I wound up buying TWO books: Alain de Botton's Religion for Atheists and Jonathan Haidt's The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided Over Politics and Religion. I probably should have done my shopping with a clearer mind -- I was fighting sleep at the time. Both the books have been on my two-read list for quite some time, though. At least I didn't open my email this morning to find I'd bought a fancy hat on a fatigued whim..
