When I go shopping for our family about 95% of the time i always get some things that are not on my mental list! mental list...lol! I suppose as a female species...we do that. A lot! its not a bad thing...some of us feel that we should get what we deserve and some of us feel that we need to splurge. Does that sound like u? Me personally-I make a list, show it to my husband and most of the time he'll add something i forgot to put, then i take my reusable bags(I have made some as well) and I go to the store get whats on the list! Then...i go back thru each ilse and run thru my head to see if i forgot something that we dont have which we need-not want. sure enough we do. pretty soon though i think to myself, do we really REALLY need this? Then i tell myself 'its on sale' and then i tell myself 'we dont have room' cuz we dont. plain and simple. so in the end before i pay, i re-do my rounds and put things back and i feel better! lol its weird..im weird lol! can anyone relate to this? Is there a man that does the shopping for his family? Because I promise u it seems like every week I have to buy the girls new toothbrushes. Myra brushes her teeth 3-4 times a day and she, i guess, gets preocupied with something else and she leaves it on the floor. Once when i was cleaning, she started helping me. I was cleaning with Clorox and that product is strong therefore dangerous for ity bity hands.. dont get me wrong I dont discourage her in any way but the cleaning i do...i worry that shell put something poisoness in her mouth....so i tell myself that ill wait for her dad. but sometimes i just cant do that. So thats why I have to buy new toothbrushes each and EVERY week. I dont know where that toothbrush has been..Id rather be doing that then having to wait in the ER cuz she injested something that could kill her! It doesn't matter what brand or anything a toothbrush is a toothbrush it cleans and thats good enough for me. so i buy the 97 sence kind that come in 2!

As a male rat, let me assure you it is not limited to females or your species! Seriously, the only way I can stop myself from picking up the cool sale item or an item that I think will come in handy down the road is to pretend I don't have enough to buy it and then try to convince myself of that. It still doesn't work very often! Happy Shopping, Love, The Shopping Rat

the rat is funny but i think he has a point :) i will try his suggestion of making believe that i do not have the budget for the particular want so that i will be forced not to buy.
