We had one of our typical Target runs yesterday, and I was so proud of myself. I had a list of things I was going to order but decided to go in the store and buy them myself. Well, since I had that shopping cart, I got the same things (five or take some substitutes) that I essentially was going to order.
So as we’re headed to the self check out line, I’m feeling proud that I walked away early and didn’t add another zero to the end of our total. My husband starts ringing us up and I see wine right there by the register.
I’m a wine lover of course and love trying new things. But I’m also an IMPULSE BUYER.
I grab the bottle and hand it to my husband to scan, who didn’t ask me any questions at all by the way, and proceeded to pay.
As we walk out the store, I’m thinking, “man I did so good today! Except when I bought that bottle!”
Little victories, people. I was so close. At least I didn’t do it until we were at the register leaving versus buying that entire dollar section as soon as we walked through the door.
Good luck on your own small victories today.
