Buying in Bulk...

Have you ever found a shirt or a pair of pants or just about anything that you love so much that you buy 2 or 3 of them in varying colors?

I was having one of those moments today.

I went to get my hair trimmed at 9:30a this morning to try and relieve some of this unbearable weight on my head. After that I went to get gas in my car and headed to the Old Navy to get some shirts and browse, as well as stop in to Borders for a book.

Once inside ON I saw this simple white sweater. Something about it caught my eye. It might have been the hideous shirt underneath it, but I walked over to the table anyway. Then I saw it... an adorable grey sweater (same kind as the white), but it had a white dragonfly on the upper left side. I fell in love.... I picked it up and meandered around a bit more. I initially went in to get some short sleeve shirts to wear under my scrubs. I ended up getting 5 of the same tee in different colors? Is that a little overboard? I don't think so. After all, I wear scrubs 3 times a week, so it's really necessary for me to have that many tees, or atleast that's how I'm justifying my purchase. :) I went in the dressing room, tried on a cute pink shirt, that hanging on the hnager was adorable... on my body... yuk! Then I tried on the sweater. Was it going to fit? Was it going to look right? Yes! It did!! I was so excited. I seriously contemplated getting another one. I even went back to the table and looked again. I thought that buying tees in 5 different colors wasn't a bad thing, but buying a sweater in the same color may have been a bit crazy. So I refrained. :( If I still want it by next weekend though I might go back and get another one, or order it online.

Am I the only one that does this? Buys clothing in "bulk"? I know my sis Lisa does, but does anyone else? Are we the only crazies?

Hmm... well, I better go. I need to finish doing my hair, do something for work, and copy some pictures to my flash drive for my great aunt.

Nope! You are not the only one. I have many items in my closet that I buy in bulk. T-shirts, sweaters, turtlenecks, etc.

I guess you could say I am an habitual bulk buyer. I think I may need an intervention :}
