I'd wander around trying to think what I needed or wanted then every time I found something I would talk myself out of buying it in some way or another.


And end up going home with a new pair of leggings or a dress for one of the girls. blush.gif

You are making the assumption that I have free time with which to buy something...

I would buy a couple of newspapers, a nice lunch, and have a couple of hours of peace, without "Mummy!" and still have $30 change.  Maybe a massage as well...
