Make Room for Minnie

Light Meter by Lisa K. Berton

I have a new strategy when it comes to shopping. Should I find something that I want and know that I truly don’t need, I take a photograph of it. My savings thank me because it’s far more important to purchase a new mattress than a bag full of pins or a dresser filled with new t-shirts.

All year long I buy gifts to put away for birthdays and holidays. I tend to forget what is waiting to be mailed and so when I find souvenirs that are adorable, I also have to stop and ask myself if I really need to buy what’s in my hand. At least half the time I walk away, you know, after I put it back on the shelf.

Sorry many Mickeys and a few Minnies, someone else will have to take you home.

  1. I feel your pain. The last 2 times I went to Walt Disney World I refrained from adding to my Minnie collection, although I did buy a lot of other stuff. My family tends to give at least 1 present from Mickey every Christmas. Those Alex and Ani bracelets were on my radar for sure.
