Why You Should Not Go Shopping When You're Bored

I learnt a valuable lesson in life just yesterday and if saving money is a priority for you I suggest you keep reading because I am going to spill the beans on what to do when your bored and not what to do. This could just about be the most important 5 minute read you will ever have. Not meaning to sound over dramatic but being bored not only sucks, it is damn expensive.

I was at home on my day off wondering what to do when I had the idea of going to my local mall and buying my lovely wife a gift. I admit that I do not usually go off on a whim and buy her gifts, maybe once a month, but I had to get out of the house.

Up to the mall I go and start perusing the shops there when I come across a beauty shop. All ladies love to look and feel great so I thought a gift from here would be perfect. After 45 minutes of looking and feeling nervous I approached the girl there for ideas. She came back with the stock standard line of perfume. All females love perfume. I will be honest here, I love all perfume scents but I decided on getting her some red door perfume. Something about it made me weak at the knees so into my shopping bag it goes.

A little further on was a tanning shop with solariums etc and while I would not like her to expose herself to the harmful UV rays of a solarium I did invest in some lotion to give her the best fake tan. She always has to have that bronzed look so this was an ideal gift for her.

This is where it went all pear shaped. I walked past motorsports accessory shop and put my head in there for a look. I ride a motor bike and a little browsing won't hurt. Well, $125 later I walk out with the latest alpinestars gloves. I know, impulse buying at it's best but I haven't finished yet.

I am an avid camper and thought that one of those groovy coolers on wheels would be great. Another $85 escapes from the wallet and I walk out with the best cooler money can buy. I just have to convince my wife of the bargain I just got.

Here is the kicker guys. I stupidly picked up a product called Dual Action Wrinkle Freeze. It was my belief she uses such a product and after getting roped in by the sales girl, I buy this for her. Have you ever had to evade a flying box of this anti aging cream. Big mistake on my behalf.

So, moral of the story is do not go shopping when your bored but more importantly, never, ever buy your wife any wrinkle cream no matter how honest your intentions are. I have decided that it is better to review what I buy before actually purchasing.

10 Things To Do When Bored At Work

So you're sitting in the office, bored to death as usual. Don't worry, here's a list of things you can do to put that smile back on your face. Just be careful, don't let your boss catch you!

1. Draw a picture
All you need is a pen and a paper. You can draw funny pictures of your boss or a co-worker and tape your drawings all over the office.

2. Join a forum
Find an online forum of a random topic and join it. Now do everything you can possibly think of to make everyone mad. Sounds kinda silly, I know, but still funnier than working.

3. Watch Youtube
Go to Youtube and watch some funny videos. A great time killer, indeed. To spice it up a little you can turn the volume up to max, pick some inappropriate video and then blame it on your co-worker.

4. Play Sudoku
It can be pretty fun once you get a hold of it, and it can be quite addictive actually. A good way to pass the time if you don't find anything else to do.

5. Make your work a game
Imagine that you're a CIA agent spying on your co-workers. Find out their secret plans and stop them from completing them. Make up missions that you must complete. Avoid revealing your true identity.

6. Sleep
Everyone needs to sleep. Why not do it at work? Come on, I know you're tired.

7. Play online games
To play online games is a great way to make the time fly away. Find some cool games and spend your days trying to beat your old records.

8. Workout
Do some pushups, crunches, squats or dips. If you look around you, you will find a lot of stuff that you can use to workout. For instance, you can put your feet on the table and do dips on your chair. Just make sure your chair doesn't roll away.

9. Prank your boss
Search the web for inspiration. Pranking your boss will give you a good laugh, that's for sure. Plan every prank carefully and make sure you have someone else to blame if someone suspects you.

10. Go crazy
If nothing above works and you're so bored you feel like you're about to go crazy, let it out. Go crazy. Start running around screaming while you're doing whatever crazy stuff you can think of. It will feel great for the moment.
