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.
