Shopping for Some New Clothes

After we had a bit of an issue with moldy clothes after we forgot to throw them in the dryer before a week-long trip, I found myself in a situation where I just didn’t have any clothes for work.  Well, I guess I did have clothes, but they would be unsightly and unhealthy to wear, so I put them in the garbage.

Thankfully my boss was okay with me wearing street clothes one day at work, but in my line of work, street clothes are definitely not appropriate.

So, I had to find some new work clothes as soon as possible.

I heard about a sale on some barbers & stylists aprons online so I decided to check them out.  While I usually would rather try clothing on before I bought it, the store that I was looking at online had a great return policy, so I felt comfortable buying them from the comfort of my own home.  I loved the fact that the prices were a fraction of what I would pay locally and there were so many designs to choose from.

I picked out my favorites.

The clothes should be here by the end of the week and that will be in time for me to work on the weekend.

I can’t wait.

Window Shopping on a Saturday

While most of my weekends are busy, this weekend seems to be playing a different tune.  You see, it has been a slow and lazy day, so I have been getting some rest and relaxation by going window shopping.  I know that most of you think that I am talking about looking at stores and browsing through their items, but I think you need to take me a little more literally.

I was actually going window shopping.

Specifically I was looking for windows in Glendale that would work for my latest project.  I bought a little fixer-upper house that needs some serious TLC, and I thought that I would take a look at some windows to get some inspiration as to what I could do with my latest purchase.  I knew that if I could find the right type of window to be the focal point of my living room, it could really make the house a special place.

All I needed was the right inspiration.

While I haven’t found the perfect type of windows yet, the day is still young.  I think that I will be able to find something that will work for me and my pet project.

It has been the perfect way to spend a Saturday.

Shopping in Glendale

At one point in my life I was an avid shopper.  Clipping coupons and going to the mall every weekend was my life.  It wasn’t so much about spending the money that excited me, but rather finding prices that most people could only dream of.  For me, finding the best price on any kind of product was what motivated me and awakened the hunter within.  I considered my talent of finding things on sale like an art, and I was always working to perfect it.

Then came the internet.

Instead of taking the time to leave my home and find deals by hand, all of a sudden I could just sit at my computer and find the best prices with just a couple of clicks.  While it was easier than shopping in the real world, it didn’t give me the rush that I craved.

But that all changed today.

You see, I took the time to get out of my house and shop in Glendale.  I knew there were some good deals on windows in Glendale that I was going to check out, but I thought to myself that it just made sense to get out and see if I still had the chops to find the best prices.

It turned out that I did.

All in all my day of finding some windows for my home turned into one of the best days shopping that I have had in a long time.  There is definitely a big smile on my face.

Birthday Gift for Mike

If you knew my buddy Mike, you would know one thing: he doesn’t say much.  I don’t think that I have ever met anyone that was less demanding and happy with what they have.  But this means that he is one of the hardest people to buy a gift for, which makes this time of year that much more frustrating.

This year, I have an ace up my sleeve since I made a point to speak to his girlfriend and ask her for ideas as to what to get him for his bday.  According to her, I can’t go wrong if I buy osprey backpacks – so that is exactly what I am going to do.

It is Shopping Saturday

As much as I am not a person who loves to go shopping, once in awhile it is good for the soul to get out and spend some of my hard earned money on myself.  So today, I am treading myself and I am going to try to find some bedroom furniture los angeles.  I know that there are a lot of stores around that do sell furniture, but I am really hoping to find a nightstand that will match my bedroom décor.

This should be fun Smile
