Recession Retail Therapy

Retail therapy is hard to come by in a recession. You have to count going to the grocery store as retail therapy. Today I was in the mood to shop. Being pregnant, there isn't much you can buy to wear. I have been given a zillion clothes so I am all set in the maternity clothing department. So, I did what most pregnant ladies do. I checked out the food section, shoes and cosmetics. Food wasn't thrilling me so I made my way to the make-up department. At Target, retail therapy can come pretty cheap especially in a recession. Check out the deals on clearance I found today:




I found New York Color Long Wearing Nail Enamel and New York Color Nail Glossies. Even if this is the worst fingernail polish known to man, I still got a thill because the Nail Glosses was only .23 and I love the color. It is perfect for my fair skin tone. I can't wait to try it!





I went to Target to buy more foundation so this planned purchase really saved me money. The foundation is my exact color and it is for oily, acne prone skin. Just what I have. Perfect. I have worn this Neutrogena foundation before and it works perfectly for my skin. And a bottle for only $2.57. Amazing. It regularly sells for $10.29.






And my favorite purchase that even shocked Ryan, my six year-old was a cute pair of black patent leather shoes I have been watching all season. Ryan said "Six dollars? They sell shoes for only six dollars?" LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them. They were $6.24. Yes, only $6.24.






So, if you only have $11.00, get yourself to Target and do some much needed retail therapy shopping. You will walk away feeling good with new products to try. There was so much to choose from and so many different shades. Look at every company of make-up and at the end of each of the ailes. Some people brag when they spend a lot. I love to brag when I get a deal. What fun!

A quick note about my last post. I do not want anyone to think that I was threatening to quit for attention. There was no threat and it is only an internal struggle. I would never leave it up to anyone but myself. I truly struggle whether I should take the time out of my life to write. It is a real struggle of mine and if so many bloggers write about this, it is problably real to them too. Just saying...
