I have stated in a previous post that we are all part squirrel. Now I want to share with you one way I tame the squirrel.
First of all I have a confession to make. There are times when I just want to shop for shopping sake. I want to go purchase something nice for myself just as a treat. But I do not have enough money to be a high-maintenence squirrel, chasing after big shiny things. So what do I do?
To control the squirel I shop for cheap shiny things. Most often, I shop specifically for pens. Sharpie minis. Sharpie mini highlighters. Staples Xeno pens. Whatever the pen is, I like pens. And one package of pens can often soothe that need to shop for something fun and shiny for only a few bucks.
So, I always have lots of pens in my backpack.
How do you tame the squirrel-like desire to accumulate new shiny things?
