A Farewell to Shopping

While it almost certainly makes me sound shallow, one of my hobbies is shopping. Shopping for clothes. Shopping for yarn and fabric. Shopping for things to make my home a clean and inviting place. Shopping for items to make my life easier. Really, shopping for anything.

Today I decided that I really, really, really liked the corduroy pants that I was wearing (which I bought about two weeks ago at the outlet mall), so I decided to drive to the nearby town of Tourist Trap (near Regional Country Music Attraction) to buy another pair.

During the day on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving? Few crowds, and plenty of places to park.

Since I hate crowds, I will probably stay away from the outlet mall for the forseeable future.

I may have to make a trip to Target tomorrow morning and stock up on everything I need that isn't sold at grocery stores or 24-hour drugstores. Otherwise, I'm going to have to pay shipping and handling when I buy everything online.
