I have been on the hunt for some Game of Thrones inspired merchandise available in India for some time now. I trawled through ebay.in and some other sites, but never really saw anything that I liked and that I could justify buying – as in get some use out of it. I have no interest in keepsakes, collectibles, or showpieces. Anything I get must have a use.
When it comes to shopping, it can be tricky to control yourself and not just keep spending. One of the best ways to avoid reckless spending is to determine between needs and wants. What happens, though, when it gets to the point that you need to spend money on things that you do need? These kinds of items are necessary, but you still don’t want to go overboard when you spend on them. Think groceries, toiletries, and things like cleaning products. They are needed in your life for sure. It would be pretty disastrous to go without! Here are a few ideas for you. It is nice to be able to save a little on the things that you need to buy.
My birthday is the one time of year, I go berserk. Last few years, I went nuts shopping for my kids (see one of these shopping binges here), but as the kids grow older and develop their own individual tastes, it gets harder for me to surprise them with something they like. I miss that sweet jaw drop of pleasure and surprise when I get them something. But of late, it’s like can I see what else was there in the shop?
So, this birthday I decided to direct that attention to myself instead.
