Shopping Guilt

Yesterday, I finally got a chance to use my giftcards and money from Christmas. I got a lot of cool things, but I feel so guilty for spending so much in one go. I feel like my Dad. :/ I really don't regret any of the things I bought, but to buy so much at one time feels a lot like how my Dad spends money. Which I hate.

I bought some jewelry at Penny's, because I had a return. The stuff I bought was actually quite expensive, but it was super on sale. The check-out lady told me I saved something like $64. That's pretty impressive, though I would never have bought that stuff at full price. There was another great sale going on a Bath & Body Works. Lots of little bottles of stuff for $1-$3. It was great, though, and because I know that B&BW is mostly free of animal-derived ingredients, I didn't check a couple of labels until I got home. And somehow, they forgot to check out the air-fresheners I was buying for my Grandma, but I have to go back to the Mall on Tuesday to get Kingdom Hearts: Re:Coded, so going back won't be out of the way.

Speaking of games, I wasn't planning on it, but I ended up going to GameStop. ^_^; I bought the first Nancy Drew game, which was remastered for the anniversary or some such, and Heavy Rain. I've been considering Heavy Rain for some time, because I love the idea of an interactive story. I am still worried that some parts will be too intense for me. :/ But I'm just too interested in the game to ignore it. I also bought another Sarah Dessen book at Borders. It was hardback, and I just couldn't resist. Another unplanned purchase. I feel so guilty! But as I said before... I don't think any of these things were bad choices.

Finally, we went to Walmart, where I had a giftcard, and I bought some movies: Nights in Rodante (which I'm hoping my Grandma will enjoy), Despicable Me, Wall.E, and Super Mario Brothers (which I know everyone other than me, and like one other person, hates, but it was only $5, and I like it, so :P).

So, I spent almost  $200. Guilt, guilt, guilt. :/ Some of that was a donation to Club Pet, so that's a little better. But wow, so much money.
