Shopping Therapy

Jonny Paw.OKYesterday, I went to Costco for the first time in more than a year because of these chicken treats that my dog is addicted to that are so much cheaper there, and I was running low on toilet paper. When I shared a household, we used to go every three months, but since living alone, it’s been harder to get motivated. I drove early Sunday morning, and sailed into the parking lot. As I walked through the door, I noticed a Wi-Fi Blu-ray DVD player I’d been wanting at an unbeatable price, and cheerfully added it to my cart. I suppose that softened me up for the bulk buying of zip lock bags, aluminum foil, paper towels, laundry detergent, printer paper, VOKDA, Parmesan Reggiano in addition to the two items that got me there in the first place. I was in and out of the store in 40 minutes, got home, filled my shelves to capacity, hooked up my DVD player, and felt satisfied.

    I do that too – go in for two or three items, and come out with ten or twelve…
