Because I will be black friday thrifting in a previously undiscovered territory, I thought it would be wise to do some pre-shopping at the Goodwill in Redlands, CA to orient myself with the lay out of the store and hide spy any potential buys.

My plan backfired as my pre-shopping turned into actual shopping. Good thing I had a senior with me, so I could  use her 10% discount. Thanks mom.

I've been wanting a pair of moccasins so bad it hurts, ironically, these actually hurt. I want to put the "sin" in moccasin.

car emblem necklace- I made it
sweater- thrifted
shorts- cut and thrifted
tights- Target
left boot- Target

Here's what real people have to say about the places I will be going on Friday. Really, I couldn't make this ish up:

"This place is across from a convalescent home so all of their great prized possessions end up there."

"The location is in San Berdoo so i wasn't expecting much, I did go kind of late, but police car shooing away a "street walker" the next street over had me rethinking the place.
I'm glad i kept going though, because this place is amazing!"

"Some people might say San Bernardino is a shithole. That may be so but I grew up there and I love it like family." 

I don't know how I'll sleep tonight, but Im sure Ill find a way between allergy pills and classy full glasses of wine. The moral of the story here is: pre-shopping IS as dangerous as real shopping as they can both lead to pregnancy.

Happy Thanksgiving,

    like your outfit very much perfect for shopping.
    never go for pre-shopping, it always will end in real shopping!

  10. Well pre-shopping has still got to be less dangerous than cyber shopping, which I have been doing nonstop for the past 3 days. I literally forgot to shower or eat. That's how bad it's gotten. And I won't even go to the mall like a normal person and fight for the last xbox on the shelf. I've changed.
