Several years ago: I have an hour before the hair salon opens while out doing errands. It is in Target shopping center. No worries – I’ll spend an hour in Target. I’ll have to limit how much time I spend hahaha right!
Today: I have an hour before the hair salon opens. Silly me thought they opened at 9 but it is actually 10. It is in Target shopping center. No worries – I’ll spend an hour in Target – but it was! I had a few things to pick up at Target (laundry detergent and dental floss) Picked up what was needed, looked at my phone clock and it was 9:10. So now what do I do for 45 minutes??? I wandered around for about 15 minutes, didn’t see anything that “sparked joy” in my loop around the store and said to myself “I’m going to pay and go outside and enjoy the sunshine and warm weather.” By the way, it was in the mid 80’s here today.
I didn’t realize how much my shopping habits have changed until today. I knew I wasn’t shopping as often, but this was a really weird experience! Instead of wandering longer in the store (and spending on unnecessary items), I went outside and enjoyed the sun and warmth! And “reduced” the amount entering our home!
