I spent the morning at Ikea. It was the first time I went in without a mile long list of things I needed for my apartment.
As a result I only spent $30. That's about $150 less than my least expensive trip ever.
I've been trying really hard to not use credit, and for the most part I've done well.
However, after Ikea we went to the mall. I bought a baby shower gift and Christmas gifts for the girls.
And then we went to the Apple store. And since I've a)wanted one forever, b)they were in stock and c)I rarely let myself buy 'big ticket' items without much internal debate - I bought an iPad.
With all of my upcoming travel plus a ridiculous amount of school work, it'll be useful and convenient.
Once I learn how to type on it of course.
