It's true... I really don't like to shop

You Are a Reluctant Shopper

You really don't enjoy shopping. For you, it's just another chore.

You approach shopping systematically. You research what you're going to buy and come prepared with a list.

Of all the types, you are the most likely to not buy things you don't need.

You try to de-emphasize stuff in your life. You find shopping and buying things to be a rather empty experience.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! ... Although I didn't sleep that well last night I must say that I am really enjoying myself. I hope everyone is enjoying their family and friends as I am.

Take care!

Monday's Muse - meeting inspiration halfway

My friend at Maternal Spark talks today about meeting inspiration halfway. I loved her post and the quote she used by Sigmund Freud (You'll have to pop over and read it for yourself.)

So I thought about how I am going to meet inspiration this week. I think my halfway point is going to be my mini-vacation and trip to my home state for the Thanksgiving holiday and weekend.

I am so excited to be able to see my BFF again, visit my mommy and relax that it seems like the days are dragging by. Although I hope I can get everything accomplished that needs to be done before I go, I am anxious to spend almost five days relaxing and focusing on myself. My oldest daughter went to Texas this morning and the younger kids will be staying with their father. (I get Christmas this year.)

When I return I am hoping to bring some creativity and relaxation back with me. And that, my friends, is how I'm going to meet inspiration halfway. What are you going to do?

If you like my Monday Muses (and even if you don't. LOL), feel free to read more of them now. To visit the brilliant mind behind this weekly post/meme, visit Maternal Spark.

Save money using SpaLook coupon code

Money is tight for everyone during these tough economic times, which is causing people to look for ways to save as much money as they can. One of the best ways that I've found to save money is by using coupons even when doing holiday shopping. Although saving money is important it is just as important to most people to acknowledge the ones they love.

For instance if you were interested in purchasing a special product for a woman in your life you might consider an Aromatherapy Associates Relax Candle with Pure Essential Oils and use a SpaLook coupon code to maximize on your savings. Ordering from SpaLook is a great way to save money because in addition to your coupon code you can get free shipping or free products with certain order.

This is definitely a time when we all should be mindful of how we spend money whether it is something we need to do or what to do – frugalness is essential. Try not to go all out this holiday season and carefully consider your purchases and how much money you are spending.

I’m curious: How are you going to save or maximize on your money this holiday season?
