Since starting this new job, we've been going more frequently to the nearby market, which is more expensive than my usual grocery store--at least it seems like it is. I haven't done a receipt comparison, so I may just still be reeling from the increase in the cost of food, but I feel like we've been spending a TON on groceries lately. The silver lining to this turn of events, is that they have the vegetables that I've been looking for for the past six months!
Purchase disclosure: I am keeping that coat from Old Navy. It makes me look awfully silly since it comes to mid-calf, but I'd rather look silly while warm than stylishly freeze to death.
I also placed an order with Athleta (again). I don't know what the hell it is about that site! It's not my style, but I think I'm subconsciously emulating a girl I went to elementary school with who is really sporty and wears sportyish casual clothes and looks totally cute and put together all the time. Except I don't live the kind of life that requires sportyish casual clothes! Anyway, I bought a pair of running tights where the model was skiing, and they promise to be quite warm (if overpriced). I'll try them out, and return them if I don't like them (don't worry, Athleta lets you do that--and I'll wash them).
|This model is clearly warm and toasty--and overpriced|
tights are still cheaper than a gym membership
