My name is Trish, and I'm a Shopoholic

I spent way too much money on frivolous stuff last month. Gotta put a stop on that (yeah, right!).

- Washer and dryer (not frivolous, but was a REQUIREMENT)
- Oreck Orbital cleaner
- Five pair of pants from the warehouse sale at Tall Etc.
- Four shirts from a sale at Fashion Bug
- Leopard print skins for my iPod and cell phone
- Three Soduko books and one Tae Kwon Do book from Amazon.com
- A drinking resevoir for the geckos
- A pair of padded panties (YES! Fake booty!!!!) and a bra from Figleaf.com
- Lots of school clothes for the kids who already have too many clothes
- A new vibrating heating pad for my back on bad days
- A laptop desk where 3/4 of it tilts, and it slides under your chair to come across your chest
- Indoor/outdoor carpet for our patio
- Boogie boards for the kids

I can think of reasons NOT to have bought every single one of those things.

Oh well, at least all of my bills are paid and I'll have plenty of money for whatever trip georgiaskydiver and I end up taking next month.

BTW - the stomach bug has left the building. YAY! I am SO HUNGRY though. I haven't eaten anything in two days except for small amounts of oatmeal and water. I actually lost 5 pounds in two days (water weight, no doubt). If it didn't make you so miserable, it would be a good diet.

I found it at CVS. It's kind of a dark wood, but heck, you take what you can get. I had been looking for one for a while, too. I think it's like $29.99 or something there.

Surely it has at least one. They bought all of the Eckerds and are in some sort of 'open one on every corner' frenzy around here. Everywhere you turn is another dang CVS.

Most of those seem reasonably easy to justify, too, though. Maybe there were reasons not to buy them, but most are useful and/or on sale.

What is an orbital cleaner? Is that the vacuum that cleans by itself?? I've wondered about those. Any good??

No, here is more information about it

It's an Oreck product, which has different attachements you can put on the spinner. For example, I have a cloth one that I use to 'mop and shine' our ceramic tile floors, a brush one that I use when dry cleaning our carpets, there is a rough one you can use to clean concrete/patios/etc. You can even use it to strip floors, wax, all kinds of things.

Oh. Drat. I can see how if you have a house and different floor coverings that would be very useful. But I want to get out of vacuuming, not learn new ways to clean. :)
