I'm a dumbass...

On a recent trip to Goodwill I found myself standing in line (wishing I was over 55 because they get a 10% discount...) admiring a rack of handbags by the checkout. I have far more handbags than I need, but for some reason I felt the desire to give them a look-see. Tucked behind several crappy bags was a really nice (p)leather black bag. I pulled it off the rack and began admiring it. It was super-cute and looked pretty new. And HEY! it was a blue tag which meant it was 50% off (take that over 55 crowd!). I added it to my collection of purchases and waited in line.

Because I am curious and wanted to make sure it really was worth the now $10 price tag (when did Goodwill get so expensive anyway?) I began fishing inside the pockets and found... well... my own business card. Yup. That's right my friends. I picked out a bag that I HAD DONATED to Goodwill a couple months earlier. No wonder I liked the bag.

Thus my conclusion that I am a giant dumbass.

  2. I'm late to the party. Jules sent me your way. Sounds like you and the purse are having some separation issues. :) Next time paint a big orange X on your donations. ;)

  7. Don't leave us hanging-- did you buy it???

    Want me to tell you how many times I've paid the library for books from their sale table to come home and realize I had donated the book(s) to them? Yikes-- no wonder I can't de-clutter!

  11. Hello all -

    So, in the end, I did not but the bag. After laughing at myself for a long time, I decided that the bag was meant to be with someone else. I gave it away once because I never used it (I remembered that I didn't like the straps) and I realized that paying $10 for something that I'd use a couple times and then donate again was not the best plan....

    Sorry to disappoint those that feel the bag and I were meant to be together!
