I will buy what I want but yes my wants have definitely tapered off. I don't enjoy shopping though as I seem to be very picky. I can walk through so many stores and not find a thing. Today I am going to a bigger town to the dentist. I plan on stopping at their local thrift stores. I am on the search for some buttoned down tops. I don't have many dressier things so I figure I need/want a couple of tops other than t-shirts, lol. Most likely I will come home with nothing.

I am a book and jeans hoarder. I have my price set and if I find them for that price and in good shape I buy them. Saturday I got 10 books for one dollar. Jeans have to be "newer" and $3.00 or less. I must have 30 pairs

I am not a shopper and never have been. I'm trying to get rid of all the useless crap filling my garage right now. Boxes and boxes of junk that I don't even know what's in it. Craigslist is the method I'm using. When my wife or kids buy something I know they'll never use more than once but it will sit in a box forever, that really stresses me out. It's not about the money, it's about clutter. Like for example, we have tons of books about home decorating and home improvement - how the hell do I get rid of that stuff?
