Don't go thrift store shopping with your hubby

thrift store shopping

Yesterday I was trying to do some thrifty shopping in a local thrift store. And I spotted the most beautiful little garden bench. Admittedly, the price wasn't all that thrifty because it cost a whopping 194 USD, but it was love at first sight.

Veto...


Unfortunately I had my first love with me, and he vetoed the lovely bench on account of it being 'too expensive'… So now we're back home, and all I can do is look at its picture and sigh with longing because I just know deep in my heart of hearts that we were meant for each other.


Here's my lesson!


So let this be a lesson to you all: don't take your love with you to the local thrift store, because his love will put the kibosh on any new love.

  4. I understand. Although, its usually because what I want won't fit in the car and I can't convince him to get the trailer to pick it up. I do have to credit my other half for introducing me to thrift store shopping though, so I can't complain too much.
    I want to see the picture of the bench!!

  5. I do love this story I guess it was almost predictable what was going to happen :( He may change his mind later when you bat your eye lashes at him.

  7. I'm the one who nixes everything in our house, but I just gave up over the summer and my husband had a field day! Thanks for joining us at #FridayFrivolity this week!

  8. Lol, great story and a lesson that we all learn at some point. Ask hubby what he thinks a reasonable price would be. Maybe just maybe you can talk the seller down. Thanks for sharing on Sunday's Best Linkup.
