I'm An Addict
My addiction is out of control, I find it controlling my thoughts as I'm drifting to sleep, I can't wait to get my next fix, it calms my nerves, I'm instantly wearing a massive smile when I enter. I wonder if they have a thrift store anonymous counseling group,....Ok I don't think I need to go to that level of therapy yet. It all started years and years ago visiting the DI with my Aunt Lillian, she is the most talented thrift store shopper I know. I knew I was addicted to thrift stores when I had gone twice within a 24 hour period. I had positioned and item a certain way when I left, when I went back the next day it had not been touched. Savers in SLC is one of my favorite thrift stores. Personally I think the DI is way overpriced. Several times I have bargained a better price on an item at the DI, it's true, and I'm not ashamed of it. I could do without the smell that permeates through every thrift store I have entered, the price I pay to find an antique chair. I can't decide if it's the best therapy I have, or if I need therapy for an excessive shopping addiction:). I will go with, its outstanding personal therapy that is practically free, ok almost;)! Who else is addicted?
