Alright, if you know anything about me you know that I have a major shopping problem. I do not like to shop, which is why quite a while ago I had been tasked by Chris to spend a little amount on myself weekly to fix this problem. I have failed at that task completely but if you want to read more about it click here to read the $30 a week segments.
My shopping problem only occurs when it comes to shopping for myself, shopping for others or my home is usually a non issue. As you know from reading here I am on a mission to tackle our dreadful coat closet. I am all about a deal, but I want to make sure that the closet is just as I like it. Remember the crazy mismatched hangers that I had in the closet...well no more buddy! I went and purchased these beauties:
Yep, non slip hangers with a cherry finish. You only see 2 hangers here because of this:
I hesitated a bit on the purchase thinking well I'll just get them overtime, because THESE are what I want. Every step toward the checkout was met with a bout of trepidation, that lingered all the way home. When I got home I let the hangers dangle there as I walked passed them over and over again in absolute shock that I spent $9.00 on TWO hangers! At Walmart!! What the heck is that about? Everything there is supposed to be cheap. It wasn't shortly after I took this photo that I began to hyperventilate.
What in the world was I thinking! I mean did I really need 'coat' hangers? Yea it's a coat closet but it functioned just as well with cheap mismatched plastic hangers. OH MY I spent $9.00 on two stupid hangers! Abort Abort!!!!! First thing that next morning I went back to right my wrong and regain my bearings. I marched back into that crazy fancy high end Walmart store, held up those hangers and yelled I will not be taken advantage of. I will not let the perfect cherry coat closet hangers control me! You're Walmart, not Target. Your hangers should be $2.00 each! I said that with a look that let them know I meant business. And then I hurled those hangers back to where I got them from! Ok none of that actually happened that way, but as I politely returned them to the service desk I felt that powerful!!!
Anyway, I walked back to the hanger section and downgraded from coat hangers to shirt hangers! What do you think:
I think these will work mighty fine. After all they are an upgrade from what I had in the closet. Did you notice that it's a set of five? Yep and how about this receipt:
$4.24 for a pack of five. I can now breathe easy and continue with my closet project.
