I have a weakness for sales (bargains) and I also have a thing for Bath and Body Works products; this is a dangerous combination.
Today, I received an email announcing $1 shipping for two days only. Oooh! Have to hurry…it won’t last long. I actually browsed the website and considered making a purchase. Luckily, the rational part of my brain stopped me from doing something stupid; like clicking ‘Add to Cart’.
You see, if I actually made another purchase, I wouldn’t have anywhere to put it. I already have 7 foaming anti-bacterial hand soaps, 2 bottles of shampoo and conditioner, 3 shower gels and 10 bottles of scented body lotion. Really, I don’t smell that bad.
I got myself in this mess during two ill-fated trips into the store (I’m pretty sure I have ‘sucker’ stamped on my forehead). Both times, I used coupons for $10 off a purchase and got roped into the ‘buy two, get three free’ promotion. It gets me every time; I’m a marketer’s dream. Unfortunately, that also makes me my husband’s nightmare.
