They are already dangling their carrots!




They have started early this year. They know I'm weak. They know I'm online too much. They know I have the time. WHO? The evil Retailers that's WHO! 

All this week every time I open my email it's there dangling "THE CARROT"! 3 days only save 20%, Free Shipping today, Buy one, get half off second! They want me to start Christmas shopping, they want me to think these deals are only for today....! 

It's a conspiracy The Gap, Barnes & Noble, American Eagle all of them, they are trying to break me! 

I'm not caving, just gonna create a few wish list and keep my eye out on coupons and extra special deals!

Anyone caving yet? It's too early right? or is it?

Ooooooh..... ~✿~
Regarding my rose bouquet, I can tell you that they are on paper, slightly embossed to give a shape to petals or whatever. They are in many different sizes and mostly they are quite baroque. They actually have nothing to do with the todays scrapbooking, although you can use them for this. Oblaten or Glanzbilder, as we call them, do not have any direct translation into English ~ unfortunately.
You can copy the bouquet if you like to....enjoy!

I've actually been good and haven't caved yet.

But it's hard.

Love, love, love the carrots. You are so right -- that's exactly what's happening! And I'm falling for it -- right into their trap. Arrggghhhh!

Pink Martini said...

Hanging in there! :)

Oh My Goddess said...

Oh yeah, it's the big build up. And the hard copy catalogs which fill snail mailbox, yikes!!

Deidra said...

Good for you! I've already given and eaten a few of those carrots!

For me it's Hannah Andersson, Land's End for kids, Eddie Bauer and Amazon.

Look away, look away. I never want to cave but then when I'm Christmas shopping on the 24th, I wish I would have caved a little earlier. Good Luck.

Hahaha! At first I thought you were really talking about carrots! I'm like, woman, they're just carrots for god sake! lol

I have not caved yet. But I hate shopping, maybe I should do all my christmas shopping on line this year? That sounds like a great idea! Carrots? Dangle away!

There are some good deals out there. I haven't even thought about Christmas yet. It is easy for us now that our nieces and nephews are older. They love the green so the hardest is coming up with neat containers to hold the green. As for my mom we decided she gets a free ticket to see my sister. The only ones I have to shop for are the g man and kelly. Oh, the postman, cleaning lady, trashman... xo

Joanna Jenkins said...

Oh boy-- That's a loaded question. I'm craving ALL THE TIME :-)

But it's too soon to make an actual list.... or is it :-)

Mom on the Run said...

They are evil. Very anxious to separate us from our money ;-)

Expats Again said...

I sure have been tempted, but so far...no caving. Both the family in the U.S. and Australia have made out their wish lists on Amazon. We will ship those bad boys in time for Santas'arrival.

Menopausal New Mom said...

Oh, I hear ya! I was just on a website looking at clothing for my 3 1/2 year old, free shipping and the more you buy, the higher the discount percentage! At this rate, I'm going to go broke saving money!!

A Day That is Dessert said...

I haven't bought a thing yet, though it's more because I've been busy. I like to be well into my shopping by now. If it's already on your list I say buy it, otherwise ignore!

Debra said...

I'm holding out! I don't want to wait until the last minute- but I have to "feel" it. No caving here...yet!

Charisse and Holly said...

Never too early to get a great gift for Christmas. Particularly since I end up with so many people to shop for. Wish I could change that! You can wear sweats to our club too...whatever you want:) Bring the Junior Mints...and I'm putty in your hands! Thanks for coming by today. You are so in our Movie Club! Next time you come by...look at our sidebar for more info. Holly at lifelaughlatte.blogspot.com

Have a great weekend!

Bobbi said...

I've gotten quite a few of those too but I haven't caved in to them. Not yet anyway...

Just a Plane Ride Away said...

Ha! I told my husband this AM that I'd like to go to the Centrum and "just look" at the stores. You know, to get in the holiday spirit. Hee!

K said...

I've started christmas shopping, but it's only because I'm 31 weeks pregnant. I'm assuming that I won't feel up to it in dec.

I'm trying hard not to over buy this year, but we'll see hwo this experiment goes.

It's easy not to cave.. when you're BROKE! LOL! Stay strong, although, it's not too soon!
