As such, I pulled the trigger on the new T-Boots.
UGH, so expensive, but so pretty, and reviewed well enough that they were worth the gamble for me. I'm still not sure if they'll fit the big mare since there is nothing "M/L" about her. She's more of an L/XL (extra, extra looooong) sort of gal.. but we shall see.
|I imagine this happening inside my bank account...|
I thought I was safe, I really did. Oh, did I mention last week I bought P1 another blankey because her favorite one was on clearance??? Cause I did (Visa card emits high pitched squeal and keeps tap dancing on my keyboard).
THEN, this morning, in some sort of spree induced hangover, and apparently not deterred in the slightest from writing a check to the farrier, I ventured onto SmartPak (why, god why) and saw that the new T-Boots are on sale..
And not like a cheesy $5-off-to-grab-your-attention-sale, a holy-crap-that's-75%-off sort of sale.
Mind you, only the ones in white were marked down, but I was so enamored with the $40 price tag I figured what the hell, and I put them in my cart. Then my visa was taunted by the "qualify for free shipping with only $35 more in purchases" or whatever the number was. It doesn't matter what the number was, because what I read was "find 3 more things you don't really need and you will "save" on shipping!"
So what did I do? I let my visa off it's leash (who are we kidding, it's not on a leash ever) and managed to find some brush cleaner (rather practical), replacement leg straps (VERY practical, I have no idea where Pia is putting all of her leg straps. and some more of my favorite silver gunk for scratches.
BAM! Free shipping. Free shipping and $40 boots!? Amazing.
The sick thing is that my brain is actually convinced that it "saved" money.
In reality, if I "like" the t-boots but don't "love" them, the $40 pair will stay and be functional, and the black set will go back to full price hell where they came from.
And that is what I consider a fairly rational conclusion to a rather irrational extended tack ho bender.
I think I need a glass of wine...
