It is indeed extremely dangerous… to the pocketbook anyway!… to enter the doors of a home-improvement store without a plan of what exactly you are there for. Especially dangerous when both have big plans for improving the living space. We wandered in today after a sushi lunch with the vague plans of getting a hose part and a bag of mortar. What did we end up leaving with after wandering around for an hour? New paint for the front door and new door hardware to match the new door knobs, new light bulbs and attachments for automatic lighting from dusk to dawn, a new tree and a few bags of topsoil to plant it in. Yes, definitely dangerous… Note to self: next time, have a plan! The best irony? When we got home and retrieved the mail from the mailbox, there’s a 10% off coupon we could have used at the exact store we were just at!
