Who shops when they feel bad for themselves?
Get your hands up. You know you do it too.
I don't shop when I'm frustrated because, really now, have you ever been in a store when frustrated? The public will generally frustrate you even more...
However, I do shop when I'm sad. That's how Target and I developed such a close relationship when Scott was deployed.
One day, after a parent told me that I was not doing my job, this pink sweater fell into my cart at Target. Along with a stack of clearance plates, tortilla chips, and a jar of queso.
That was a good night.
Another time, after another parent conversation that was less than wonderful, I found myself at Target at 10pm. This snow leopard sweater, as well as Mindy Kaling's book, and an extra-large bag of Hershey's Kisses made their way into the basket.
I know I've shown this sweater before. I do really like it, and it was only $15 on clearance.

Do you shop when you're sad? I think I look at it as, "Well, I can't feel worse, so maybe I'll find something to make me feel better!".
We can call that the "Becky-Bloomwood-approach".
