If The Shoe Fits — (I GO BUY!!!)
Posted January 12, 2006on:
I don’t know what has gotten over me the afternoon of Tuesday. While Jerry and I were at Banilad Town Center taking a break after doing some errands (remittances to government agencies), we saw the sale that the Adidas outlet was having. There were rubber shoes on sale for less than 50% of its original price!
At first we just walked up to it to see if there was anything that was priced for a steal. The first few minutes, nothing caught our fancy. But moving on to the men’s section, Jerry saw a pair of white Duncan that Matthew has been pining for. From the original P5500 list price, it was now down to a very tempting P2700+. I automatically thought of the next important occasion where it was fit to be given as a gift. And almost like an instant, I thought of Matthew’s upcoming graduation. (Note: Justifying my action is a classic sign of impulsive shopping.) It is still two months away but I thought I could buy this pair now and just keep it hidden until the occasion it’s intended for finally arrives. Hehehe.
We ordered for a pair in Matthew’s size (9.5 US) but we didn’t stop there (Now, this is a really serious sign of impulsive buying!). I tried to look for something for Kyle as well but there was none. Then, I soon found a dark navy (with matte gold stripes) trainers that I thought looked cute on Jerry. It was down from P4500 to P2200. I told him if it fits him, I’d buy it as well. It did look good on him (of course, heh!). So now I just maxed my card for P4900 for 2 pairs of Adidas shoes. I need help… I am such a shopaholic!
