Like father, like daughter

I'm definitely related to my dad.

We like to tease my dad, because when he sees a good deal on something he needs, he stocks up. I remember one time we were shopping for pants for my mom and she found some that she liked that were on sale, and he was trying to talk her in to buying like 10 pairs, because, if you like them and they're on sale, then you might as well buy a lot, because you'll need them eventually, right?

Also, if you send my dad to Costco to buy flour, beware. You just might get 500 pounds.

But, when it comes down to it, I'm the same way. Some of you may have heard about e.l.f.'s great sale on all their makeup, since they were bought by Nordstrom's. We're talking $1.00 per item. Um, hi. Makeup is dang expensive.

I don't wear it a ton, because Tom quite frankly likes me better without, but I like it, so I do wear it a couple times a week. But did I let that stop me? Oh no.

By the time I made it through all the pretty options, I had something like 60 items in my shopping cart. Which equals $60. I think I could maybe get 4 things of mascara for that normally, so really, why should I not go for it? Plus, using the coupon code CAROLINA saved me $7.50 which more than covered shipping.

So, I guess I can't tease my dad, but I can boast about how I got such a good deal on all the makeup I'll ever need for the next 15 years.

Hey, tell me what you think of the makeup--I got a bunch a few months ago and I can't decide if I like it or hate it or both. Muah!

That is a sale I'm totally jealous of! You totally scored and I don't blame you for stocking up!
