Project 365 Day 53: Striped Top
We went to Ikea yesterday! We started our trip there with a yummy lunch of lamb and meatballs. Just a side note: I super love their meatballs because it is the closest that you can get to a Jollibee patty here in Australia! So yum! After we finished our food, we went to the display floor then the marketplace. For the whole duration, Kimi was restless as he wants to go down from his pram and go by feet. We wanted so much to let him have the opportunity to explore but knowing him we would just end up chasing him and making sure that he does not break something. So to make it up to him, we let him roam endlessly after we have already done our shopping and just enjoying our hotdog and yogurt.
Whenever we plan to go to Ikea, I make sure to create a list of the things that I need to buy beforehand. Why? I do believe in mindful shopping but when I am in Ikea, I do not know, all the mindfulness goes out the window and I end up buying more than we should. Anyway, even though I have a list I still end up buying more than I should but I think it would be so much worse if I fail to create one. Ikea just has that capability to drain your wallet asap when you are not mindful. But in all fairness to us, although we always end up buying more, we only buy what we need. It is just that Ikea has literally everything and it is just so hard to not fall into the trap.
