Maybe just one more

Every year I do this. I get everything bought and wrapped for the kids and then I decide that I need one more thing. Just a little something to add to the pile.
But the truth is that what I have already is more than enough and I certainly don't want to start a tradition where the kids are burnt out by the fourth gift and there's still a giant pile to unwrap.

So, why can't I pass up the cute Little Ponies in the 50 cent bin at Goodwill? Why did I pick up the still shrink wrapped video tape that I know the kids will love? At least I have a head start on Easter baskets and birthdays.

Even buying second hand can get out of hand.

I'm having the "just one more" issue at the grocery store. Sure, we still have a large bottle of molasses left over from last year, but buying two more on sale can't hurt...and non-gmo corn starch, Christmas teas and coffee, Texas sweet potatoes, half-price nuts...It's so hard to resist a good deal.
