I’m sitting in a diner above waiting to eat a grilled cheese sandwich with tomato, onion, and fries…mmm.
So what happens when you plan a trip to the desert that falls through at the last minute?
You take your brand new West Elm credit card that has a $3,000 limit on it, and decide to totally revamp your apartment!
A few weeks ago I was at West Elm. I do not LOVE West Elm. I personally consider it a step above Ikea. I have issues with buying a desk for close to $300, only to realize that I’m supposed to put it together myself…I mean…come on. It’s a slightly nicer version of Ikea. If I’m paying THAT much for a piece of furniture it needs to come to me assembled.
I’ve never bought ANYTHING full price at West Elm, and never plan on it. So last week when I was there killing time and buying some super cheap-o stuff that was on clearance, they asked me if I wanted to apply for a credit card…”Sure! Why not?” In just moments I was approved!
So I get the card in the mail a few days ago, and in my bored state of my mind today I decided I’d go in and buy something awesome for myself…low and behold, I didn’t really find anything I liked at all…and certainly nothing that I was willing to max out the card for. So I left empty handed. It’s ironic I have two credit cards to stores I don’t even really like, but I suppose that’s a good thing and avoids shopping and debt dilemmas.
My other computer is still broken. This has turned out to be a very good thing. I’m rarely online, but more productive in actually writing things, and leaving the house more-even though my spree to West Elm could’ve been disasterous…oh well…at least I don’t have an “Apple” credit card.
