Lately I’ve become aware—okay, it’s been brought to my attention—that I buy stuff I don’t need. My two big weaknesses are Costco and art fairs.

When it comes to Costco, I don’t really need half-gallon can of 3-bean salad, a foam rubber kitchen rug, or a bag of those fabulous dark chocolate-covered Açai berries. I just sort of situationally covet them. Plus the shopping carts at Costco are huge and a 32 ounce bag of Kirkland Cashew Clusters with Almonds and Pumpkin seeds seems a paltry—though highly recommended!—bounty. Do I really need a vat of protein powder? No. The waterproof outdoor chair cushions? No. The double-size pack of Strivectin stretch mark cream? Maybe I do, maybe I don’t, mind your own business.
