Doesn't a Carnival of Shopping almost sound like too much fun to bear? I am proud to say my post about my Brazilian shopping mishaps is featured in Become's pocket change section. I love being associated with fun shopping, since I try to associate everything else with fun shopping.
*Travel? Fun shopping and supporting the local economies
*Road trip to the parents' house? Fun on-the-way outlet shopping
*Gas station fill-up? Fun food mart shopping
*Dentist Appointment? Fun dental hygiene accessories shopping
*Party at house of distant acquaintance? Fun secret closet shoe shopping
Okay, that last one? Not really. You can still invite me to those parties. Seriously. I mean it.
