I practiced great self control inside a Bed Bath & Beyond this past weekend. Maybe you read my tweet: "Bed, Bath & Beyond, more like the evil place with everything I didn't know I need." You walk in and instantly feel like you need to buy..well, everything. Stuff like: bags that preserve your produce, wire thingys that hold your sponge neatly in the sink, and all the 'As Seen on TV' stuff you can (or can't) handle.
My teenager follows me around dutifully because I wouldn't let her stay in the car and listen to the radio; "but Mom, I'm supporting your industry," she'll use against me. I won't let an animal stay in a hot car, and I'm not letting my kid.
We travel through the store in search on the two items I think I really need. My daughter is not a fan of shopping, and thankfully pushes me through the isles, reminding me that I, "don't need that." That is, until we come to the iPod gadget sections, then I remind her that she doesn't need any more of that stuff. Besides, we gotta head back out to the car to and 'support my industry.'
