Yesterday afternoon, Ms. Loonie and I went to the Metro Home Show. We had some coupons for $3 off the cost of admission, so we thought we'd go check out the exhibits. I've never been to the Home Show before, so I wasn't quite prepared for the level of temptation to which I was about to expose myself.
From granite countertops, to hand-made furniture, to state-of-the-art bathroom fixtures, there was no end to the stuff we simply had to buy.
So we bought some crêpes.
We left the show with a book full of business cards for various kitchen and closet installation outfits, and with lots of ideas in our heads for improvements to make to our condo, but we avoided the temptation to make any major impulse purchases.
The costs for the outing:
$18.00 for 2 tickets
$8.90 for 2 crêpes
That's not too shabby, considering we could easily have spent hundreds of dollars on furniture.
Now, let's see if we can avoid diving head-first into an expensive renovation...
