Addictions

Well, I've developed a new addiction and it made me think about how when I get into something, I GET INTO something. I'm not talking about booze, or crack, or anything like that, but my own vises. So I thought I'd make a list of my current addictions:

1) Craigslist. Since moving into the house, I am obsessed with selling tons of our old stuff and buying some new things for cheap. I've made $110! And I bought a fabulous, like new set of counter stools for just $20. $20!!! For two counter stools! And it just so happens they match our floors. Heading out tonight to buy 4 black chairs for $40.

2) As evidenced from the name of my blog, Chai Tea Lattes from Starbucks. I've tried just about every other chain, non-chain, from a box, from powder Chai Tea latte there is and NOTHING compares. This addiction *never* goes away.

3) Zip ties. I had a whole canister of them from Target that had never been used. I came across them in the move and now I'm a zip tying fool. I'm sure this has to do with my crazy anal nature, but whateva, they make me happy.

4) Costco. Ties into the Ramen noodle diet we are taking on with the new house. I get very excited when I find new cheap things there!

5) Roomba!!! Goes hand in hand with #4, as I purchased it at Costco. I love that I can go to bed at night and wake up in the morning to see that the whole downstairs has been freshly vacuumed and I didn't have to lift a finger.

6) Still digging Mint.com. It's a bit scary to see how much we've spent in the last two months, but it keeps it in perspective and helps me juggle if I think our balance is getting too low!

I'm sure there are many more I'm not thinking of at the moment...

Congrats on your sales & finds on Craigslist. (Im finally selling a bunch of crap on ebay after years of talking about it!)

Starbucks Chai...I dont know what they do that's so different...but it's a great thing!

Zip ties...I have velcro versions of those from the Container Store that I use for everything (you should see my bag o chargers when I travel)

What does Annie think of the Roomba?

We run the Roomba at 3 a.m. so Annie is sleeping peacefully with us at that point.

However, she has discovered a new enemy - a blue plastic $1 ball I bought for H at the local CVS. She attacks it like her life depends on it!
