I didn't quite follow my rules on this shopping trip, but I did fairly well. I passed up a figurine of Kristen (American Girl) that I normally would have thought seriously about buying.
I bought 6 dress shirts for Isaac, 1 skirt for Melody, 4 pairs of shorts for the girls, 1 pair of dress shoes for Isaac, and 1 top for me (that wasn't on my list) for $31. That wasn't too bad.
Isaac bought himself two games at the Norway thrift store. The girls found birthday gifts for each other.
We went to the Dollar Tree and I bought a couple of things not on the list. I spent $4 for things for the girls birthday party on Monday. I was going to try to not buy anything extra for the party, but I'm not too upset about $4.
I didn't buy any groceries that weren't on my list, which was quite remarkable.
I'll write more about the birthday party on Monday after we have the party.
