I am generally a frugal person, but sometimes I like to by flowers. I used to think it was kind of stupid and frivolous to buy flowers, but now I do it all the time, thanks to Trader Joes $4 boquets. Plus, I like to rationalize that I am supporting the Colombian economy as flowers is one of their largest exports. These particular flowers are from Colombia have lasted almost two weeks and are worth so much more than the $4 they cost. Everytime I see them sitting in the middle of the kitchen table they cheer me up and distract me from the fact that Nutty spends the first 10 minutes of every morning trying to chew on my feet while I eat breakfast.
