Impulse purchases

A couple of weeks ago we decided it was time to change the sofas in our living room. They were turn and faded and basically looked pretty bad. So I went to an area with many furniture stores of all kinds and started browsing around. End of story is- I did not buy any sofas that day but I did end up buying a gorgeous dinning table!

I find that many times impulse purchases are the best ones I make. Maybe it's because I am not usually a very impulsive buyer. Usually I like to think and look around before I pick something. So when I find something that I love so much that I don't need to look any further, It's got to be great. Or maybe it's just the pleasure of discovering something you were not expecting.

To be honest we were thinking of buying a dinning table sometime in the near future. And when I found this amazing and perfect table, we just decided to do this now rather than later. Nevertheless, I still consider this a rather impulsive purchase as I was not looking to buy a table now but just could not resist it.

I received my dinning table a few days ago and I just love it. So happy I got impulsive and got it. And the sofas? I did find a set I liked eventually but as they were found in a more conventional boring way, they don't get a story of their own, but they do get a picture so that's something too, right?
