Shopping Surprise

I went out shopping yesterday and was pleasantly surprised to see others were shopping too. I went to my local mall, Target, and the grocery store. At all places, there was limited parking and people were buying! Target was especially busy. There were only 3 shopping carts available and most people at the check-out had full carts. It made me feel really good to be out shopping and to others shopping.

I don’t why people were out, but I do know for myself I’m tired of denying myself. Granted I don’t have as much money as I did when I was employed, but I think it’s okay to spend a little as long as I stay within my means. Perhaps others feel this way too. I’m, also, worried if I don’t shop or eat out, the stores and restaurants I like may go out of business, so I’m doing what I can.
