What did you buy today? I’m curious to find out! In this meme, you have to list four things you bought during a day.
This was Saturday for me and my wallet.
|The first thing I usually do in the morning is to buy the newspaper. I read the Globe And Mail and La Presse, a Quebec newspaper. I’m a news junkie, and I read the newspaper from start to finish. The only thing I skip is the sport section!
Along with my newspaper, I also bought some bus ticket for my morning trip to downtown. I hate not to have a sheet of bus tickets with me, because they are sometimes hard to find (not all convenience stores have them) and the fare is a dollar more if I pay the driver. I was lucky that day because I bought an “old” sheet of ticket. The price just raised on July 1st but you can use up your “old” tickets up to 2009 I think.
|My second purchase of the day was at Roots, a popular Canadian brand. I went to the factory store, as it’s much cheaper, and bought a nice teeshirt for $12.99. I love Roots teeshirt. The quality is pretty good and the design doesn’t fade with time. Plus, they are conformable for the summer.
I haven’t bought much clothes this year but I was quite happy with this one… although it’s another teeshirt. Are you like me? I have so many tops but not that many skirts or pants. I guess tops almost always fit… whereas it’s just a pain to try on pants before finding a right one. And don’t get me started on low-rise pants… these ones drive me nuts.
|Then, I bought some nail polish. In summer, I wear sandals everyday and I like colorful nails. I usually don’t bother to put nail polish on my fingernails because it wears off so quickly, but it lasts quite a while on my toenail, so it worth it. Plus, it’s fun.
Back in school, I used to do my nails quite often, sit in front of the T.V. I just don’t have time anymore… But I do take care good of my feet because I walk a lot. I hate it when women wear great shoes but have ugly neglected nails.
|Finally, I stopped by the supermarket to pick up tonight’s diner. I bough some wholegrain pastas and some tomato sauce. I usually steam some veggies (zucchinis, peppers, onions, mushroom) and add the sauce last in the pan. I cook the pasta separately and pour the sauce over it. Add some parmesan and voilà! The whole thing takes about 25 minutes and it makes a great diner.
I try to cook as much as I can to avoid take out and junk food. I don’t spend much time in the kitchen but I know a few healthy & quick recipes.
Now, I’d like to you what you bought today! You can twist this meme as you like, there are no rules.

Have fun and… don’t spend too much!
