Of Thrifting and Sales

Aseara m-am apucat sa imi fac curat in garderoba si am realizat un lucru – eu nu prea mai fac shopping, eu reciclez. Si cand zic reciclez ma refer la thrifting, dar la noi nu exista traducerea acestui termen, pentru ca la noi nu prea exista momentan actiunea la care se refera notiunea de THRIFT  – “The quality of using money and other resources carefully and not wastefully”. “Thrifting refers to the act of shopping at a thrift store, flea market, garage sale, or a shop of a charitable organization, usually with the intent of finding interesting items at a cheap price.”

In principiu, singura forma conventionala de shopping pe care o mai fac este in perioada reducerilor, desi mi se intampla rar sa imi cheltui toti banii pe reduceri. Acesta este unul din acele rare moment, care ma lasa intr-o pozitie destul de dificila pentru ca: A. mai am macar doua saptamani de supravietuit pana la urmatorul salar si B. simt o nevoie patologica sa thriftui, acum!. Da, thrifting-ul si reducerile creeaza dependenta. Si desi sunt foarte constienta de adevaratele probleme in viata si societate, lipsa baniilor pentru shopping fiind o nevoie destul de frivola, desi apreciez cu adevarat tot ce am si detin, nu-mi da pace intrebarea – Sa imi comand perechea aceea divina de cizme pe care am vazut-o acum cateva minute online, la reducere?

I don’t really shop anymore, I thrift! And that has become my mantra in the past 6 months. The only form of conventional shopping I do is the online one and I rarely spend all my money on sales. This is one of those times, which leaves me in quite a difficult position because: A. I’ve got at least two more weeks of survival till my next payment and B. I have a pathological need to thrift! Yes, thrifting and sales are pretty much addictive. And while I am very aware that shopping money is far from being a real problem in anyone’s life, while I do appreciate everything that I have and hold, I can’t stop myself from asking: – Should I buy that divine pair of boots I just saw online?
