75 Thoughts Mums Have When Visiting Spotlight

There’s something about shopping that makes me feel all kind of things.

I mean, I’m a mum now but seeing that bright sale sign makes me feel like a little girl on the first day of school! Or that feeling when your pay goes into your account – those feels…but better!

Shopping is definitely therapeutic. But whenever I shop at Spotlight, I suddenly have this weird behaviour…..something just takes over and I can’t stop it!!

1. Oh gawd  I don’t have time to shop today! I’ll just zip in, get what I need and get out!

2. Oh it’s quiet, lucky I came early.

3. I’ll hurry so I can get myself a real coffee before I go home to the kids.
