Well, I did my shopping and decided to help the economy after all. Just a little. We all have to do our part, you know. For inquiring minds, the catalog that sent me the gift card is Sundance. It was started by Robert Redford and has all sort of gorgeous stuff that makes me say, "Oh, that is so me!" All sorts of artsy and quirky and ridiculously expensive. But, when you add together a sale, a gift card, a free shipping code and shopping the clearance section, I did pretty well. It's a good feeling.
No smugness intended.
