Are there any mind games that you play with your SO to get your purchases by ??? Although my DH is now onto me....mine goes like this: I bring home a new purchase....instead of telling him it was cheaper than it actually was, I quadruple the price. As he starts to freak out ...I tell him that I am just kidding, and bring the price down by about 1/3. By the time we get to the actual price of whatever it is...he is so relieved that it wasn't any of the before mentioned prices...that he lets it slide ! He heard me telling this tale on a night out cocktailing, so he is wise to my games , but it was my plan of action for years.....how about you ladies....any funny ways to get your purchases in the door???? I am looking for new ideas!!!!
