I started convicted and saying "I can't" but as days gone buy I was starting to go crazy cause everything was so CHEAP that I got to the point where I thought "why can't I buy just 1 or 2 things?" Yup...Disaster train rack! It only took one thing to get me to buy all bunch of things I didn't even need. It was something like this:
"I'll just get this miniature. I need something to remember I was in Rome" = bought 2 of those miniatures + 1 magnet to the fridge door.
"I'll just get in to look for something for my friend's birthday" = got FIVE key chains and a ball with snow inside (I believe I didn't get anything else thanks to my boyfriend who started to say I was getting crazy over that)
"OH, look! Postcards! We should buy one for each" = bought around 7 or 8 postcards + a Rosary for my mum
Even though Rome was my financial disgrace, I love this city and so far nothing can compare to it. And I know I'll go back soon (but not soon enough).
