• I don’t think I’ve bought one single thing this year without going back, looking at it and trying it on at least twice this year.

    It’s not just I want to get the best deal, but I don’t want to make the wrong choice – I don’t trust my memory and I’m getting increasingly more indecisive.

On different days, of course.
