Antony needs retail therapy!

Well, June is the famous EOFYS (End of Financial Year Sale or mid-year sale) across the country. And as a matter of fact, I've been pretty busy these days, and I haven't been to Myer or David Jones for any mid-year sales.

As I mentioned a number of times, I am a good bargain hunter (somehow Don fails to believe that), I either compare the price or wait until the sale before I buy some cheapish items. The mid-year sales around the country is one of the two major sales of a year. The other one is the Boxing Day Sale (post-Christmas sale).

So how am I? I still can't get the needed retail therapy done... A different kind of being desperate I take.

Also, if you are smart enough to use your credit card for shopping, don't be fooled by the dirty tactics from (usually smaller) retailers. Insist on using your credit cards and choose to sign instead of using PIN. (See this earlier blog entry: dirty tactics of some small retailers)

(to Don: Antony is poor.)

more June 2010 blogs. (or 2010 blogs)
from iTunes Store:
My Financial Adviser suggested that I need to do some spending as March 2012 is looming, and Centrelink will be ascertaining whether I qualify for the Federal Govt's Pension. (Social Security, DON)
Trouble is, not a lot of things I need to buy, as you well know I am the anti-christ of retail therapy!
However, there must be some more gadgetry out there that will give meaning to your life Antony?

Of course, I've been thinking about getting some photography equipments but I haven't got time for shopping and waiting for price to come down. And besides the poor man's tablet (a.k.a. iPad), I haven't bought anything major this year.
I would suggest you get yourself a Mac mini (to Don's dismay) with this link and make your life easier.
