Tea buying gone wild!

I just got back from Sarasota after buying just about all the tea in town. I feel like I supported all the tea shops. It was so much fun! I really had a hard time getting it all in my already overcrowded suitcase.

:O That’s a lot of tea! But hey…you can never have too much tea! :P
Hope you enjoy it! :D

I agree with that sentiment, you can never have too much tea, but you can spend too much on tea.

Exactly! Vacation doesn’t count! But… I’m going on vacation again in August. But that will be with my husband so I will be more restrained.

If you mail some to me, it will fit in your suitcase better. Otherwise, you have a fun excuse for a party. (I’d make scones if I lived closer.)

Uh oh! My husband has checked the credit card on line. Damn the internet for their speed and efficiency! Now I’ve got some explaining to do. Guess I won’t be buying any tea for a while….

You MUST get a credit card under your own name that he does not have internet access to. That’s what I do for all my tea purchases! (sneaky laugh)

Make sure it’s paperless statement. My hubby was on alert every 20th of the month. It was like race who gets the mail first. I decided its too much of a fun. Paper less is the answer.
