I've reached a new level of feeling silly - I now am the proud owner of a little black push cart. I bought this a few weeks ago because of a larger than anticipated fabric store splurge and could not carry everything home. And, I'm glad I did, it's gotten to the point where carrying everything to the post office isn't working, and this little guy is coming in handy.
Which leads me to something else that's been on my mind - getting a car. I've never owned a car - and up until recently it hasn't felt that necessary to have one in the city (especially not when we lived right down town). But now that we're a little further out I keep thinking about this possibility, and how handy it would be for weekend trips or various errands. I don't think we'd use it more than a few times a week, but I think it could be worth it. Have you ever owned a car in the middle of the city? Was it worth it? Luckily there's free (and very safe) on street parking in front of our house so I wouldn't have to stress over where to park (unlike our previous home). I know I'd still use my push cart to get to the post office though, as it's only a few blocks away - and plus I'm kind of getting attached to it in a super dorky way.
