pound foolish

I'm having a hard time deciding whether the four dollars I'd save with an educational discount is worth giving up for the instant gratification for buying some gadgets at the apple store. on the other hand the thing I really want is discounted $20 at the apple site so the thing I really want I must get an educational discount on and as long as I'm doing that then I might as well order these other things and save the extra $4, right?

but that would give me no shopping goal for the day. and I need something like a shopping goal although I guess I could stay home and read one of the many books I've bought while out shopping. or I could take one to a cafe and read there with my headphones on to drown out whatever obnoxious music is playing in the cafe. my therapist suggested reading in places besides my house if I keep falling asleep reading in my house. this is something to consider. I've never fallen asleep in public but there's a first time for everything.
