I went shopping last night and spoiled my baby I swear I only intended to buy her a few things and ended up with half a cart full... How does this happen you ask?? Well it starts out with well she needs some of this and this and this and omg she would love this and this too.. Well I can't choose I will get both. Then there was more she has got to have this and thats.. Almost 70 dollars later and I was like shes is going to be so excited... I didn't even bat and eye when the clerk ask me for the money which is strange for me because I am huge on saving money and being a frugal. Has this happen to you gals/guys??

All the time!! :D My guys have all the cool toys from the local pet shops, all the cool toys from the few aussie online stores, and now as many cool toys as i can make myself because i've bought all the cool toys from everywhere else. :p These little feather-butts are just too cute not to spoil! Who cares if it burns through all our money.

Well before we got Earl, me, my mum & sister went to Pets At Home. We got him a toy with 3 circles joined together, and it had a bell on the end. We also went to some other stores, and got him a swing, another toy, a little toy shaped like a house with mirrors as windows, and we put a clothes line peg in the cage he loves that too. :D

Last night when we cleaned the cage out, we swapped all the toys around and made one. On the blinds at the bottom, to hold them together is a string with beads attached to it. We cut a few strands off and tied about six together. Earl & Little Bill love it :D:D

And we have bought them a new toy for christmas LOL! :):) I can't resist, there are so many nice ones! :D

Yup, happens to all of us. I know I go for their seed and always come out with something extra. I tried to limit my trips to the petstore but it never works out..lol

hehe... I had to laugh at this one welcome to the world of owning a tiel :D, you know your hooked and there spoiled when you put as much thought and care into what you buy them as you do your own kids, when I went out to the pet store to find christmas presents for mine I put as much thought into what they would like as anyone else I bought for, its amazing how attached you become to them and see things and think oh yeah they would love that I have to get it.

Ever gone to the pet store for supplies and come out with another bird? This has happened to me. I have to go in telling myself don't buy another bird. I love them so much but there is only so much room in my house.

Looks like I am not the only one, who goes in a pet store, and comes out with things that we really don't need for our birds :D LOL!!
