    Default buying mini's can be like going grocery shopping

    You look at what you bought and look at the bill. Then you say to yourself "How did I spend that much?!? Everything I bought fits into one paper lunch bag!" *sigh* [At least when you buy one of those god-awfully huge monsters you can say AHHH, yes, that's where the $ went.] Heck I didn't even get anything in bloom! I'm soooo weak. Pathetically so, really.
