    Going through Customs earlier ....

    Customs Agent: What is the value of the goods you are bringing back?
    Mike: Just under $400.
    CA: Each?
    Me: No, combined.
    CA: Really?

    I'm sure it shows up on the screen that at least three times/year we cross with our allowed maximum exemption, even confessing to being over the limit once in a while ....

    And then the one time we go to NYC, a true world shopping destination; we buy squat.

    Without the receipts in front of me, we more or less bought: souvenir pics from ESB and 1WTO - $75. Souvenirs from ESB - $80. Souvenirs from Rockefeller Centre (t-shirt and chocolate) - $90. Nightgown from the Plaza - $70. T-shirt and hat from MSG - $25. Judge t-shirt from Modell - $32.

    I am just now remembering the two golf shirts from Connolly's pub, which takes us over $400, but under $500. I accidentally threw out the receipt because the shirts had just added to our dining bill.

    We spent another $200 at Wegman's on groceries. None of that counts toward your exemption though, except the beer.

    It's not that I wasn't willing to spend money, but there was nothing I "had to have". I would have bought a couple of new Pandora charms. I perfectly envisioned exactly what I wanted! Problem is, Pandora has no vision when it comes to classy (using that term loosely here) NYC-themed charms. No ESB. No Chysler Building. And Lady Liberty was really just an undefined lump. Very disappointing.

    I've put on a couple of pounds, so no clothes. I hate clothes shopping at the best of times anyway.

    Anyway, long story short - I'm probably getting another Dooney next month! So ha!

    Oy. Goal to finish. I love NYC as a visitor. Timing be darned. My roadtrip was again at the same time as @JenniferS and I've fallen behind. Goal in the next few days to relive her trip.
