Hi! My name is Rachel and I have a problem buying Star Wars things!

Roughly two weeks before I went to Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, Florida, I got my tax return. My mom sent me a text that read, verbatim, “I would advise you put it into savings then so you don’t just blow it.” This was code for, “RACHEL STOP SPENDING MONEY ON STAR WARS THINGS.” And I was like, okay mom. And I heeded her advice for like, a week and then I found myself at Star Wars Celebration and well:

This brings us to today, May the 4th, the (un)official best Star Wars day of the year. There are *so many Star Wars sales* right now, and I know how much of my tax return I still have. You have no idea how tempted I am to buy everything I see on the internet right now. It is hard for me, guys.

But, since I know my mom is watching my spending with great interest —  just like how Palpatine watched Anakin’s career with great interest — I have to refrain from buying everything. Instead, here’s just a nice list of things I’d really like to buy, but I won’t, mom.
