In Finance

The Toys R Us liquidation has been very upsetting to me and a little hard to process.  I think that I may be in denial about the entire thing and I find myself heading there more often now that I know that it is closing.  Literally, my Toys R Us nostalgia is so high and I find myself buying more toys and spending way too much money in there.
