How necessary is some spending

July 29th, 2007 at 01:28 pm

Just returned from the grocery store. DH wanted to go with me so even with a list I still spend more when he is with me. Today we bought a Batman movie that he was going to pay for with some birthday money he was given. At the check out he put it with all the other items....What's up with that. Although, I must say that he did not have cash but only a check for his birthday so hoping he will give it to me to put in the bank tomorrow with another deposit i have. Had to get another beetle trap. They are not super expensive and a must for keeping the insects off of some of our plantings. The rest was for actual groceries so I really can't complain too much. I am going to have to break down and put some things on e-bay to build up a money reserve for the next few months as their will be alot of birthdays, property taxes and insurance needs coming up.

What do you do for yourself

It seems like I have no problem making clothing purchases or things for the home but recently and good friend and neighbor convinced me that I needed to do something just for me. My choice has been to have my hair done every six weeks this cost around $80.00 each time but does make me feel good. I also have started getting my nails done every two weeks with a pedicure every three weeks. I know there will be some imput as to what a foolish expense this is and I really can't agree with you more. I have found that this makes me feel better about myself so as long as I can work it into the budget I am going to continue. What do you do for yourself?

Shopping for home items

July 8th, 2007 at 08:18 am

Finally, did not shopping that did not make me feel quilty. When I buy things to brighten up our home it actually makes me feel good. Bought two buffet lamps for our sofa table. Got them both for $50.00 at Trees and Trends. This was a good price considering the prices at other places. That left me with two small lamps that I able to place other places in the house. One was much needed in my office. I have been trying to get it more organized and it needed some extra lighting. Also found that I would use a wooden plate that I found for $10.00 to make a side table out of. It sits upon a large candle holder that I was not using anymmore. I was also able to use of golf fabrice that I had purhased about four years ago to make a backing to display some of hubby's golf markers that he had gotten as gifts. They are now is a nice display case. Don't plan on spending much on groceries this week as we have a freezer full.
