I find it so odd that when you know you have some money coming your way and you plan out how you’re gonna spend it–and when you finally get the money you’re being like a scrooge with it! Haha that’s me right now. I had made my list and checked it twice and now I’m finding it hard to part with! So I knew that I wanted my makeup brushes, and my MAC makeup, my philosophy products, my ojon for my hair, a couple of wigs, and a few other makeup items and my new handbag. I just now ordered my wigs today. It’s like I want wigs, but I don’t like to part with my money! I want makeup I want clothes, etc but it’s hard for me. And I know why….it’s what I call they Mommy Money Syndrome which for me is, the fact that I’m a mom, it’s hard for me to spend money on myself. I can spend money on my kids left and right (and I have already!) I can buy for the household-no problem. But to spend money on myself–that’s a whole nother story. I’ve already spent $100 on clothes for the kids at Kohl’s this weekend. Yeah I did that mainly bc they had their Kohl’s cash promo–and so now I have $20 to spend when I go in there again (maybe today on my lunch…) and I’ll probably spend that on them too. I will try to avoid their section like the plague, but it’s just difficult to spend money on me, myself and I.
The bright side is that I always try to score a deal. And most of the items that I’ve purchased for myself have been from ebay so I’m saving money. I was doing price comparisons and I’ve saved $100s over if I would’ve purchased from QVC. And QVC isn’t the highest price! So I love that and it takes some of the guilt away. But let me get back to my online shopping before I head to work. **Of course I don’t feel so bad when I come home to packages! I LOVE THAT!!!
