It's TAX SEASON! And I am one of those that get theirs done as soon as the W-2 is printed! We went to have them done today. This year we aren't getting back as much as the previous years, but anything extra coming into this house is GOOOOOD!
Okay, I bet some of you are wondering (don't laugh. There night be one person who cares) what I did with that 40 bucks, and I've been meaning to update you.
So here were the options.
1. Blow it on a purse
2. Save it for that Barry's Bootcamp video I "need". ($60, I think)
Well I took a shopping trip. I had a couple of Catos gift cards I wanted to get rid of before they added themselves to the "closing businesses list" and my cards became obsolete. Well,I was able to buy me a few things, a couple of tops and a pair of jeans that don't really fit, but I am aspiring to be able to wear in a few weeks.
Then came my hunt for a purse. Now, they didn't have anything that I thought was me at Catos so it was on to Marshall's, who usually has great purses at FABULOUS discounted prices. To my surprise, I didn't find anything. One in the $70 range, but nothing around $40. Okay, TJ Maxx gave me the same problem. So, I went to Kohl's and there was a sale on ALL the purses. And, after searing through the wide variety, this was the one I had in hand, in black.
As I waited in line, I just couldn't do it. Spend the money on me, I mean. Not without guilt. Not when I needed some things from the grocery store and there was no more money left to spend. So I quickly put the purse back and left the store WITHOUT. THE. PURSE!
Darn me and my guilt issues. Why do I have to be such a mom! When will I stop feeling guilty for shopping for myself and being HAPPY about it???
So ladies, don't be like me. If you can, splurge on yourself. Make yourself smile every now and then. Get your nails done. Buy yourself something cute. Be FABULOUS! If only for one day!
