I really WANT to go on a splurge, but I’m making myself sit on my hands until we have saved up somre more money for the wedding. it’s my birthday in just over a week, so hopefully that will scratch the itch for a while. 

And it’s not like I even need anything, i just want to go shopping!

I work in the city a block from Saks and every other great store including a huge Zara, Gucci, LV, etc. I make an unnecessary purchase at least once a week! Lol. Oh well

ohmariemarie:  DH and I just bought a house, so we’re in a spending freeze right now also…! But I did just buy two Kate Spade Wallets and a ton of nail polish… but that’s it until we close in September…! We have to go home for a wedding and a Baptism at the beginning of August, so we’re going to have to be on our best behaviour not to overspend while we’re gone!


Sometimes you do need to do a little something for yourself though… 🙂

I’m still in the middle of my splurge lol! I just bought a Robert Matthew wallet that you can fit your cell phone in. It was $149. I got it to go with the Michael Kors purse I’m going to buy tomorrow!  The purse is $298. I need a new purse for the fall/winter. I bought a nice new long black winter coat at the end of the winter & I think these will look really nice with it!

I bought three Gucci purses the day after FI bought one. I got the same version he got, but in leather. They were great deals though. I think we got all four for less than $500.

We just bought a house, and are wedding saving. So all spare income should go to the house maintenance and savings.

I bought a Clarisonic Mia2 and $175 and 1 month later, I’m convinced it’s the best purchase I’ve made all year. 

Next splurge is going to be about $100-150 in materials for some house DIY decor.

countingstars:  where did you get four gucci purses for $500?! I’ve been eyeing a few vintage ones and they’re all over $1k even for the smallest sizes.

Frye boots $175. 

Michael Kors purse $265 BUT I returned a more expensive purse my husband gave me for my birthday and another $50 gift from my mom, so really it’s like I made money on that one. 

Random crap at Target $60

bkrocks13:  I got them from a local liquidation store. They are all brand new and authentic. 

My FI has been splurging a lot on paintball gear and gaming. He spent $1,000 in 3 weeks on guns and parts, etc. Men.

I’m turning thirty in a few days. I bought myself an antique 2 carat diamond dome ring. Oops.  I only turn 30 once.
