I have put myself on a budget of $300 a month, I shop when Im stressed. It can be for anything from drinks to clothes to house items. If I go out with my husband it’s joint expense not included in my budget.

We have been buckling down and really saving for a down payment on a house, so I spend as little money on myself as humanly possible.  I still splurge on my dog though.  He still gets his treats and toys.    

Speaking of that, I should really budget in an eyebrow wax and a hair cut haha.

$0, everything I buy is necessary!  I neeeeed those new shirts, and bags and shoes!!  😀

I can go a a few months without buying anything, but I can’t resist sales and deals sometimes or just feel the urge to buy new tops.  I buy maybe 1 new purse a year, every 4 or 5 years I splurge for a desginer purse.  1-2 pairs of jeans a year.  Then a few tops every month.  A new pair of shoes every few months.  An new jacket or tablet or phone or something type splurge a year.  Probably comes out to about $250-$350 a month.  We don’t set a budget so I’m not really sure what it all adds up to.

I am fortunate that my Love allows me to be a stay at home mom.  I allow myself $100.00 a week.  That covers my lunches and purchases.  Some weeks I spend $10 and others I spend my full $100. I don’t necessarily spend more than that a week.  He says if it makes me happy I should be able to buy it.   I also use my “allowance” to buy him something but, truthfully it’s spent on our girls or myself.  Ironically,  I said I only wanted a 5k budget for our wedding.   I won’t spend more than that.  I will add I normally don’t spend as much lately because we will be traveling to Colorado for Christmas and will need new tires on our Suburban plus the hotel.  My children are 5&6 and I don’t want to stay with his parents who are in their 80’s.  I don’t want to stress them too much.  I did buy a Coach wallet Wednesday.  It was hot pink and I had to have it.
