I do the same thing- For example, I DESPARATELY need new boots. Mine are officially stained with salt and they’re smelly and waterlogged. But I keep telling myself I can make it till the end of winter, because it’s an unnessessary expense. UMMM EXCUSE ME. I live in Ohio. Boots are a legitimate expenditure. And really, my wedding is FOREVER away. Those 40 bucks aren’t going to make ANY difference. But i get paranoid.

I’m glad you treated yourself to something nice, though!!

@Miss Fish: You definitely deserve new boots living where you do! ::sniff:: I miss living in Youngstown!

It’s okay, you can treat yourself, just don’t let the treats become a constant thing!

Oh girl- preach to the choir- I am in the same boat as you!  It goes so far as me feeling bad last week treating myself to starbucks instead of the free, burnt office coffee.  I know that this too will pass, and I need to remind myself that 99% of the time I am really good about it- it could be other way around, I could be spend crazy!

Now go and get your nails done!!!

We got into such a habit of saving every penny when we were planning that even now, close to two years later, I still feel like I’m doing something bad when we eat out for dinner (for context, we eat out once a month, if that).

I really think you do need to give yourself a treat every now and again, or else the “money saving mindset” can really take over!
