- Wedding: September 2009
I have a problem.
I shop…but I don’t go to stores, I go to amazon.com. Because they have great deals…and I rationalize it to myself that if I bought it in the store it would be X amount more expensive…help me out hive! smack some sense into me! I think i’m suffering from post wedding/house buying shopping…
See, for the past several years, I’ve saved and penny pinched for countless big purchases…buying a house, paying for our wedding…and I’ve lived by a strict budget since I think my mid-20’s…but now that all of that is over, I don’t necessarily live by a “budget”…I mean we have a set household budget that both me and hubby contribute to for household and savings…but we also have individual accounts that we can basically ‘do’ anything we want to with…and I find myself literally doing what I want to…
200 bag/pair of shoes that I would have balked at a couple of years ago? no problem!
impromptu shopping spree? of course!
and Amazon.com is the worst culprit…I feel like I should be saving this money (it is a recession!) and I started direct depositing some away in my savings account…but I still spend…HELP!!!
Did you find your shopping/spending habits change after you got married? or is it just me?
