Just a curious question how much do my fellow BEES spend a month on “unecessary” things?
I love to online shop and clothes are my weakness. Those shoes you have to have but dont need , that purse calling out to you haha
Maybe tell us your shopping must have, and how much money you shell out for those items?

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.

- Wedding: February 2015 - Chapel on Base
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.
