So, I saved a nice amount of money. I have more time to work online as a VA since switching careers – which means more money, ecstatic! More spending ….. not so ecstatic! That is exactly what I did increase my payment on some bills, purchased necessary house items, treated myself to some salon/spa services and then these random shopping trips.
Almost daily my frugalite and Princess personality buttheads. The frugalite in me monitors how much I’m spending, puts money in savings, invest, and plans for the future so is happy every time I do not spend.
Well, a few weeks ago I went to macys thanks to a great sales associates who keeps me in the loop when a too good to pass up sale is happening. If you are familiar with Macy*s you know they famous for a sale very other week. While in reality they only have about 5-6 phenomenally deeply discounted sales yearly and this was one of them.
So I knew I wanted a pair of sandals, maybe a skirt or bcbg affirmations bracelets. Unfortunately, none of the bcbg bracelets I wanted was on sale, nor do I find a skirt I liked will I did but it was on in no way a sale.
Accessories and Shoes From Macys
I did purchase rampage sandals and flip flops $9.99 each, a skinny belt could not find the price tag so gave me the sale price of $5.99. Wonderful and then these other unplanned purchases – Yes they were good deals and The Princess in me could not help herself Vince Camatto wedges for $44 (originally $112), Scarf $7.99, cute cropped tee $7.99 and bathing suit top $14.99 originally $24.00 albeit (I do not like the fit even though I tried it on before buying) One of this things were the price is right and its cute so you thinking I’ll make it work- ehhh I just think the fit was working for my ample bosoms .
So did I spend more then I planned heck yea (not to mention I went to Tj max right after and purchased more items). However, other then the bikini top I do not have buyers remorse and I can return the top with no problem.
My Frugalite persona has been high for the past few weeks because after that min shopping spree a few more entailed mainly for household items some were decorative most were linens ( you can never have to many of those) but still – It’s not a good look where I have to dip into my savings to buy groceries for last week.
I did pay down my credit card as well so taking a bit from savings was not to bad – Have to say what I can to make me feel better 🙂
