I’ve often wondered how much others earn.
Because they can afford to shop till they drop whereas we only shop when there is a need: broken school shoe sole, tight jeans and shirt, school performance and a school/family event where clothes we don’t have in the closets should be worn.
New bag? I still have bags I haven’t used yet. Unbranded. So what? The budget for a new bag which was a birthday gift from the hubby is still untouched.
New shoes? The pairs I use are still decent except my running shoes where one has the sole detached. I got a running event in three weeks so I think I need to get a new pair.
New clothes? As long as there are no big holes and clothes don’t look too shabby, I can hold off getting new clothes. The kids wear uniforms most of the time so we just make do with what they have except when it’s too awkward to wear jeans and shirts that are too tight.
One thing though, we don’t shop if we can’t afford because the thought of having to think about payday loans is something I don’t particularly want to be stressed with.
And yes, groupon sites are sites I’d look into again and again. Who knows, I might get good deals there. I already did and in fact, I still have to blog about it.
