Did You Hear the Clunk?

February 6th, 2016 at 11:01 am

That would be me falling off the NS wagon with a loud clunk. I knew Bath would pose some temptations, and I knew exactly what they would be, Three years ago I bought my favorite ankle boots at a shoe store; they're hands down the cutest most comfortable boots ever. And Bath is full of lovely shops as it's such a luxury area. I guess, in retrospect, it wasn't all that bad. The day trip was paid for, the baths were fabulous even though it was sixth time through them, I had planned for 11GBP for lunch and spent 9 and ended up taking half my lunch home for dinner. But the clunk was the boots.

They're so cute, less than half price, super soft and so comfortable. They were 65GBP which is about $95. Today I've got the rugby match which will require topping my Oyster transport card. After rugby I'm going to stay in and work and have plenty of groceries for the weekend--although I could use some muesli and fruit. Who knows? Maybe I can shave expenditures down the next few weeks to make up for it. But I love them.

    NS is difficult - and so is resisting great finds! But honestly, when you find something that really sparks joy for you and you'll get your use out of it, then I think the money is well spent. The whole point of saving and being smart about your finances is so you can afford the things you really love. That's what money is for, right?

    Show us a picture. And I think spending on stuff you'll use even boots is worth it. Good footware can't be measured.

    It's okay. We know you have the money and it sounds like the boots are a great investment in something you will wear and enjoy.
