More Spending

May 15th, 2017 at 10:19 am

And the spending just continues. I think it started a week ago when I got a haircut. My local salon had a deal where you buy a $100 gift card and get an additional $20 added on to it. It's my regular spot, so there went that $100 on top of the haircut I'd already paid for. Then there were the sheets on Friday. Then there was $150 at Costco. Yesterday we had a lovely Mother's Day brunch. Some of this was a bit excessive, but yikes, it seems like a lot right now. I was hoping for a NS day today, but DD really needs some shorts and honestly, a good amount of new clothes. She's grown three inches in the last year, and not much fits.

Small economies (very small in retrospect) include taking home food from the dept picnic on Saturday, laundry on the line today, and a few small rebate checks. UK planning continues, and we've managed to wangle an invitation for two nights with friends outside Cambridge.

I'm determined to get my grades completely ready today, although I must plan my evening adjunct class too. I SO want to turn them in before I head to Door County with BFF on Wednesday (where I'll just spend more.) Sigh.

    Isn't that the way of it sometimes...lots of spending all at once. I'm sure you are still being wise with your money even if you spend!

    Well, your gift card was an investment in savings, your sheets a necessity (and you got them at a good price, right?) and the Mother's Day brunch was a worthy celebration. I wouldn't feel too bad. Door County with BFF sounds lovely.

    Thank you, CCF and CB. Spending will indeed abate a bit soon. And it did end up being a NS day after all. DD is ok with a couple pairs of shorts from last year.

    I think the spending goes in cycles. I will go for awhile and barely spend and suddenly there's a period where it seems that's all I do. I'd say the spending was not exactly crazy. Sheets are kind of important and you got a great deal on the hair cut card.
