Forget the shrink, get me a budget!

I've been shopping a lot lately, and it's kind of bad. So bad that I haven't looked at my bank balances because I really don't want to see what the Visa balance is. So bad that I let Tyler buy, knowing that the upcoming HELOC will make it all a poof of air....poof.

This week...
1. New Coach purse (necessity?/gift!)
2. New oven (necessity)
3. New makeup (necessity?)

4. 2 new bookcases (redesign of living room)
5. New dining room table (redesign of dining area)

A week ago...
6. New TV/Blu-Ray/Digital Box (redesign of living room)

7. 2 new loveseats (redesign of living room)
8. New area rug (redesign of living room)
9. New window in bathroom (necessity)
10. New door (lets air in, cold in this city, necessity)
11. Microwave trim kit for new toaster oven (TO was a gift and needs to go somewhere, the only space is over the oven)

I think I'll be done then, just in time for Christmas shopping. Perhaps I should reconsider working part-time?

ALL Needs!!! Lol!

Have fun! Redecorating is soo much fun!

Enjoy your purse! You'll use it every day so it's worth it. I got a Louis Vuitton a year and a 1/2 ago and i've used it almost every single day. Therefore justifying the cost. Then when we were in banff a few weeks ago, I got the wallet!! yippee!

If you ever need a shopping buddy, let me know! I'd love to go with you!

I can see by your list of "necessities" that you are very good at justifying to yourself - aren't we all! My weakness is children's clothing - Gymboree, Naartjie, and Orchestra and I am very good at justifyng how a six year old NEEDS three bathing suits and a three year old NEEDS another purse to match another new line of clothing!!!
