When was the last time you spent over $100 on something just for YOU?

There have been a few times I have spent that much on my kids for different things, but I can't even remember the last time I spent that much money on myself - I think I would feel like I wasted it.... what about you?

  • I have a very difficult time spending money like that on myself. I'm such a bargain shopper when it comes to myself. I can't even remember the last time I treated myself to something over $100.

  • I got new glasses a couple of months ago, and they were more than $100. I've had a couple of pairs of shoes that I've paid more than $100 for, because my poor feet hurt and I was looking for something comfortable enough to be able to stay on my feet to accomplish my tasks. I don't think I've ever spent that much money on myself for anything else. I have gotten some things that originally cost that much, but they were on clearance when I got them. Last summer, I got a $110 pair of pants for $10. Now, that's a bargain, and I was really proud of myself.

  • Well, my SO got me and IPOD for Valentines Day. Then he liked it so much he wanted one so I told him to buy another one and we would trade (I wanted a different color) and that would be my gift to him, I would "compensate" him for it. So in essence, it was like we bought our own gifts!

  • I spent $400 on myself yesterday on ColdwaterCreek.com!! I never do that and I do feel guilty, but honestly, I have nothing to wear. I bought mostly tops. I still need to go to Kohl;s and get some capris. It was fun, I can't wait to get everything!

  • There's never any money left for me to buy something for myself. Last time I bought clothing or shoes for me was a couple of years ago. DH, on the other hand, buys himself something almost every week. He mostly buys books and tools. For my birthday he bought himself a wood chipper. Thanks, honey. It was a really nice birthday.
