do you spend money on yourself or more likely to buy kids things than yourself?

i may buy a 2 dollar nailpolish but i rarely buy things for me. i splurged and bought a 8 dollar book this week and i felt guilty. anyone else?

  • I will spend money for my haircuts, highlights , makeup and skincare products. I buy clothing and shoes for my kids before myself. I don't get manicures or pedicures and don't really have any hobbies. I do get books from the library rather than buying them. If there was a book I really wanted I would buy it. Don't feel guilty.... you are important too!!

  • I dont think you should feel guilty if you buy yourself something once in a while. I think everyone needs something every once in a while. But if course kid come first.

  • I always buy for him before myself. I did recently buy some myself a few new shirts and I really need a haircut so I will do that but other than that I do not regularly spend on myself.
