Love & Marriage Love & Marriage

If your husband gave you $100....

What would you go buy?


My husband teaches one night a week, and he gets paid monthly at the end of the month.  Since it is just extra money,  he (we) decided that, as long as all of our bills are caught up, each of us will get $100 spending money and the rest go to our savings account. 

So I have $100 today to go shopping with but have no clue what I want! I have plenty of clothes, makeup, and running atire/accessories (which is what I normally spend my money on). Plus it's REALLY hard for me to spend money on myself.  I always end up spending money "just for me" on the kids.  But they have everything they need too :-P

What would YOU buy?

I really want snake bites, haha.  But I work in a hospital (nurse) and they would whip me.  

Why don't you go get your nose done?? You should!

Quoting WifeyMommy2011:

I'd buy jeans, get my nose pierced(been wanting that for years Lol), a necklace, and a cute outfit for my son.

But that's me. Lol

Sephora is my happy place. I could, and have, spent hours there playing with everything. 

Quoting OMGLasersPOWPOW:

Is it bad that I just had to google what Sephora was? It looks like there's one in my mall and it's a kind of store I would LOVE!

Quoting ReadWriteLuv:

Because I'm a dramatic person, DUH!

Seriously, I'd go to Sephora. That's about it. 

Quoting OMGLasersPOWPOW:

I am kind of confused as to how you can take what I have written and turn it into some kind of drama. I was in a playing mood but you are being serious.  Basically what am I asking is if you have an extra $100 what would you buy.  Who cares where it came from?  My husband's money is my money, and my money is my husband's money.  I do make extra money sometimes from my checks but I usually put extra money into savings or put it into the kids account, and same with what DH does with his check. 

Quoting ReadWriteLuv:

Well, then forgive me for being literal, but you don't really make your own spending money, do you?

Quoting OMGLasersPOWPOW:

I said "IF" ;)

I make my own money too but I only work one day a week, and that money goes towards my student loans. :-P

Quoting ReadWriteLuv:

My husband doesn't ever give me money, I make my own.

That said, with a hundred extra dollars I'd make a Sephora run. There is always something new to try.

Quoting KatLee42513:

I don't wear makeup. Im not a typical girl. I'd probably hit up goodwill & the local organic food store :)

Lol nice, my best friend has snake bites! We haven't really had extra money. :-( but hubby said I can get it for my birthday which is December 14th, sooooo hopefully I'll get it soon! Lol

I really only made it about "if your husband gave you..." since this is the love & marriage group and I didn't want to make it OT! haha.

Yeah I SHOULD do that....lol

Quoting Fayanne:

 o geez...

First of all, I have to say, I LOVE your screen name! lol.

Secondly.. not married. One hundred extra a month, ... if bills were truly caught up, I'd probably buy clothes. My wardrobe is sorely lacking .... or I'd spend it on things the house needs.. new floors, appliances, paint, etc, which isn't your situation.

If bills were caught up and I didn't need anything, I'd probably stash it away and save it for a BIG thing, like maybe a NICE vacation, if you're all set for retirement, college savings, etc

 then I had to google Sephora, ... that confused me, too! lol. I was thinking  jewelry, but I must've confused Sephora with Sophia from Lia Sophia.

I'd either buy some crafting stuff or save it for a girl's night out.
