So like the other poster talked about being unfrugal...

we went to a carnival this weekend...and my son...oh my son...lol...wanted ice cream and the only vendor that had ice cream was selling this TINY...TINY TUB for $4!!

Plain vanilla and nothing on it!!

lemme tell ya....my stomach was in knots...as I handed over that $4 knowing how many things I could buy for $4.

But we don't get out too much so...I took that into consideration and seeing my son happy...and got it. LOL

Ugh.

icecream

I know the feeling.. I get that for small things like soda or candy bars my husband likes to buy out of vending machines. Now even just going out to eat because I've put my self on such a tight budget and plan everything.
