You buy something for yourself? I bought a shirt today. Just a plain long sleeve shirt. And i felt guilty. I rarely buy things for myself. My kids have more clothes than i do. And thats fine. I always put their needs before my own.

 yes i do.  especially lately since we have had so little spare cash.  I HAVE to buy some jeans tomorrow, but i am already cringing because i know its going to run me close to $40, and there are so many other things that we need as well.

Just a couple more weeks and we should be fine though.....

 No I don't feel guilty at all, I will give my kids everything they need but I would not feel guilty to spend money on myself that I earned.

I feel guilty even going to work leaving my children with my husband, let alone a day care provider. I feel guilty doing anything without having my child with me, because their my responsibility, so where I go, they go. Even doing something as a walk by myself makes me feel guilty.


it's something that I need to learn to get over.

Sometimes lol. After 6 years I bought VS bras. I needed desperately.

That week I had to buy a new tire bc I had a flat with a nail. If I hadn't gotten the bras I wouldn't have had to borrow from my grandma for the tire!

I do sometimes. But I usually buy them a treat anyway then I don't feel quite as bad.
