Mom to Mom Mom to Mom

Do you feel guilty when..

Posted by   + Show Post
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.

No, I don't feel guilty :) It's not like I am making them do without just to buy myself some clothes, they have plenty of clothes already.

LOL...yeah, that's it.  I don't want to go buy any more since I'm 21 wks pregnant.

Quoting ZakkarysMom:

1 pair of jeans?


Quoting mom2gr8tgirls:

Yeah, I feel like that too.  Unless it's something I needed.  Like the last pair of jeans I bought.  I needed them (my only pair had ripped in the inner thigh something fierce) since I only had one pair of jeans.

 Everyone deserves something new for themselves every once in a while. I usually don't buy for myself either, but there are occasions when I see something that has caught my eye for quite some time and it's finally on the clearance rack or I have been waiting forever, so I pick it up. A little pick me up for yourself is a nice treat that every one deserves!

Yes, my mom was the same way! She barely ever bought her self something when we were growing up. I like you feel they come 1st.

I TOTALLY do. After I have sat there, scrutinized over the price/value and if I could possibly get it somewhere cheapier (All after I've done my research and brought coupons or went for a sale) I STILL sit there and ask myself, "Do I REALLY need this?" lol, I'd rather spend it on my husband or boys. It is VERY difficult for me to buy ME anything without feeling guility or questioning myself. I wear my clothing until it has holes. I wear my shoes until they fall apart. I don't use purses, so no need to bother with those. I NEED new underware, but I haven't gotten around to getting me any. I got my 2 year old some, and my husband some boxers, but did not get any undies for me. I NEED new pants, because I went back down to a size 8, which I have not been in YEARS, and all of my clothing is a size 10. (Even an 8 would be too big, but lets face it, no way in HELL could I EVER fit back into a size 6. Not with these hips at least. A size 7 would be great, but the retailers that sale size 7 are ridiculous in price. So............. I will wear a belt! Because it's cheaper and I already have two. lol)
