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.

 Yea, I would rather buy my babies extra clothes or toys than buy myself a want item. Now soaps and shampoos and toilet paper and things that I need get bought. But lotion, makeup, hair dye, cute clothes? Ehh it can be held off.

Quoting ZakkarysMom:

I do that too. I put off buying make up alot of the time.


Quoting sassysuie:

 Yes, I was at walmart earlier and picked up some lotion for my ecsema but ended up laying it down by the checkouts because I felt like I could use the money I was about to spend on something more important for my babies later on....

Lol same here. I'll buy something that I need/want, then something in the car or the house will break. That's why now I only buy a vs bra every 6 months or I wait until they have their sales. Lol but that's why I keep receipts.


Quoting baquick:

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!

O I know how you feel. I have seborrheic dermatitis, and that stuff can get expensive. But it is a need, more than a want.
