well I wouldn't feel so bad but damn, if my SO see the reciept he isn't gonna understand cause he isn't a woman!!!  They just don't see why you need to buy stuff like that, but I will tell you what I've been looking like hell the past week and maybe he will understand if at least I look better!  Thanks for helping me not feel so guilty!

I wouldn't feel bad either. Some times you just have to treat yourself.

Don't feel bad having that stuff makes you feel better and some of that stuff is a must. My husband never gets it and I finally asked him one day. Do you like me in a better mood smelling good and feeling good or do you like crabby looking tore up and just all around not happy. He picked the first has never said anything again.

I was under the impression you were going to say you needed toilet paper, medicine, tampons/pads, things like that, that YOU actually need. Sorry but spending nearly $100 you can't afford sounds pretty vein to me. I get that you don't want to look like an old woman, but some things you need to sacrifice for.

When you get to a certain age, the things I mentioned are things you need.  I go without alot believe me.  But at some point you just get tired of looking at yourself as unworthy.  I don't see anyone else in my family going without, I spend the money to get them what they need or want, I always feel guilty it seems when I get what I need or want.  Anyway, everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Quoting DragonMother10:
