Do I have a good reason to be mad?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post


Ok so I got my school money today (loan left overs) and I bought me and DH a much needed new mattress and am going to use it to pay next mths rent so we can "get ahead" We recently loss 1000 a mth because I am now a SAHM. DH makes more than enough to pay bills but like i said I just wanted to get ahead. And basically start a savings. So after paying some bills the mattress and money for rent I have 600 left. So DH calls me and says he is going to get us a new sofa. it was like 1600 we would have to put down 700 and the rest would be in-house financed. UGH I WAS PISSED. We do need new sofas but we will be fine for now. 

Now let me tell you why I'm mad. I am mad because I wanted a e reader lol either a tablet or a kindle fire. I wanted one for Christmas and DH didn't get me them instead got me UGG boots. Well I could use this to Download my books to from school and plus I love to read. 

Well we wouldn't have "extra" money to get it if he got the sofa

Would you be upset or am I being spoiled?

I also think AF is about to show up for the first time after my miscarriage last mth. So I know I am more irritated then I should be but what do you think??

 I wouldnt have accepted more money than I needed for school because I wouldnt want more debt.  THat is just me.  I would not buy a sofa OR an e reader and pay interest.  Especially for the sofa.  Interest on the loan and interest on the store financing.  UGH.

 My uncle passed away last year and he had just ordered a $10,000 custom made sectional sofa.  Super nice but nobody knew what to do with it....  It looks great next to my $200 ashley chair.  LMAO!  Its nice and comfey but who pays that much for a couch right??
