Money Do you spend on average to stay looking good, as far as Make up, Clothes, Shoes, Nails, Hair, Tan, Ect? Whatever it is that you do that makes you look good or feel good about you...

Like...MAYBE $200 a year on clothes. Makeup makes my skins dry out, I hate shoes, don't get my nails or hair done and I am terrified of tanning beds.

So far this year, $20. A few new shirts, some flip flops and new make up because my kid got into my old stuff.

$55 gym membership

$20.clothing budget (undies/stockings usually, but I pick up a new pair of Jeans a couple times a year)

$2 new nail polish



I do my own nails and hair and don't spend much on makeup. I don't want to age prematurely so I don't tan. I've learned that the best self esteem boost I can get is an hour or two at the gym.

I live in flip flops and uggs, probably 20 bucks a summer on flip flops. Maybe 250 on clothes a year. Maybe 40 on hair cuts, I don't get them often enough. I don't do nails or makeup. Wouldn't work with my lifestyle. Tan is free courtesy of our beach lifestyle.

Make up lasts forever and a half. I buy razors regularly. Can't seem to find any actual good ones. So those get pretty spendy. For some reason that's the biggest thing that comes to mind, lol. I don't get my hair done regularly or anything.

We are still honestly working out a good budget. We aren't broke, or even close, but I would like to get a budget set up of how much we spend on stuff like this on average but it is sporadic as of now. I'd call it a work in progress, and this is just a giant 'I don't know'.

Don't wear makeup, don't really buy new clothes, hate shoes, do my own nails, don't tan and wear a pony tail most the time. My kids make me feel good about myself, and I naturally look good. :) But, if I had to put a number on it, I'd say $200 a year.
