To decorate or buy clothes?

Do you ever have trouble deciding on whether you want to spend money on your house or on your clothes? I could do all kinds of updates to my house, but I love having some new clothes, shoes, purses, and stuff each season too. I just don't budget, never have, so I tend to wing it with what I buy. How do you decide when it's time to pass on the sweater and buy a picture for the wall?

I pretty much buy what jumps out at me at the moment

 No comparing. My clothing is 2nd hand. Redecorating the house is usually just a fresh coat of paint, curtains, anda few accessories.

 I would do a little of both. Maybe buy some pants and a sweater. Then, you could also buy maybe a picture for the wall, and some curtains. Maybe go cheap on both, that way you can afford both. Have fun! credit card

 Everything is budgeted.  If I want the sweater I buy it, if the house needs something, I get it. I don't sacrifice one for the other.

Nope. I don't have this problem as I hate shopping. Especially for myself.
