I haven’t been shopping in ages. Seriously forever. I finally put myself on an effective budget at the start of the year and I’ve been sticking to it! What that means is I’d rather spend all my money on Starbucks which will last me all month, instead of one or two clothing items and blow all my allowance. You feel me?
I also have been trying to avoid buying clothes until I hit my goal weight, but that is just dragging. In the meantime I’m wearing baggy old clothes. Not cute. It’s getting to the point where David is noticing that I’m wearing not so flattering outfits – ha! Here was our conversation yesterday about my outfit.
David: “Babe that looks like a really old sweater”
Me: “I love this sweater! It’s from the Loft and I paid like $40 for it [4 ish years ago / it’s gray and white snakeskin pattern]
David: “You spent $40 on that?! It looks like it’s from 1988! HAHA”
Me: “Well I don’t have the money to blow on clothes, I’d rather buy Starbucks!”
Fast forward an hour or so, I’d been working on something and was getting stressed and he came in, told me he was heading to his softball game and that he was giving me $100 to go buy some new clothes. Whatever or wherever I wanted but the only catch was that I had to spend it all last night! We have separate accounts for non-bill stuff, like our own “fun money” so he was giving me his fun money. True love. I don’t give him my fun money. I give it to Starbucks.
As if that wasn’t good enough, he called back en route to the game and said you better transfer $103 so you can get a Starbucks too. Good man I tell ya.
I promptly postponed what I was working on and flew to Target. I spent almost two glorious hours there browsing the aisles, sipping a Shaken Passion Tea Lemonade and purchasing myself some things. I was in Heaven!
Also, the super sweet cashier told me about the Target app called Cartwheel. Deals galore on there and mobile coupons! Holla.
Here’s my loot. Several new staple shirts, two new work pants, and some wedges. All (but the bootleg black fancy pants) can be for work or play so it’s a win-win!
Women’s Favorite Tank (these are so freaking soft!)
Junior’s Boyfriend V Tee (again, softest material ever!)
Thanks again babe!! You rock my socks.
