Spending and budgets… Still working on it

When it comes to spending and budgets I know that I should be more careful with unnecessary purchases but every now and then I have those moments of weakness. Today I had a day full of weakness. The Bay was having a family and friends sale event which meant an additional 25% off your entire purchase – including sale and clearance items! I found a couple pairs of shoes (black pumps and black flats) that I will wear often and fit perfectly in wardrobe. And I also purchased some concealer and pressed powder.


Coach flats – regular $168 sale – approx $80 including taxes


Vince Camuto black pumps – regular $150 sale approx $70 including taxes


MAC mineralize concealer and powder. cosmetics were an additional 10% off.

So it was a but of a shopping spree for me today. Of course prior to shopping for myself I made sure the kids had a gift for daddy.
The sale ends tomorrow and I’m very tempted to go back to the store to see if there are any good deals on clothing. Of course the practical side of me is telling myself to stay away and stop spending.

I really should try a little harder to spend less. I’m definitely still working on it.
