February is the shortest month of the year. Hence it's the easiest month of the year to save money & stay on budget, right? For us, there aren't any February birthdays or anniversaries. Dustin & I celebrate Valentines Day but we choose to just enjoy a gluttonous dinner & late movie--gone are the days of V Day jewelry and overpriced cologne.
Plus Christmas was just 6 weeks ago. What else could I possibly need?
Shoes. Shoes is what I need.
But not for me. I love a great wedge or pair of riding boots, but my vice is buying shoes for my girls. Flip flops in every color, mary janes, chucks, sneakers, flats, slip ons, sandals, snow boots, riding boots, furry boots, fringe boots, rain boots, i don't need a job i don't need a boyfriend i've got great boots boots. I love them all. And I cannot resist them what.so.ever.
I couldn't not.
Zoom in. Are you seeing these prices?!?! $45 boots for $8.99. Boots I was thisclose to buying on Zulily a few weeks ago because I thought $24.99 was a good deal. SO glad I held off because I walked out of Kohls spending only $52 on all these PLUS received $10 in Kohls cash. Can I get a slow clap? Hell, can I get a Judd Nelson victory air punch?
So tell me mommas, what's your buying vice for your kids? Do you break budget just to fit it in? If not, lietomelietomelietome.
