The Damage

Short vacations are difficult... especially around the holidays and when visiting family. I was kinda bad this past weekend. My mom is a bad influence...she dragged me to the mall on Saturday before the wedding. I spent $117.88 at Express but I used 2 coupons for $40 off and $10 off. On the drive up, I bought a pair of comfy flats at Target for $14.99. For gas, I spent about $65 for the entire weekend, but luckily my mom paid for a tank of gas when I got home. Also I spent $123.39 on a few skincare products from a line called Swedish Skin. Considering that each product was about $20, I don't think that was too bad. I've been needing new skin care products and I have never splurged on anything like this before. I feel a bit guilty for spending so much but I know I will be able to pay off that $117.88 on my credit card this next week. For everything else, I used cash and it feels nice to be able to just pay for things and not worry about them later (a la credit card). Plus I will be sending money to my savings account right away. Considering that I just spent $241.27 on myself this past weekend, I need to remember that number and not let it get out of hand again. That's what happened last time - I would never calculate the actual damage done and would think I could spend because I had the money.

Well I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving! Mine went by SO quickly.. my BFF's wedding was amazing and so much fun.. great food, people and dancing! I loved seeing my family this weekend but I am glad the long drive is over. I got back super late last night and got to work bright and early today. Happy Monday!

Sounds like it was a fun weekend! :) I hope you end up liking your facial products, i'm always leery trying "new" ones in case they don't "work" with my skin. lol!

Sounds like I had the same weekend! But there were some Black Friday deals on a few things I needed so I didn't feel too bad. I managed to get my Christmas Shopping list out of the way early and that feels good =)
