Ha-ppy birthday to meeeeeee——eeeeeeee
Happy birthday to me.
Yes folks today is my real life birthday and I am not going to look at ways to save money since I am going to SPEND, SPEND, SPEND!!!
Well at least I am going to try to spend, since that is not something that really comes naturally to me. I have a few things in mind that I would like to spend the money on but I am not sure if I can get of the saving money mindset as yet.
I saved and put aside some money in my little splurge fund and in snowflakes and other things and I have a grand total of $345 that I can just BLOW today.
I might do some of the following:
-get a pedicure
-buy some clothes
-buy lunch at a nice restaurant
-buy a book
This birthday money was already accounted for in my budget so I am not going to even worry about it. Today is all about me and if I see something that I want then I am going to get it….or maybe not.
Sounds awesome! You deserve it! Happy Birthday! 🙂
Happy birthday! Hope you enjoy it!
Wow saved 345! That’s awesome, I hope you come back and tell us how your spending went! Happy Birthday to you! I hope it is the best!
Yes I will do a follow up on the birthday spending…although so far it is going okay. I got a pedicure at $25 and then immediately got the shakes at spending so much to have someone paint my toenails. Is that sad?
I’ve been there before after treating myself, having that regret of spending the money. For example whenever I go to a restaurant, and get that item that I usually don’t get and later regret the money I spent, because I feel like I just wasted my money. I think it’s a natural feeling for us all, and time should fix that feeling, at least for the most part it does for me.
Happy Birthday and all the best! Buy yourself a little something special or take a bubble bath 🙂
Happy birthday Lulu! It’s a good sign that you felt bad about splurging. When you are trying to save, you need to stay in that mindset. If you are going to go and waste a bunch of money it ends up offsetting all the other penny pinching you did. It is good to treat yourself once in a while though.
d’oh looks like i missed your post but happy belated birthday. I don’t think you should feel bad splurging on yourself. It’s once a year and it’s good to reward yourself! Here’s to a good year ahead!
Happy belated Birthday. I just had mine on the 24th. July rocks!
