WHAT, IF ANYTHING, DID I SPEND MONEY ON THIS WEEK?
This week, we went out with a small group of friends for dinner for an impromptu birthday celebration, which was lovely! My husband and I both went for a massage. (Deep tissue, yes please! I have told you all how much I need it!) As with most weeks, we also bought groceries and gasoline. I also used my Ulta birthday coupons to buy some much-needed hairspray. A friend who shares my birthday “donated” her birthday to charity, so I donated $5 to Puerto Rico relief in honor of her birthday.
We went to the joint birthday of our nephew and a good friend’s daughter, so we skipped the cards (kids don’t care anyways), and bought the kids gifts. As a childfree couple with no idea what the kids are into these days, we did our best to pick out stuff we thought they’d like.
WHAT ELSE WOULD I HAVE BOUGHT?
1. Brooks Brothers Cardigan. I went back and forth on this one, since I have been looking for a gray cardigan. I have a black one that goes with most things, but I was thinking I need a gray one to go with everything else. Especially now that the weather is (relatively) cooling down, this was a particularly tempting purchase.
2. Layfayette 148 Silk top. This plain top would look great with a suit.
3. Tahari ASL pink top. This would be perfect with a pencil skirt and cardigan.
Total amount I saved that I would have spent this week: $185
Running Total: $4,705
