Here we are another week. We are not spending any money on anything extra. Sometimes that is hard to justify.
We were all bundled up in the Ford Escape. I hopped in the driver’s seat while the girls were all strapped into their car seats. ‘Mommy, my 5 -year old says, “Can you grab my other Crocs these ones are too itchy.”
I sigh. Sure. This is my third time in the house. Forgot coupon binder. Forgot Teddy. Now Forgot Crocs.
I get back into the car and immediately my face turns to disgust. “Who farted?” I ask.
“Not Me.” Something wreaks in here.
I get to the end of our driveway and again I tell the girls. ‘This car smells horrible.”
Riley says “Mommy, it’s my feet.” I reach back touch her toes and smell my hand. Yes I am that gross. It is her feet.
I tell her we are buying her socks today. Those things need to sweat into something.
That I can justify. The kid has one pair of socks and it has worked because she HATES wearing them. But that smell. It can’t go on.
When you are on a spending freeze you are thinking about every purchase. You are questioning everything you buy and all that crosses your mind to buy.
This week I struggled with Date Night. I wanted to spend based on my feelings.
