Guilty pleasures - what do you spend money on?

Like Tree18Likes

Everyone has their things. I'm not thinking like tv shows and such but more what you spend your money on.

For me? It's fancy "girly" things

I am slowly building my fragrance wardrobe and have spend quite a bit at this amazing perfumerie in my city. People think I'm crazy but I love having expensive rare perfumes to cycle through. the bottles look pretty and I am always being told how good I smell. Loves it.

I have a friend whose bike costs more than their car. To me that is craziness! Haha

What's your thing?

Fancy perfume, fancy sunglasses, shoes, and hello kitty and friends paraphernalia l(sp?) I buy everything on sale (minus the expensive perfume, never found any on sale) I love a good pair of expensive sunglasses that are cheap. I got some Vera Wang 275 dollar glasses for 40 bucks once.

Oh I forgot makeup also. But I haven't really bought any*off to sephora*
Girly stuff...clothes, shoes, makeup, skincare products, perfume, henna and other hair doo-dads.

I don't do nail stuff or fancy handbags though. Those seem like a collossal waste of money to me. LOL
Lately, gadgets.

Recently, blush.

Formerly, lipstick.

Perpetually: rescue dogs.

Dogs and nature abhor a vacuum.
It hit me yesterday that I haven't cooked with anything but European style cultured butter for as long as I can remember. The place near me that sells butter I like at a reasonable was out of both possible choices. I had about a one-second flash of "maybe I should get regular butter" but I decided I'd just wait to get the good stuff since I had enough for what I was making.
Skin care products (Sephora)
Shoes--not too expensive ones. Just more than I need!
Going out to eat/drink

These are all things I KNOW I don't really need and could save money on, but I do it anyway, and too often!

Jewelry, makeup, handbags, curls. I know I'm singing to the choir.

I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....

I seriously covet things, but I don't actually spend much on myself. I think I'm utilitarian to a fault and pretty stingy - I love things like purses and jewelry, but I never buy them for myself or even really shop for them because I don't "need" them. I'll buy myself clothes every few months, but it's usually when I legitimately need something (can't wear jeans with holes in the butt to work, for example ) or if get to the point where I feel like I dislike too large a percentage of my wardrobe.

I do spend a good bit on nice food and wine.

Lately, I've been coveting new running shoes and running clothes. I just retired a pair of shoes, and I have another pair with over 400 miles on them which will probably be dead in about a month, so I kind of have an excuse to buy some right now and I'm chomping at the bit. AND some of my clothes starting to look pretty disgusting (yeah, I'm quite the fashion plate at the gym ) so I have an excuse to buy some clothes too. Now if only I had an excuse to buy them at Lululemon....damn their cuteness and their exorbitant prices.

The running stuff addiction helps to combat most of the negative aspects of food and wine

Jeans, flip flops, work out clothes, running shoes, purses, jewelry, makeup, nail polish, lotions and potions. Things for the kitchen - knives, gadgets, herbs, spices, salts. I used to buy lots of Harley gear but I've sold most of that and haven't bought anything new in a long time.
I buy things for my vehicles when I first get them. When I got the truck last year I got running boards, grille guard, seat covers, etc. I redecorated almost every room in the house last year so I bought loads of furniture and art work and such. This year I haven't had to buy any big items.

The pews never miss a sermon but that doesn't get them one step closer to Heaven.

But at least the pews never attend yoga!
Clothes (only wardrobe staples)
skin care
books (only if I can't find it at my local library)
I buy expensive hair products and makeup, but not excessively.
I think that I deceive genius.

Parking spots for lazy primadonnas who don't want to get their shoes wet.

Sweaters...particularly those with buttons.

Food...I need good quality food.

Makeup, but I haven't found anything I'm completely thrilled about.
Books - seriously I think I buy between 5 - 10 a month
Knee high boots (expensive ones)
Hair products
- Nailpolish, ever since Essie became widely available in Holland I'm hooked!

- Clothes for my little girl. She has way too many clothes but I can't stop buying. Everytime I see something cute I just have to buy it
