Yikes!! Over budget....

So, I went shopping today and I thiiiiiiiiiiiink I went over budget. I was trying to stay under $250 for my siblings and my niece and ended up spending 265 dollars. But the worst part was that most of it was for me :{ I bought a blazer, too button ups, 2 pair of jeans [one for my little brother], 4 thermals [2 for my little brother], 3 t-shirts, a pack of socks, a pair of suede-like dress pants, 2 boxers, an argyle vest, and a fur lined hoodie. Tomorrow I'm buying some $70 shoes that I like. What the hell happened to me? My mom told me that I should stop buying clothes. It's funny cause my closest is full and I only have a third of my clothes at my apartment! My little brother [spoiled] and little sister [who is in actuality 22 months older than me, also spoiled] gifts are done. Now, it's my two nieces and older brother and oldest sister's turns. Then my best friend and I'm done!

I see you have been to the Gordon Brown School of Economics - as you are spending your country out of recession, you should be awarded the Congressional Gold Medal!

(I did something very similar today, except delete clothes and insert music!)

Dude! You're putting me to shame with the shopping, here. You gotta post some pics of the clothes you got.

I'm a chronic shopper too. So I know what buyer's guilt feels like.

Besides, you could always say you're doing it for the economy.

I, er, don't shop. I can be quite indecisive so I don't like to "waste" a day shopping for something that I may not get.

I also hate shopping with other people. Especially women. They take FOREVER.

Where are you shopping? For all that, I'm amazed you spent so little.

I was surprised that I got it all for that much too. I got a great discount!

Ha ha. How funny!

I do the same thing. One present for sister, one for me. A present for brother, one for me. Something for mom and something three times as expensive for me.

Sigh...

I guess I just love myself to much and try to make me happy. Ha ha

I did the same thing this past weekend. I took my kid shopping this weekend and we bought a bunch of stuff and I'm thinking, "I really need to stop this and focus on getting stuff for my family." I ultimately decided to just wait until Christmas Eve to get everything. Leave it the gay boy to wait until the last minute.
