Who is the one always harping about paying cash and staying within your budget?
Who is the one who does almost everything Dave Ramsey says?
Me. (Except the private school thing.)
Who is scared to go home and tell her husband that she impulse shopped?
I budgeted for new workout clothes, because I really do need them. So I bought them last week. I also bought a long tweed skirt, a pair of boots and a handbag.
They weren't budgeted.
I need to take them back.
I haven't yet.
I can't believe what I did today.
I am so embarrassed.
My friend, who works at Talbot's, texted me. She said she had a 20% off deal for me. So I went. Just to look. Not to buy.
I love Talbot's clothes. Classic, preppy and very high quality. And when on sale, they can be a good deal.
I tried on a black silk turtleneck. Because I don't have one, and really? A black turtleneck is a staple that you can wear for years.
The turtleneck looked sooooooooooo good on me.
So did the black twinset.
And so when she offered to special order the red cable knit turtleneck for me, how could I refuse? I need a red cable knit turtleneck. I do!
Plus, she gave me a 10% discount PLUS the 20% discount. That's like . . .30% off!
With 30% off, the bill was only $180.00. For four things (well, five - the twinset is two things).
I don't know which I dread more: telling Greg what I did, or having to face Kelly when I return everything.
Dave Ramsey have mercy on me!
