Couple's Corner #9: Shopping Galore

Shopping Galore????Hmmmppp this is the topic of this week meme.
Rodliz’s Nest

Actually, I cannot call myself shopaholic or love to shop. I am boring when it comes to shopping because I don't really love shopping. Of course I feel good, happy and satisfied if I bought something for myself or for my husband or family.

I am the persons that I must think “hundreds” times before buying that particular item. For instance, I really want to buy a piece of dress for just a collection. At first I will think, do I need to buy and have that cloth in my closet? Or should I wear that someday or sometimes? Hmmpppp sound weird but I am like that.

If i will buy something, i choose to buy with brand atleast i know that i can use it long time and no need to buy new next year...

Last birthday of mine, my husband gave me cash instead of giving me material things because as his reason, I better buy things myself because for sure I like it or want it. But unfortunately, the amount that he gave me, still in my wallet. I just spent little but maybe I’ll spend it someday...hahaha.

I am planning to just save my money because maybe the time that I will need money, at least I don't need to ask from my husband. And also, I don't need anything...

Since it's Christmas, maybe I will just buy some little gift for myself and for my hubby. After that, I will wait until end of winter season at least there will be plenty sale. I'm just spending my money wisely because I’m not working yet...

My husband didn't really like shopping as well. He will just buy things if he really need it or if he must. And same as me, he always buy branded things because he can use it for few years... We just did shopping together when we was in Hongkong and Berlin but it was not plenty because we didn't have the taste of buying those stuff...

But of course I’m not against to those who love shopping. If that makes them happy, then of course go for it. Just spend money wisely and think of who's working or where that money comes from. Be fair and don't take advantage...

Wise Jenny..
As you know, I'm a SAHM too. So I always try to keep all the money my husband gave me. But sometimes I just can resist it. Especially when I saw a cute bag or shoes. Oh My God. Lol.

Hehehe! same as mommymayonnaise, no matter how I try to keep the money that husband earned, it's hard to resist SALE items.

There are some people that don't like to shop, but when they do, they would buy the branded stuff for longer usage. People have their own preference when it comes to their personal things. Maybe if I didnt have lots of kids, I would still be buying all the branded I can think of, but once mortgage, bills, and plenty of mouths to feed come, Ukay Ukay would be the best place, hahaha!

I understand why you want to save the money that your husband gives you since you don't work, and that is very considerate of you. Well, this Christmas, go out and buy something, jsut for the fun of it.

I love shopping jen, but I don't have money waaaa. Makakawala ng stress yata for me ang shopping. Wise spender ka pala, kung ako binigyan ng pera ng hubby for shopping, matagal na yan nawala sa wallet ko hehehehehe. Buti ka pa, may perang pangshopping but not a shopaholic, ako I like shopping but no datung for it lol.
