It's 9:00 a.m. and the house is quiet, except for E singing along with Pinky Dinky Doo. I am just putting the finishing touches on my makeup and hair and pulling on my size 8 jeans (yes, that's part of the dream), when the doorbell rings. I peek out the window, as I always do before I unlock the door. Low and behold, it's Publisher's Clearinghouse at my door with a big ole check made out to me. I open the door and find out the check is for $1,000, but there are stipulations. First of all, I am not allowed to pay bills with this money. I am not allowed to spend the money on the kids. I am to spend this money only on myself. Wow, this is a dilemma. I NEVER spend money on myself, or at least not often. Let me give you an example of what I mean. My kids always need new clothes because they outgrow them so quickly. Wanna know what I bought myself this summer? Two tank tops from Old Navy, and two $9.99 shirts from New York & Company, and two summer dresses with a grand total of about $65 for all of it and that's more than I ususally buy.
So, how would I spend my $1,000? Let's see......
So, this Cricut Expression and a few extras would be roughly $300.
Next I would go to a salon and get my hair colored and cut.
Love Ashlee Simpson's color.
and Emma Stone's color. Cut and color would be around $125.
Now, I desperately need some cute clothes. I'm a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl. I love flannel and jeans and boots. I have a bit of a boot obsession. I love all of this:
Love this shirt for $33 from Maurice's.
CUTE! $75 from J.C.Penney's
$55 also from J.C. Penney's
Sad that I don't have a denim jacket, isn't it? Gap $35
Cute VS jammies for $49.50.
That is a grand total of $672.50 plus tax leaves about $260.00, just enough for a night out with the Hubby and a little bit to save for when I need a few things for summer.
So, what would you buy with your $1000?? Remember, you're not allowed to pay bills or spend it on anybody but yourself!!
