What I want is to buy, buy, buy! What I need is for pay day to show up already.
Am I the only one who gets paid and gets super happy and crazy that I end up only being somewhat rich for less than 24 hours before I’m broke again?
This never fails to happen to me. Pay day arrives and I almost trip and fall as I run to the mall. I’m not going to lie, I spend a lot of money on things I want way over things that I need. Wants are not just materialistic things, but also food. How can I say no to food? Do I really need some of those Great American Cookies? No, but I want it.
I’m not going to tell you that you should learn how to buy things that you need over things you just simply want. Instead, I’m here to remind you that you are not the only one who may go overboard with spending money the second you get paid. I am going to show you some things that I need versus things that I want. You’ll notice right away that the wants are greater.
I’ve been needing another blazer. I have one black one right now, but after trying to put on outfits for work in the morning, I realized that I could really use a white one. This one is from Boohoo. I need to just purchase it already. I could really use it to amp up my more professional looking outfits for work.
I really need a pair of black jeans…
The ones off to the right are from Fashionnova. I like these in particular because I have these in the Medium Blue color and I think that they are comfortable and very flattering. They are also high-waisted which is the only type of jean I like wearing now-a-days.
I am always looking to save money, but when it comes to pants, I am willing to spend the money if I like the way that it fits and it feels comfortable. I still do not really know what my proper pant size is. I can tell you right now that I have pant sizes in my closet ranging from size 2 to size 9. Crazy, but it has made me pay closer attention to size charts.
Moving on, I also really need another strapless bra. I have been wearing the only one I have religiously with all the off-the-shoulder, spaghetti strap or strapless tops and dresses that are all they hype this summer. I want to get another strapless bra in a nude color so that I can wear it with anything. I have not found a nude bra that I like, so I have no image for this item. However, I do have an image for some nude shoes that I like.
These are from Nordstrom and are 33% off at the moment. I always prefer 50% off or more which is why I haven’t purchased these yet. I know I am taking a gamble to wait for the price to lower for these, but I also want these shoes in pink. Do I need pink shoes? No. But that pink is SO gorgeous!
I know that I can pair more things with the nude color. I know, I know, I know!! Did you notice how everything I need is a nude color?
But I really cannot pass up the pink. I am a sucker for colorful stuff. These shoes are so awesome and I know I will cry if I don’t get them in pink. Could I live without the nude colored ones? Yeah. But the truth is that I need more neutrals! Sometimes black doesn’t really go with the outfit. Moving on to even more wants…
I’m obsessing over this almost $100 mustard yellow jacket from Verge Girl. Just look at it. I love that this jacket demands attention and stands out from the crowd without being too bright. I will have this jacket.
What I will not have is this romper on here from ModCloth…I took the gamble to wait for the price to go down and I looked for it only to discover that they only have XL available. Sigh…
I just want to ask God one thing…Bless this mess!
The real Holy Water is the way that this site describes their product Bless This Mess spray. On Anese, this spray is a hydrating mist that apparently smells very heavenly. I want it! I am so curious about this product even though I have a ton of sprays that I love. I really recommend you guys go check out this website. Their beauty products seem really cool and they all have funny names! I love it! Their website is listed below. Are there things that you guys want really badly? Are there things that you need but are still finding yourself holding off just so that you can buy what you want first?
You’re not alone my friend. Cheers.
