Oh hey, End Of April. I guess it's time for me to disclose my financial information once again. I'm really not supposed to buying anything these days (I'm headed to Europe this summer and I would much rather save my money to spend there)... but it happened. Kind of. Allow me to explain:
I have this thing with gift cards. When I get them, I hold onto them like they're gold (or titanium, or platinum, or whatever your equivalent of bling is). I think it's because I don't like spending money on things I don't really need (like new clothes), but if someone gives me a gift card, it's like they are forcing me to buy something for myself and I've got to make sure it's the right thing. I've alluded to it before, and it turns out this isn't normal (no one has ever sympathized) so any aspiring psychologists out there are welcome to diagnose. Anyway, I purchased the first item below with a gift card I got for Christmas. Yeah, Christmas.
Target Floral Pants Guys, floral pants are so awesome. I am so happy they are so "in" right now. I have been looking for "the perfect pair" for a while - my poor Bestie received quite a few pictures of me in fitting rooms in various pairs of pants. I wanted something bright, not-jeans, with a slim fit. Hard to find, but these lovely pants fit the bill! $27.99 - purchased with a gift card.
2. Lace Tee I was wandering around at TJ Maxx (how I ended up there, I have no idea, I swear) and I stumbled across this pretty lace tee (it's Cynthia Rowley, but I couldn't find the exact item online). At $16.99, it seemed like a good purchase, especially since I love lace and during the summer I wear light tees pretty much every day.
Total Cash: $16.99
So there you have it. Anyone else buy anything fun this month? Or use an old gift card (pleeeease, tell me I'm not alone)?
