I’m the Girl with the champagne taste on a beer budget and I’m not afraid to admit it.
I remember back in the day, I would do ridiculous things like go shopping on my one hour work lunch break, buy a fancy designer purse and then with 5 minutes left before having to go back to work I would stop by a fast-food joint and buy something from their value menu because I had spent all my money (and more) on one purse. But what a lovely purse it would be! You would have thought that I must have felt buyer’s remorse on numerous occasions but to be perfectly honest (which I always am to my readers!) I rarely felt regretful about my unaffordable purchases. True words spoken by a former shopaholic…
Nowadays I’m so obsessed with paying off debt that I never buy anything, but when I do, I make sure I have enough money for some of my fancy preferences. If I don’t have the money for it. I won’t buy it. Gone, are the days of buying on credit and financing my lifestyle.
Here is a list of my “champagne” tastes that I manage to fit into a tight “beer” budget!
- I don’t drink Starbucks regular coffee. I am that Girl with the fancy latte.
- I like Tiffany jewellery.
- My shampoo/haircut/blowdry/style costs more than $50.
- I am an “iGirl” with her fair share of iThings.
- I still like designer purses.
I pinky-promise I’m frugal about everything else!
What are some of your champagne tastes?
GMD Disclaimer: This post was only meant to be cheeky and fun and although it was 100% truthful I don’t recommend these champagne tastes while paying off debt.
