I do not want to be responsible

March 9th, 2009 at 06:57 pm

Well our return will be a bit bigger than I expected, and we do have responsible things to do with it, beefing up an EF and such. (no debt aside from the house)

But I don't want to be responsible. I want to waste some money. Well not waste, I want to spend some on things for the house and kids.

I want some canvas type 'boxes' to be slid into shelves, one for library books, one for library Cds and movies. oh and one for baby toys, so I can have them easy to reach, but not so messy looking in the living room.

Then I want to get my kids to the library and other places more often, since I don't drive, I am going to have to get others to do it for me, and for that I need to be able to help with gas at least some of the time.

I also want something new in my kitchen windows, not sure what though. I kindof like this

roman shade But not sure I am willing to splurge that much on each window.

Though I did see some that had neat prints silk screened on the shades, that I might pay more for, but not the prints I saw. A cute simple scene. Saw a nice one that was mostly black and gray, with a few flowers in yellow, neat simple, enough color to not be drab, drew attention to the flowers, but not gaudy. Since my kitchen is mostly gray and black it would be pretty cool.

But looking at prices, I find it easier said than done. Ah well we shall see.

    I completely understand. Hubby and I were really thrifty last year, saving every penny. This year, we really wanted some fun. Saving all the time and being responsible all the time is exhausting. You have to treat yourself every once in a while.

    Perhaps a treat, like the shades would be an investment in your self or your house. Then you can happily save the rest. Maybe you should ask for the boxes for your anniversary.

    My policy is at least 10% of found money has to be dedicated to fun. Those bins are beautiful!

    Very pretty! I wouldn't worry about spending some of it, especially if it's over something useful like that!

    PrincessPerky, do you have a sewing machine? The cheapest machine could help you make those bags and shades. I think they take almost no skill. $1/yard fabric can make a lot of simple stuff. A sewing machine is a luxury, but can pay for itself.

    Joan, I used to own a sewing machine, I spent more time swearing at it than sewing, so I ditched it (gave it back) which considering how annoyed I was at it, was better than what I wanted to do (take a sledge hammer to it)

    but I do hand sew, also have friends with sewing machines, wonder how hard the 'basket' would be.
