I started working in 2007 and have always tried my best to be financial responsible. After paying all the bills, students loans, and putting money aside for retirement; I usually still have enough to put into my savings account as well as buying some fun things for myself.
I have never been one to splurge on expensive designer clothing or Louboutin shoes. My only shopping vice is that I like to treat myself to a couple designer handbags a year. I don’t think that’s too bad considering all my shoes are under $60 and I buy most of my clothes at the outlet.
Now that I’m a start-up business owner, every penny that I make from my office goes right back into the business. For the first time in my life, I have to ask someone else (in this case my husband) for money, which is TOTALLY depressing because I have worked very hard in school for many years so I can avoid this situation. Of course we had talked about this arrangement prior to opening my practice, but he still makes silly comments every time I ask him to transfer money into my account. I now try to itemize my credit card spending every month so I can feel more legitimate when I take his money.
Sadly, this whole zero income period means that I have to give up all the little luxuries that I’m accustomed to. Instead of getting a pedicure every 3 weeks I got it today for the first time in 4 months. The last haircut I had with Eric from Global House of Hair was last December. And designer handbags?? I highly doubt my husband will have any sympathy for me with regards to those 🙁
Anyway, this is what I’m coveting right now

We had a mom that came in two weeks ago with this bag. I was soooooo jealous. I just have to keep working hard so that maybe in a couple more years I can start bringing money home again. Until then, I have to just suck it up and stick to what’s already in my closet.
