Part of the reason I love blogging – and vlogging – is that it forces me to do things I otherwise wouldn’t and to examine the way I think about things. I have a problem spending money on myself. Truly. My clothes tend to hang around forever in my closet – last week, did you see my vlog on the oldest item in my closet and blog on the special items I found in my closet while preparing that vlog? – and I don’t buy new ones often. When I do, they are always on sale and frequently on clearance. I own fewer shoes than almost anyone I know. I could go on and on.
That said, I can go out to dinner with friends and not worry about it. I finally figured out why. As long as I’m not doing it too often, it’s as much about them as it is me. They’re enjoying my company and getting out of their houses, so the money I’m spending isn’t just for my benefit.
This week’s #VlogMom question came from Veronica Pericon from Veep Veep who asked the perfect question for me:
What’s the last thing you bought that truly was worth it? Absolutely no regrets.
Wow. No regrets? I really had to think about it. Fortunately, the serendipity of this question and a conversation with some friends last week gave me my answer.
And no, this was not sponsored in any way. I truly love this store and drag all my friends there. They love it, too, and I constantly get complimented on items I’ve purchased there. If you’re in the Chicago area, head over to Dom itp and tell them I sent you – just for fun. There’s truly no compensation or sponsorship.
