a paradox

Riddle me this:

When I was single, I went shopping whenever I wanted to. I wasn't a spending fiend, but I certainly didn't suppress my shopping cravings. Now that I'm married, I rarely go shopping because we are watching our money expenditure. I was equally as poor when I was single as we are now married! Actually, if you think about it, we have more money now because we have combined bank accounts and incomes. So why can't I go shopping?!

Because my husband is more responsible than me, that's why.
(And I admit that I am extremely grateful for how smart he is with money.)

If I could spend all our money, here are some items that I would stock my closet with:


  1. hhaha. I agree. We have double the money! Why not shop? Husbands...more responsible. Love it. Love all those clothes too. That Scoop-neck top. I want it!!

  3. Isn't that the truth!
    I work at Old Navy.......makes life hard.
    Old Navy and Gap + employee discount. Sometimes I come home with clothes. Can't help it!

  4. sometimes daydreaming about the things you would buy if you could is almost as good... almost! haha i do this frequently. sometimes i even fill my online shopping carts up, get to the check out section, put all my info in, and then decided i don't NEED these things and our money would be better spent elsewhere. cute wish list :)

  5. It's not easy..
    but turns out my husband loves to shop.. he is always finding great little pieces.. but he waits for it to go on clearance or sale..
