Before marriage I was a true blue kuripot. You'd think I'd have a huge savings, right? Wrong. I had no savings. Because although I frown upon spending money on myself I lavishly spend it on the ones I love. I get guilt trips whenever I have to buy something for myself. Even if my shoes is practically begging for a replacement, I'd still wear it. Because buying new shoes meant money spent on me. Which is money not well spent. That was what I thought. But if I see something that a loved one would like I'd buy it on the spot. Ridiculous right?
Now that I am married, hubs is teaching me to spend things for myself guilt-free. (to a certain degree)
I'm so lucky to have a husband like him!
