I have $100

Monday, August 18, 2008

My mom gave it to me for my birthday, and made me promise not to use it to pay bills, buy groceries, or add to savings. She said I have to go out and spend it on something.

So now I have to figure out what that is.

What do I need most? Probably new clothes. Don't laugh, I'm serious. I am a woman that hates to shop (I know, *gasp*) so I am usually in desperate need of new clothes.

What do I want most? I'm not sure. Hmm. There are still some things left on our registry to buy, but I don't think any of them are particularly fun.

What to buy, what to buy...

I'd go for a massage or a haircut.

Brace yourselves: I have never, ever had a massage.

Please go get a massage. I feel so sad when I hear/read that people have gone without for so long. Go on yelp and find a good spa in your area since there are spa's that suck.

They usually cost about $60-$70. Then you have enough money left over to buy a couple new shirts or a pair of pants.

My grandma recently was given a huge settlement from a car accident two years ago and gave her kids and grandkids money. I had no idea how to spend it! It is easy to spend your own money, but hard to decide how to use money just handed to you.

Massage is a good suggestion. If you're still loving the classes you took, you could always enroll in a different type of cooking class. Or, you could get an iPod shuffle. Or, a mani/pedi. So many options!!

I had never gotten a massage until our honeymoon. We got a couple's massage on the cruise ship (which was ridiculously overpriced) and it was pretty great. I don't know if I'm going to end up being a "massage person" that goes all the time (like some people I work with who go once a week or twice a month), but it was nice to try it. I think that's a good suggestion, especially since you've never had one.

Something pampering (massage, mani/pedi, haircut), like the other suggestions, would be good because you probably don't spend your regular money on it very often. I'm the same way.
