Why is it that when I get the itch to buy something for myself, I’m too busy budgeting for other things? It sucks, it really does. My shoes are coming today, every time the door to our office opens I hope that it’s the guys from the mailroom, delivering my Gilt Groupe-y goodness. That should satisfy my shopping bug, yes? I hope so.
I already mentioned that I’m trying to save money for summer activities, but really, I do plan on doing a lot of free things. Trips to Governor’s Island, sitting on the “free” side of shows in Prospect Park (also known as on the side of the fence where you can’t actually see the performers). I subscribe to Time Out New York, I know there’s a bunch of free and super-cheap things to do, and I plan on taking advantage of that.
However, everyone and their mother (literally) is having an occasion I need to buy presents for. Excluding Mother’s Day, in which I purchased something that I need to be partially re-imbursed for from my sisters:
- Mother’s birthday – this week
- Father’s birthday – next week
- Sister’s graduation from college – next week
- Father’s Day – mid-June
- Beau’s birthday – mid-June
- Sister’s birthday – mid-June
- Best friend’s birthday – end-June
- Other sister’s birthday – mid-July
