Today's Letters: Dear Mr. Loerke, since we've been married I've used your toothbrush, borrowed your body wash, and have slept in your unmentionables. But after wearing your deodorant for the past 5 days I kind of feel like our friendship has reached a new level. Dear Twinner, in honor of the hours we used to spend watching Gleaming the Cube and skateboarding down Dad's driveway I thought I'd share THIS video with you. Love you more than Vision Street Wear kicks and ollies. Dear Meatbagz, some women splurge on make-up, some on shoes, other's on designer purses. Me? Just give me a cute satchel to carry all of my camera shiz in and I'm a happy little honey bee. Looking forward to Mr. McFeely's special delivery! Dear Husband, t-minus 20 days until we celebrate your Dirty 30. Just sayin.

What's the one thing you'll spare no expense on? Coffee? Shoes? Kitchen gadgets? Men, don't be shy.

I have to admit I'm a coffee addict! I just bought myself a new Tassimo Hot Beverage system, that makes all sorts of yummy drinks! :).

oddly...food. Just normal every day stuff at the grocery store though. There was a period of time (it SEEMED like forever but really wasn't that long) that I had to take a calculator to the grocery store. Things are different (for which I am grateful) now and although I am frugal by nature I think buying a whole bag of oranges or the big bag of milk will always feel like a splurge.

most often, yarns. :)

Coffee, cheese, meat...but that's not to say I don't also drink gas station java, cheese from a can or McDonalds "meat" from time to time.

If this little goodie bag is coming your way, you are one lucky gal! It's amazing!

I used to spare no expense on shoes - something my Dad taught me - now, I'm so cheap I don't spend money on anything! xo

I discovered while living in Japan that I spare no expense when it comes to granola.

Weird. I know.

But seriously look for Dorset Cereals granola...and try it. I traveled to Tokyo just to stockpile once.

I know it is hard to believe, but I spare no expense on outdoor gear. Does not matter what it is... new tent, rock climbing gear, backpack, or even another Mountain Hardware jacket.

cute bag! we spend big bucks on a delicious meal when we go out. we cook almost all meals at home (and enjoy it) and i make my husband lunch every day...so it's such a treat when we do go out and we go big. we're foodies and love a good bottle of wine.

coffee. is it possible to be a coffeeie? we actually budget for good coffee so we're never let down by the not so great stuff!
xo!

Grace @ Arms Wide Open said...

Love your bag!

after a recent review our our budget, i can say -- with certainty -- we spare no expense whatsoever on pet food. our littles eat better than we do (and we eat pretty darned good!). i believe it's part of my responsibility as their caretaker to be sure they are eating the highest quality, species-appropriate diet available to them. raw, raw, raw! they enjoy their meals and treats and are happy, healthy critters as a result. win/win!

p.s. LOVE the custom meatbagz! xo

i definitely coffee is something i will pay good money for, but it has to be at a good place. for example, it isn't likely i will pay $4+ at a Starbucks, but i will pay that amount at a coffee shop that's not a chain.

Kirsten said...

Dinner's out (which don't happen very often in an attempt to be frugal)and on fly fishing gear... no "made in China" shiz here! (Husband has taught me that!)

addison said...

beer. life's too short to drink cheap beer.

My husband and I have shared deodorant for about 10 years (married 12 years this past August)... the only thing I ask of him is to remove his hairs from it following use.

Also, I pay good money for shoes and clothes... my guilty pleasure!

nicole said...

food...good delectable local, organic , foodie food.

Han said...

Erm diet coke - it's gotta be the proper stuff - store own brand doesn't taste the same no matter what anyone says lol.

First off,
that meatbagz site is dynamite! I have too many friends that would love those as a gift! (Myself included but I like to give over receiving :)
Second, I always splurge on earrings. Funny too because I didn't pierce my ears until I was 20 hah! And now I can never have too many dangles or studs!

Once I started buying my own clothes I was ridiculously cheap because I LOVED clothes and shoes that looked good but didn't want to spend all my money on one thing. Then I splurged on a pair of gorgeous victorian style Clarks heels, and felt terrible about it, and my dad said 'good for you! They'll last forever!' I've learned some things are well, well worth spending money on, and I have to watch it or I become high maintenance.

Also, high quality make up - MAC powder, concealer, and lipwear =)

hubs and i have a little rule (or lack thereof) where we agree that it's always worth it to invest in our marriage (financially, and otherwise!). it has been such a joy these past 2 years knowing we can splurge a little or a lot on/for each other, sans guilt trip.
