I have a confession to make. I spent some of my stimulus check even though it was ear-marked for debt reduction. I couldn't even make it through the weekend with it in my bank account. Now that is a shame. I tell you what, managing money and working on a budget is no easy task.
As my birthday is approaching, my mother decided to take me clothes shopping. I am badly in need of work clothes since I will be starting a new job in August and the attire is more dressy. Being only 5'0 tall I can hardly ever find clothes in my size that do not need altered. Well, once you add the price of alteration on clothes, they are almost not worth buying. This weekend was a little bit different. I found four suits in a 4 Petite. It was wonderful. Being a Petite, they will not need to be altered. Needless to say, I couldn't pass them up. So my wonderful mother bought two and I used part of my stimulus check to buy the other two. I don't think it was frivolous spending and I am very happy with my purchases. Thus, in the end, I think it was money well spent.
