I sort of just blew through a lot of my tax return, and I feel sick about it, and now I have to come on here and publicly admit it, which makes me feel even sicker. Basically, this is what happened.
I spent half of it on new eyeglasses. I can't even wear the ones I have now because the script is so wrong. Even though I acknowledge this is a legitimate expense, I still feel weird about spending over 500 dollars on myself.
I bought a new outfit at the Gap for an important meeting I have on Tuesday. I might return it tomorrow, because I have something to wear... I'm still mulling that one over. I bought a bra, too, so the total was about $100. In my defense, I did use coupons and bought a slightly stained dress because it was marked down 20% (I think it's just dirt).
I spent $50 on the garden, including some fancy tomato plants that I'm probably going to kill. It seemed like a really good idea at the time.
I went over my gas AND grocery budgets for the month of April by about $150 (total).
