Yes, those are cute things. I am not angry and dont think i am trying to pu you down. I know that shopping is fun and can boost your mood, and sometimes make a person feel good about themselves. But please take a moment to think about my comment without getting defensive.In your blog, you say that you are on food stamps, WIC, and have a part time job. But you seem to buy a lot of things. Please think about how that might make somebody like me feel. My child has what he needs, but not many extras. His clothes are not fancy. They are often bought at the second hand store. You can get some REALLY cute, cool stuff there especially for kids because kids grow out of stuff so fast, and people bring stuff to these stores in great condition! Just a little info for you all! :) Anyway, i work and money is taken off my cheque each month for you to be able to have food stamps, wic so that the money you DO have can be spent on things like zebra striped makeup brushes, air jordans for your 1 year old etc.. Does that seem fair to you? i can not afford luxeries for myself but money is taken away from me so that you can have them.Dont know if you have looked at it that way. Again, not trying to be mean. Just wanted to state my opinion. Oh and i know how fun shopping is. I used to buy myself all sorts of things, but now that i am older, i wish SO MUCH that i had saved my money so that i could have bought a better house in a better neighborhood, saved for college etc.. Those things many seem so unimportant to you now, and it may seem there is so much time later to save money, but I really wish i had listened when others told me to save my money or invest it. I really hope this doesnt seem mean. I really like you as a person. You seem like a super fun, nice person! :)
