Couples Corner - Shopping Galore


Rodliz’s Nest

Very interesting topic in Couples Corner for shopaholic gals, it's "shopping galore". Thanks to Mommyliz for hosting this meme. We get the chance to speak out our mind and talk about our marriage, husband and family in this Couple Corner.

Shopping is a stress reliever for me when I was single and up until now that I am married. But the only difference is I could take a loan when I was single so I have money for shopping where as now I have to ask for massage payment from babger so I have money to shop. Now that I have kids I don't shop for myself, I think of my kids first. When I was single, I like buying branded stuff but now, $1 sale on Wal-Mart will do with the brand that I don't know its name hehehe. The last time I did a shopping galore was when my husband gave me $100 as anniversary gift and that was 2 years ago. In that amount I only got couple of Victoria secret stuff and shirts at aeropostale. Ohhh boy! Imagine the value of that money here, absolutely not enough. If I shop that amount back home I would surely get a bunch. Last weekend, we went to the mall for Santa and a little shopping for family gifts. Lots of things I wanted to buy but they are very expensive. It is funny, coz every time I look at the tag, I just let go of it so quick and forget about it, then hubby would asked how much...I answered him, lets not talk about it. It's very expensive; I can't afford to buy nice things now. I'm glad the Nordstrom had a sale and bought a jacket worth 40 bucks, I was happy and contented with it. It's my reward for myself. Gone are the days when we could shop whatever we want.

Kayo kayo lang ang nagkaka intindihan dyan ha, wahhhh!

Massage payment ka pala, ehehehe..parang ako, kapag need ko ng something, mamasahehin ko si hubby from head to toe "wink" hahaha! Totoo ka, ngayong me mga anak na tayo, wala ng brand brand, basta pwedeng isuot. sabi nga ni Dhemz eh brandless na. Saka ang mga bata naman madaling lumaki, pwede na kahit mumurahin, kapag nanalo tayo sa lotto, then we can buy them anything.

Hay! ano kaya ang feeling ng mayayaman when it comes to shopping, di na siguro tumitingin sa price, basta nagustuhan, bibilhin na agad.

Clarissa said...

Concentrate on the little joys, the little blessings and the happiness that your children are giving you. Never focus on your lack for you will just feel miserable. Everything passes and things will turn out to become better. Huwag mo ring icompare ang prices dyan dito sa Pinas. Siyempre mura ang bilihin dito pag dollar ang pera mo. You have learned to be selfless when you got your children and that's nice. You will see a better future as the Lord ordains. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always. Merry Christmas to you all.

I so relate to you sis.. Once married and being in a wife's shoes, just makes a person so adjustable and thoughtful. :-)

Bambie dear ★ said...

kakatuwa ka naman magkwento pero i so much agree. Ganun yata talaga pag nagka-anak na, laging para sa mga kids at last na lang yung para sa atin. Parang satisfaction na rin makita natin sila well-dressed. Ang sarap din naman kasi bihisan ang mga kids, parang mga dolls lol. Anyway, have a nice day.. sayang dire ko maintindihan yung ibang comments, mukhang may nakakatawang hirit.

kiss and huggies to your cutie kids =)
