5 Wonderful Things I Want & 5 Things I'm Buying Instead Because I'm a Grown-Up

wanted boughtI keep a list of stuff I want to buy ... eventually. I keep adding items to it, and it never seems to get any shorter. Why? Because of a competing list: Stuff I have to buy. You know what I'm talking about: Home repairs, summer camp, baby's new shoes. All that stuff responsible grown-ups have to take care of. Derr! STUPID RESPONSIBLE ADULTHOOD RUINING ALL MY FUN. Sometimes those necessities are so boring. I don't mean to complain, but -- oh what the hell. I'm going to complain.

I think the worst "grown-up" thing to buy is new tires for the car. They're so very expensive, and just not exciting at all. That being said, I do try to be thankful that I have the money to buy all the boring necessities, because so many people don't. I'm not always successful though :)

Ugh yes, car expenses! And also car and house insurance... I always feel like that's bs cause I have nothing tangible to show for the money I just shelled out!

YESSSS car repairs! Ugh! I just had to spend 300$ on new axles for my car, so that my husband could commute 2hrs away for work every day.

I also hate having to buy piddly household items that we NEED, but just end up feeling like a waste of money when they all need to be bought at once.

Dish & laundry soap

Shampoo, soap, and other toiletries for all 6 people

Vacuum cleaner bags

And on, and on, and on...

Pft. I could have gotten my hair done.
