What would you do with an EXTRA $100?

The New Year has come and gone...for most of us our family budget is in full swing! We have a certain amount we spend at the grocery store as well as an amount we allot to spend on toiletry items. As far as myself is concerned I am good purchasing the items that are on sale...but for Mark he has certain items/brands that he needs to survive. ;)

With his line of work and his appearance he has to shave everyday...we found ourselves spending A LOT of money in razors. His skin is sensitive so we have to be careful what we purchase for him. After searching high and low for the best deal we stumbled across Dollar shave club online. We found we were going to save so much money as well as still be purchasing great quality razors! You can find all their great blades HERE.

The money we have saved allowed us to even gift subscriptions to some of the other great men in our family! DSC makes it so easy to sign up. It's easy to change your monthly shipment as well! Who doesn't enjoy saving $$!!!

What I would do with an EXTRA $100? It's such a tough question...from the mom stand point I want to run out to the nearest Old Navy and/or Gap to purchase the kids some new summer clothes. But if I was forced to spend it ALL ON ME...there are a few items I have my eye on next time I get that extra $100. ;)

I love a good mani/pedi but can't seem to justify it these days. I used to go all the time!  By the time I get a sitter and head to the salon I am already feeling guilty. I would be nice to be pampered and not worry about that bill at the end. ;) 

With $100 I could also purchase some new skin care items I have been looking into...I know it's better for my skin but it's a little hard to take the plunge and change my routine. 

I am SO READY for summer. We love the pool and spend lots of days each week there. I would love to shop the new Victoria's Secret catalog for a swim suit. 

How would you spend an extra $100? 


  1. oh gosh, in reality if I had an extra $100 I would spend it on my kids, but would love to just use it on myself! Mani and pedi, or new shoes! ;)

  2. Oh wow, a few different things come to mind:
    - a massage
    - a mani/pedi
    - new clothes
    - new perfume
    - Victoria's Secret (nuff said)


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
