In a year when there is so much we can’t do, I’ve started to reevaluate what I spend money on. I may never go back to spending as much on grooming, on travel, on eating out, and on working out. After not doing it for a year, it seems excessive and extreme and totally unsustainable. No wonder I’m always “broke”!
On the other hand, I’m examining things I’ve never allowed myself to spend money on.
The juxtaposition of the two makes little sense.
For instance, I have had absolutely threadbare running shoes for three years. I have had so many people tell me that I need new running shoes. Whether it’s my old OrangeTheory coaches or folks in the Chairman Mom thread where I talked about losing a toenail! Somehow spending $100 on shoes seemed like the equivalent of buying a Picasso.
