Seriously! I have $35-40 to spend on myself, online only, and I have no idea what I want/need. I need a new swimsuit so I can start swimming laps, but I can get one for less at Dunham's here in town than I can online+shipping, so that's out. I would like to get a new dress for DH's class reunion in a few weeks, but I need to try it on first, so that makes me nervous. Though I could go to ON and try on a few I think I like, then order online...but again, shipping. I know I'm getting a Nook or Kindle soon, so I could save it and buy books, but that doesn't seem fun.

I literally never ever ever spend any money on myself and this is why. I don't "need" or "want" anything ever. Well, I do but I always have a hard time justifying it when the girls need something more than I do.

I'm not much help because I'm the same way. I made myself use my mother's day gift card from my MIL on myself. I'll think about it and see if I can come up with something.

I'm the same way. I can think of a zillion things the girls need and i could do without the things i need for a while.

Mylene- i've got a new Kindle in the box and never used. If you decide you want that over the nook I'd sell it cheaper than buying one new from amazon

I think every mother knows this situation. It's so hard!

When you say, "online", what does that mean exactly? Like, a GC to certain stores? Paypal money? What?

Because I was going to suggest you see if you can order a GC to a spa for a massage or manicure or something.

I don't have the physical GC, it's a virtual one. So I have a Visa number and the other info from the card, just no card. I registered it and it's legit, so no problems there!

I just had that thought Wendy. I neeeeed a new style but the salon I want to go to is local and doesn't have a website. I might see about a spa.com gc though...

I was gonna suggest a physical gift card to get a service at a salon done such as a mani/pedi or a new hair style.

Hmmm do you need any new cosmetics? Something special for the reunion in a few weeks?

What about a new bra? Vicotria's secret semiannual sale is currently going on...

That's all I can think of right now...
