Okay, I never buy myself anything, I suffer from buyingformyself remorse. I have a couple things I want, one is a double jogging stroller, the other is an outfit, some jean capris and a pretty sky blue dressy top that would go lovely with my blue wedge sandals.
Stroller about $150
Heres where it gets tricky. I have no clothes so I need the outfit, but its only one outfit, so it isn't really solving the issue of nothing to wear. Then I want the stroller, its nice, I can't start running until I get it, but I could wait and find a cheaper one on CL.
If I dont figure this out I won't get myself anything and go buy mulch.

Welcome to the world lil' man!!
Hmm....I tough choice. I think I'd get the outfit and look for a cheaper stroller on CG. No right or wrong here though, just what you want more at the moment. I only picked outfit because I know how one outfit that fits and is attractive can lift my mood.
I would buy the stroller, but I would try to find it cheaper. Here is my reasoning, one it is 'useful', my mind tends to think of things in those terms. Two, the stroller would help with me loosing weight. If I bought an outfit now my goal would be to shrink out of it, in my brain that means a waste of money and means more money having to be spent on clothes down the road...
Sorry, not sure that helps but that is just how I think lol
I would buy the stroller if you know in your heart that you will actually use it. If I was planning to do some activities like jogging that will likely make me lose weight I wouldnt want to spend money on clothes right now.
I would spend the money on the stroller, then go buy myself a second hand outfit.
definitely buy the outfit Although I might buy the outfit and split the difference between the stroller and the outfit to try to get a second hand stroller, too, if you are the type to really stick to the excersize thing.
I just bought a treadmill For me, a better investment than a stroller because it's REALLY hot here (Northern Ca 100-110+ summers) and I don't want to take the baby out in the heat of the day and can't always get organized enough early in the day (not to mention the sun in the baby's eyes factor).
And I love clothes I don't have a lot of them now, because I, too, have byformyself remorse, lol... but I do so enjoy the dreamy aspect of looking at beautiful clothing
