I just don't know what to do!

This fantastic little capelet is on sale at Anthropologie.  And I could totally make one. I could even do that embroidery myself. But I could never make it for the low low price of $29.99 that they are selling it at.  It's wool. And the hours... 

anyway - the problem. We have a new budget and I've already blown through my allowance and it's a question of "can I REALLY not live without it or is my wanter just on overdrive right now?"

$30 for a capelet from Anthro? I say go for it!

Hannah said...

I agree. I mean, when is the next time you will get something that cute for $30 again. Deduct it from next month if you must.. or sell a bean bag! :)

I dunno, but the new look of your blog is SO CUTE!!

I would say go for it. It's WAY cute! I'm not too good at staying on budgets though. So maybe you shouldn't listen to me.

I can tell all the posters are young ladies like yourself.... ahem!! Now a voice from the mommy side of the coin. No you do NOT need it! You may want it, lust for it, cry for it lol... but you do not need it. Now if you can sell something to raise the money for it yourself, that is different, otherwise you need to stay on the budget you worked out. Yep, can you believe I said that? ROFL

I have to agree with the voice of reason and budget: Don't buy it unless you can raise some extra money or rearrange your budget otherwise (can the fam do with $30 less food this month? heheh...). Then again, I'm not a huge capelet wearer, and you probably won't get to be much of one for the first little while after #3 is born. (Yes, I'm Ms. Frugal these days)

These comments really have me thinking. I am afraid that you should wait until next month and then buy it, because they will still have it, and your budget will lead you to home ownership!
