Okay, so today I was going to place my order for my new LV.. And I was so pumped.. I am a student, graduating this spring.. My wedding is June 17th.. then I'm leaving Sweden and moving to the US with my hubby.. To get my Permanent Visa from the US embassy, I have to pay a LOT in fees (I'm talking 2 medium priced handbags here!! :evil: ).. I have two plane tickets to the US coming up that I need to pay for.. And then there's starting our lives together, get an apartment and get a job. I realise I might not be able to get a job right away.. Also, I did just buy a speedy 30 and a Ludlow wallet a month ago.. I have quite a bit of savings, enough for a down payment for a house.. And I've always been really responsible with them, I've treated them like they're off limits (parents raised me to SAVE). Right now I'm working 1 day a week, which adds up to about $400 a month. I also get money from the government for going to school (they do that here for everybody, rich or poor, AND universities are free ), about $400 a month.. I have NO loans and no credit credit card debts, so I don't owe anyone any money. I live with my parents right now (since I was only going back to Sweden for one year, and then I will move again), which I really enjoy because I won't see them very often after I move.. So no real living costs or expenses except for like hygene products and stuff. I try not to eat out very often and have cheap gym memberships since I work as a fitness instructor as well. Sooo, I have money coming in.. But I feel like I really should be responsible with them and save.. because we'll be getting a house soon and what not.. And the fees for the embassy and the plane tickets will really add up! So today I was overwhelmed with guilt and decided NOT to buy the LV item for $400.. And now I'm wondering if I did the right thing... How do you know where to draw the line between treating yourself with pretty things and saving up money that might be needed later on?? I don't know! What's your opinion? How do you deal with this?
