What Do You Spend Money On?

Everyone has different priorities when it comes to spending money. Some people spend up on almost everything, while others will pay as little as they can as often as they can.

Do you buy designer handbags & eat noodles for dinner?
Do you spend up on skincare but use cheap cosmetics?
Where do you draw the line?

I think it’s very important to spend money on things that will last, like shoes & coats. If you buy well the first time, it will save you money in the long run. I also think it’s crucial to look after your skin. If the only way my skin looked good was by buying La Mer products, then you better believe I’d spend the money — but thankfully, I survive on a combination of Lush Cosmetics (super-cheap) & M.A.C. skincare. (I switch on & off, it’s good to vary your skincare routine.)

However, I like to go cheap on most of my underwear — the cheap stuff tends to be much cuter! I also like to buy undershirts from the children’s departments of major stores, which is very inexpensive. While I have expensive taste in makeup, I like to save on it by buying it off Ebay (after trying it instore first). I’ve also never been very interested in expensive bags: I prefer to buy several at a cheaper price, that way I have more options.

How do you prioritise?
