I have a confession: I am cheap. I am always on the lookout for a good deal, confident that I can find the expensive product at a cheaper price. I come from a family of bargain shoppers. We don't buy things unless they are obscenely cheap.
I have another confession: I love expensive things. I have developed a taste for the luxuries in life. A habit I picked up from my husband, who was taught that it is better to buy the best and be happy.
I've had to learn to appease my two loves: luxuries and bargains. Impossible? I think not. I have recently been caught buying a $199 diaper bag for $40 and $150 shoes for $29.
I have one more confession to divulge: I adore a certain expensive parfum. But...it is more money than my cheap heart can handle. Whenever I was in the mall, I would stop in to Nordstom and ask for a sample of it. Samples=Free=Obscenely Cheap. I've looked for a cheaper price with no avail. I tried to forget about my smell-love by purchasing a cheaper perfume by Lacoste last January, but it just didn't measure up and I've been unhappy since I purchased it.
My husband, being the gem that he is, bought me THE PARFUM for my birthday, and I have been in aroma heaven ever since. Oh my. It is the best. Sometimes, spending the extra money is necessary. (And, you won't waste money on the cheaper perfume that you will never end up wearing.) Check it out the next time you are in Nordstom. Ask for a sample...or two. And, then be ready to go back for more.
