We all have them. Some we share, some we don’t. I’m talking about those guilty pleasures. Those things that we don’t necessarily tell or little indulgences that may cause us to spend money we shouldn’t. I’m not talking about anything illegal or disturbing, just those extra little non-essential things that bring us a small bit of happiness. Today I decided to share a few of my guilty pleasures( I hope my husband doesn’t read this).
Lipton Kcups: I became nothing short of addicted to Quik Trip tea when I was pregnant with my youngest(15 years ago) and I had been drinking more soda but as time went on my addition grew. I sat down at the end of 2018 to see where I could save money, and was shocked to my find that I was spending $150 or more a month on tea from there. I knew that had to stop. I pulled out the Mr.Coffee tea maker but it just wasn’t the same. I tried different things to duplicate QT but nothing I did was quite right. In my effort to save money I continued trying but thought in the mean time I would try Kcups. I am now stuck on them, the tea maker is again collecting dust and I spend about $20-$30 a week on Lipton Kcups. Not much saving there.
Anything related to Flying Pigs: When I was in High School, my dad told me in a converstion, that he would buy me a brand-new car “when pigs fly”. Since then I have became quite hooked on all things flying pig related. Now while there is an unending quantity of pig things out there, pigs with wings are harder to find, but I buy them when I do. I have them outside, inside, in my bedroom, and office. I have them in my kitchen too. Now you would think that in twenty years and being so hooked that my collection would be taking over but like I said they are harder to find and I don’t have an unlimited budget. But I have a few…
My last confession is my Nail polish: My nails are generally how I choose to express my creativity. Sometimes I have acrylics and sometimes I’m a natural girl but regardless of what type of nails I sport, it’s all about the polish. My nail lady is amzing at producing the nail art that I come up with and I own a moderate nail polish collection but always want more. I love China Glaze but in our small town there isn’t any place that sells it and that has to be my “special” polish purchase because it is steep in price. Below is a picture of my collection.
We all have them and these are my biggest guilty pleasures. What are yours? I’m interested to know.
